Yup it's another gray day. It has been difficult to stay connected to the Internet.The rain perhaps or the road work. The morning was lazy, we planned some trips and menu's then went shopping. There were some things I can't seem to find here, so this is where we headed first.
Whats wrong with this picture?
Whats even worse is this:
So let me get this straight. I can drive on the wrongs side of the road and do 100 MPH and not get a ticket?
My kind of country :-) Needless to say it will be a while before I take the car, Not only do I have a tendency to look the wrong way, They have a lot of "turn abouts" here. Now traffic circles are hard enough to deal with in my country, here they are are worse. You are going in the opposite direction you should be and exiting, which to me, always seems in the wrong direction.
They sell food by the gram. so me ordering lunch meat was a riot. I f I had not been corrected, the meat I ordered would have cost about $200 LOL stick with 100 grams and your safe.
So all in all it was an interesting day. It was a day of learning and visiting some very interesting stores.
Oh and would you believe they never heard of cranberries in a can? I caught myself from saying don't you have turkey on Thanks Giving ...of course they don't. They also don't have Catalina dressing, so there goes one special dinner I was going to cook . But they do have Pumpkin so Pumpkin soup is still on the menu, as is Jambalaya .
We are hoping for some sun, although we won't be "sight seeing " until after this week-end. They want me to take some time to relax . I intend to do just that. Ilka and I have a shopping trip planned for Saturday. She is taking me to see the Craft Store here WooHooo.
A wee bit of home sickness sets in now and again...How far is 10,547 kilometers anyway? That's how far away I am from the shores of the USA <sigh>
All is well at home (I checked) So all is right with the world) It's 10 min. after 4 in the morning and I was finally able to BLOG. Can you tell I'm still on USA time?
See you tomorrow, same place.
