From the Saddle or Travel – the reality! by Capt’n Cork n Cruisin’ Cate
27 July 2010 Farewell to US Voyager and Yankspeak
We’ll disembark today in Stockholm & for some blessed relief from….”ain’t that purdie”—-”…know what I mean!!! (not ????) “—”Oh Sydney ORRstarlia, we just luuuuuve Sidney”, Jaysus they crap on and for some reason at 10 decibels higher than comfortable audio.
Been super lucky with the weather—one rainstorm for 2 hours at St Petersburgh—that’s all for the whole 10 days, temps over 30`C.
The locals are wilting, hottest day for 75 years & last winter was one of their coldest….puts climate change back on the agenda (is Julia game?) Interesting to observe the Yanks seem so dependant upon their fully airconditioned existence that they can’t cope with the heat and raise their voices another 10 decibels to tell anyone and everyone.
After Stockholm, we fly to Moscow and independently tour for 5 days. Thereafter Japan for a similar stint. I’m not sure how I’ll go with future emails in these nations where their alphabet is so different. I saw a Russian keypad & most keys have 3 icons/letters/symbols. Imaging the spellcheck task!
So, till next time or home, hope everyone is well and happy. Please thank Julia G for delaying the election till Aug 21st. Every vote will count.
Cheers and beers
