Headed there for work next month for a week. Approx 1.5 days off during that time, plus a few dinners.
Suggestions for any activities, restaurants, sites, shopping would be appreciated from anyone who's lived or visited.
I got hit by DHL in my last order of 3 ties. I had not been previously, either DHL or postal. $20.20 on $274. Not bad for 2 days shipping. I had never been hit with duties on the slow boat method, but it takes 3 weeks to arrive. I only had one prior DHL order and no duties. Considering I've now bought something close to 15 ties and paid a total of $20.20 in duties I consider it a win.
I believe that's what AFPOS is looking into. Personally I would prefer it with a medallion on the toe cap of the Moore as well or a medallion toe adelaide with no cap, but beggars can't be choosers. I really just want an oxblood oxford from AS.
Of course they have killed off all of her handmaids and bloodriders. Probably just b/c they can't afford to keep a cast of thousands so in order to add Missendei and Daario they have to kill Dany's other secondary characters. They could have at least put Daario in charge of the Stormcrows so that Brown Ben Plumm could be introduced later. I expect he will have a role to play in the story.
Given the graphic nature of the show, Tywin really should have stood up, had Tyrion shoot him in the bowel, and for him to shit himself. Then, Tyrion could have reloaded and said, "I guess you don't really shit gold." That would have been nice for book readers, given that they dropped the whole Tysha motivation.
Except, while it's cold, down by the Wall, it's not thick snows yet. It's hardly fall, much less winter. Mance surrendered and many of his men were lost in the initial attack by Stannis, but the vast majority of his horde fled. They just picked up and ran. They weren't conquered as much as their vanguard was broken and their main and rear were scattered. Stannis only attacked and broke the tip of the spear.
