Ok so a lot of you who know what a picky eater I am asked me how I was going to handle this world travel thing. My answer was this: I figure there will always be bread and fruit wherever we are. ... I have something to add to that list... Nutella. I haven't been able to find peanut butter a lot of places but Nutella is everywhere yummy!

I now know that I need more creature comforts than I thought I did. I also know I can "hold it" (my bladder that is) longer than I thought possible before, while I wait for a decent bathroom (hopefully one with a toilet and not just a hole in the floor).

Dirtiest bathroom so far.... the one at the London Bridge Tube station. Disgusting!

I used to think that satelite TV meant tons of stations. Now I understand that it means a good number of stations with all of the interesting ones (NBC, FOX, ABC...)blocked and any others are dubed into the language of the country you are in with no way to change it back to English (or even get subtitles in English) I know...poor me.

We take for granted the system of garbage disposal we have in Canada.

Not being a part of the culture of the majority really makes you feel left out, not to mention a little nervous and isolated. This is especially true for Women and for those who don't know the language either.

The call to prayer is lovely EXCEPT at 5:30am when your house is situated between two minerets.

The best part of travelling is meeting other people.

I need to be warm. When I am cold I am not happy.

You should never tell someone they are getting a bad deal on something unless you can remedy the situation.

No matter where you go there are good people that will help you out.

I hope all is well with you all. Future shop has let me know (when I signed on to my mail) that there are only 20 shopping days left until Christmas. This is shocking! Of course there is no snow here and no mention of Christmas (and we are missing the Christmas cartoons-actually we are watching German ones but ....- and our favourite Christmas music.) We miss you all dearly and can't wait to come home to see you all.

Turkey time
Hi guys;
Glad you are enjoying the 'new world' you are in. We hope to hear from you when you're home this month. I've been planning our Greece & Turkey trip for April but haven't booked anything yet. Sounds like you would recommend Ryanair in Europe. Have you rented a car anywhere?
See you soon.
