Be careful on the brick streets off of Sheridan. They're uneven in places and quite slick when wet.
Brezhnev-era Soviet party time. Songs about Russia and Russians. .
Certainly seems that way.Just a few suggestions. I play tennis and squash. I play a lot of bridge - used to think it was a game for grannies, but it's pretty awesome, and I can do 12-hour sessions. In the winter I ski a lot and that wipes me out and keeps me out of bars. But I also still drink and at certain times each year you'll find me obliterated, such as at the Hong Kong Sevens.
Thanks for the sale and for the heads up. Just bought the Dallas - I like the look of the double sole. Pity I didn't wait on purchasing the Ramsey, which I did a few weeks ago. Could've picked up the Regent too with what I would have saved between the two I bought. BTW, that's one impressive refinishing job you have going there, gdot. Let me ask you this: if your efforts didn't turn out as desired would you be able to return the shoe back to its original color?
Duck grilled on rebar over real charcoal in a oil drum. Doenjang and soy & wasabi dipping sauces. Kimchi, sliced green onion, and lettuce to wrap it all in. Makgeolli (rice wine). Baked sweet potatoes for dessert.
There you go m8, that's the spirit.I understand the attraction of someone doing it all for you (for a high price, of course), and if you were accompanying your elderly & infirm grandparents it would be prudent to avail yourself of those services. But on your own... embrace the challenge. Best thing about traveling isn't only the people, places and culture, but also learning about yourself, getting by on your wiles and developing your resiliency. And if all else fails......
^ That's a great one there, javyn. Gomez.
Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Hall. Golly, don't miss that. Much of the itinerary is good, and it's on a well-beaten path that you can do on your own. I'd skip the 4-star hotels and stay at guest houses and hostels where you can meet other travelers and do things together. For example this one in Xian. I'd also travel by train rather than plane where possible.
India is NOT 90% desert - heck, even Rajasthan is only 60%. If you're looking for wintery cold I urge you to visit Kashmir; gets so cold the locals wear portable braziers of live coals under their cloaks called pherans, most of them brown. Fantastic skiing at Gulmarg, btw.
A golden retriever. And apparently 400 gajllion dust mites.You know, if you don't want to take off your shoes the second time just make sure your bare feet are dirtier than the shoes the first time.
