I was across the street taking pictures and saw Eric giving Jamie money and if I did not know better, I would have thought it was a drug deal.
I am enjoying myself too much and can not find the time to get the blog updated. A lot has gone on since my last update and I promise to get you stores, I have a few good ones, and some pictures. I finally broke down and bought a new camera while I was in Switzerland. I was able to talk the sales person into a 10% discount on the accessories and 5% on the camera. If I did my conversations right, it was the same price for the same camera I was looking at in Russia, but I was able to ask all the questions I wanted without a translator and ended up with a Panasonic TZ1. I will get some pictures posted so you can see the quality. The other one Jetta gave me works great, but it is just limited in functions and is very slow. Probably very fast at the time, but it is outdated, but I fell in love with digital cameras. Still not the same as film to me, but very convient and good quality. Also, I was able to get another discount since I did not have to pay VAT (tax) on it. Switzerland
I really liked the way Zurich looked and felt. It was a nice city to visit. I could easy live here.
does not have a high tax, but it is still money I saved on the camera.
Again, I know there was not much here, but I did want to let you know I was still alive and survied another birthday. One more party to host and then that will be past but it is a lot of fun having birthdays here.
I miss you all, but will be home for a day or two before heading to sea on the cruise. Take care!
