Comment on More blog, less Cuba by Faran

Fri, 09 Oct 2015 15:22:50 +0000

Yes you're right about adjusting and I am prtety good at doing that after living in 7 different countries now. But I think Cuba has its idiosyncracies. I spent over 2 hours driving around the whole of Havana looking for nappies (daipers) as I am just not willing to start on the old fashioned ones. Eventually I found some Vietnamese ones in a gasolinera! Anyway Saskia is 2 soon so we will be potty training her as fast as possible. CUba is changing fast and long gone are the days of the special period but things are tough with bad distribution and erratic importation. The other side of knowing lots of different countries though is that I now miss things from UK, Mexico, Guatemala, France, China .. it is a case of just being patient and enjoying the good things when they come your way!

Comment on Movie Review: The Chronicles of Riddick by Tosker

I too liked Pitch Black quite a bit - mainly beuacse it gave us an alien planet that was truely alien, not just a piece of Earth in space. The sequel I didn't like much though - too much bad science and too much superhuman Redick.A.B.L.

Thank you, Plamen! I usually write these posts without doing any research -- they're just observations -- but I love when they're either verified or refuted. Here I am, learning new things about Bulgaria, 4 years after I visited!

I dropped on your post accidentally and enjoyed it :-) Couldn't help to make a few comments: - "What I found interesting was that there are 20-cent coins in the mix, and no “quarters,” or 25-cent pieces. (Since Bulgaria, we’ve seen that again with Euros.)" What I find interesting is that there are actually many countries using 25c pieces, I thought it was some US peculiarity :-) - " VMware. Seriously? I’ve never seen their name on a building before!" Probably because you usually put company names on plates beside the building :-) ( - "I don’t know how much it actually cost to use one of those shopping carts. I sort of doubt it was a revenue-generating scheme for the store..." Since you never used the carts, you never noticed you get your coin back when you return them :-)

Dear Midgets, I would like to use a couple of your Galapagos tortoises photos for a nonprofit scientific paper. How do I get permission and also background information? I can only communicate by traditional email. Thanks for attention! Yehudah (Professor Emeritus of Zoology, Hebrew University of Jerusalem.)

Comment on PV019: The Newbold-White House by martha greenwood

I loved Jean! When my mom and Jean got together, the laughs never stopped. I have such fond memories of going to the cottage at Nags Head and just having the best time. I wish I had more pictures of my mom, if anybody has some, id love a copy. I hope that I can meet some of my moms family as I feel like I dont know them that well, and would love to meet some of the Newbolds, Nixons, Hollowells. That was a beautiful video of Jean, brought tears to my eyes. What a special lady she was.

Turning away from you in a urinal is a sign of African respect, and you would be expected to turn away too. Not to do so is rude and a sign that you weren't brought up properly. The rule applies to SA too. If someone doesn't look directly into your eyes, but rather at the floor, that is also a sign of respect. it is considered rude to look up into a stranger's eyes.

This is the home that my great grandmother was born in. My mom used to go visit here growing up. Some of her most cherished memories are of being on this farm!

Comment on Thoughts on Peru by Bill Oviedo

Grifo in Castilian means pump or tap hence the word used as a place to fill up a gas tank. If your Spanish teacher didn't know that you might want to find another. Your observations on Peru are humorous yet insightful. Wish there was a way to stop the ignorance of the taxi driver's honking.

Hey, it only took two and a half years or so, but it looks like we finally got an answer. Thanks, Sakari! Your answer put a smile on my face today!

I'm a Finn myself and I stumbled upon your blog (not via that meal name though :D). That horror word is much easier to comprehend when it's sliced into pieces: tupla = double (they're cognates, btw) juusto = cheese hampurilais = hamburger (actually an adjective form, the noun is "hampurilainen") ateria = meal There you have it!
