Scrambled eggs and swedish meatballs. I never would have thought of that combination, but it sounds marvelous. What a interesting tour of what seems like a interesting city.

Sounds fabulous! I love the daylight at 11pm...or even later. Can hardly wait for the pics.

Can't wait to see the pictures. Can I vacation vicariously through you?

I was feeling kinda bad that we haven't taken the kids on a vacation in three years. Not even a weekend trip, but my guilt was erased mostly when two of my children were invited to go on other people's vacations. They spent their own money out of their savings accounts. I figure that is what savings accounts are for, special occasions. My kids get an allowance for chores and tend to not spend it till they have a two or three hundred dollars. This makes me feel like they are growing up the right way. Well, I hope you are having the time of your life.

Oh wow, there are 4-door Smart cars, didn't know that.

What's 5-feet high, 8-feet long, comes in ''phat red" and ''jack black," and gets 60 miles to the gallon?

It's the Smart car. Made by DaimlerChrysler, with a rear-mounted three-cylinder turbo-charged engine, the Smart car has a transmission designed by Mercedes-Benz. Shown here is the 4-door Smart.

Which color did you have?

My buddy.

Love your travel reports! I'm with Susan -- great to vacation vicarously. And looking forward to the photos too. Are you in Russia now? No Internet Cafes there?

Well if you read this on Aug. 3: "С днем рождения"

I have no idea how to pronounce that of course. But supposedly it means "Happy Birthday!"

Here's to a year ahead of even more adventure and joie de vivre.

susan said...

Happy Birthday. May you have a blessed year.
