America is Dangerous!

Non-Flammamble Vegetable Based Oil!

at least they have the good sense to warn a person.

Minor Updating

*** ***

Everyone is reading this (see link above). I just read it. Eureka. I seriously think this writer & I were separated at birth. In fact, in a few hours I will be calling my mother to ask if she produced two children without me knowing.

And while this person's updates are frequent & a lot more involved.... I do sincerely feel, if I had any motivation - and ability to draw sloppy pictures - I would give her stuff a run for its money. Very possibly.

Read the one on spiders though. She nails that.

I Went to Greece

Here's what you should know - if you are contemplating a trip there too.

1) Go in the off season.
~ this holds true for most places in my opinion. Early May or September.

2) Do not go during high season.
~ ok, yes this was just mentioned. But can't stress it enough.

~ Unless you want to: jockey for a seat on a bus, or have all the buses be sold out. Or wait 3 days for the next ferry because the one you wanted was sold out. Etc.

3) Greece has a lot of natural beauty. If you are into that, go to Greece. If you need air conditioning & don't like walking places, go to Las Vegas.

4) No 'to-do' list.

We just showed up at a bus station, & got on a bus marked "Red Beach." It was gorgeous. Like a place where a movie with Leonardo DiCaprio as an adventurer of some sort would be filmed.

The fun of discovery - places to hike, eat, swim, photograph donkeys.

Leave your Fodor's at home.

Just killed a spider the size of Ecuador.

(It was. I swear.)

Anything spider-related must be broadcast to the world to somehow mitigate the fear.

Mentally Planning Meals for the Next Trip Home

When I get back to the U.S. this is what I am going to eat.

The maple syrup will be warm, and it will cost no more than $14.
Everything included.

Started to wash my face. Lathered soap onto hands, then face. Then realized my glasses were still on...

Home for the Holidays


...Zip Lock bags, tea, toothpaste, shampoo, dental floss, magazines, instant oatmeal.

All these things made their way into my suitcase!

I feel toiletry & home item theft is my birthright. Especially given the 200% mark-up on stuff in Switzerland!
