Cool! I take it the 2 thumbs-up means you liked them?

How nice! I'm sure he appreciated that comment and the fact you put his pic up too!

Oh, so that's how it's gonna be? Call me sweaty and old in the same sentence? Well, how 'bout this...."I dunno, you tell me!"
Yup, that's how it be!

You'll think I'm making this up, but after I posted that chapter and got a good look at those pictures I remembered that it was drizzling/misting a little. I remember being concerned about getting mist droplets on my camera lens when we were back by Marrakesh.
You're right, I do think you're making that up! J/K! Actually, your story is quite plausible because I DID notice that your sweat stains were more sprinkly looking than splotchy. Ok, I'm going to believe you Glenn, it was drizzling that left those marks, not your excessive moisture.

That would be an awful way to lose your points, but don't worry I won't let you lose them over that. Losing them over calling the trip reporter sweaty and old seems much more likely.

I agree. The bazaar area really feels like being in a crowded bazaar -- they've figured out how to make the crowds work for the theming!
It does. I loved that pavillion, it's gorgeous inside! It's like traveling without actually have to travel, seeing all these countries in the WS.

It was probably half me, half precipitation. I remember it being misty when we were back by Marrakesh.

I know it's been like 2 pages since I've piped in over here, so just making sure you know I'm still reading along. As for that "architecture"... er, um, well, er, that's quite impressive!

Maybe if it's wet they have fewer showings due to safety concerns?

I have a few pictures of me two weeks earlier in WS that look very similar.

It is our duty as parents to scar our children.

So, we booked it over to the American Pavilion and grabbed some floor.
It's cool you got to see them. Missed out on our trip but we thought our little ones were getting a bit antsy to sit through it.

Ahhh. I had to sing that in state male ensemble. A toughie accapella. So tough for us high school students that we messed it up in front of 700 people or so.

It comes and goes. There are many examples in trip reports here of older teens getting excited to see characters.

I love impromptu poses! Marlene really seems to be enjoying your company during this part of the trip.

It's so very pretty around China. We spent the most time visiting that area between Norway and China on our trip.

Are you talking about an actual public library, or do you call the bathroom "the library"?

Hi palofeeyore and !! Thanks for letting me know you're reading, I appreciate it.

By the way, it took me a few seconds to get your screen name. I was reading it as "pay" "low" "fee" "yore".

And to think that Pat, of all people, was the one who brought that subject into the conversation.

That was probably a wise move. The acoustics in there great for the singers, but probably also for antsy kids.

Well of course she was.

Maybe I should have said something different. "Evil"..."maniacal"..."pouty"....."surly teen".
