Going it Alone in the City
I would have loved to try the fried Bullfrog, but let's face- I would have loved to have tried everything you've eaten! You've convinced me to try chicken feet next time I go to Dim Sum. Very impressed that you went out by yourself at night to explore the city. No better way to get to know a new place. While intimidating since you didn't speak the language, it sounded exciting.

Chicken feet!
Besides your great-grandmother, you are the only person I know that could enjoy eating chicken feet! I absolutely loved your descriptions of all the food you ate!

Academy Award
You deserve a "Best Actor" award! You may have felt like a zombie on your first day, but you look just fabulous! Thanks for the first look at China!

Do you think you are enough?
Even I'm impressed with the amount of food you consumed on your first day, not to mention the ground you covered. I always recommend hitting wherever I land hard jet lag be damned, when traveling internationally. You are a poster child for this approach. Pictures are great. As always love your meal descriptions. Monica's done a wonderful job introducing you to Shanghai.

You and your Kippah
Jeff: you look great in your kippah! Of course, I still like the photo of you covered in clay! Okay -- what does hummus do to you; I like hummus and don't get a strange reaction.....

Smell of Sulphur/ Chicken Innards Mixed Grill
Only you can make a body of water that reeks of sulphur and a mixed grill made of the inside of a chicken seem wonderful & delicious. Israel does seem incredible. Glad you're having time to unwind and experience a bit of an adventure. Outstanding blog as usual. Enjoy.

Jeff -- you are just amazing! I love your descriptions -- especially of the food! I'd be fine with most of it, but you'd have to eat any octopus that happened to land on my plate!

What a Whirlwind Three Days!
Son, you do not disappoint. You've continued the family tradition of cramming into three days what most people couldn't cover in a week. Portugal looks as just charming the second go round. The Moorish influence reminds me a bit of our trip to Spain and that one castle was very " Game of Thrones"

haha..Typical Island mentality!
This is so funny and so true! The people in Sardinia are way too relaxed and couldn't be botheres....Tourist information is completely usless...Many of the people don't really speak english..and have never left the island! I was there for 9 months in Alghero and you described it brilliantly!

Thank You
Thank you, dear Jeff, for taking me with you to Malta! However, I was really looking forward to your adventure at the "Fish Lounge." We'll have to find one in the U.S.

Game of Thrones connection
I just googled Game of Thrones and the island of Malta in anticipation of your trip to Gozo and found out that the Gate to Mdina was used in one of the episodes. Now I'll have to go back and watch season 1. Looking forward to some photos of the Azure Window (back to season 1 again to see Gozo). Have fun!!

Hey - I have heard abouit those tiny nibbling fish treatments! Go for it but make sure they are not tiny piranhas! Would have loved to hear your Backstreet Boys number. Have fun!

I'm Tagging Along
Thanks, Jeff, for writing a blog about this trip. Through your blogs I get to see the world! Have fun inbetween the conference. Miss you.

Off to a great start!
I'm fascinated by island culture and Malta looks intriguing. Looks like your trip is off to a great start. Seriously, 16 year old drinking age? That should make for some interesting bar hopping stories. Weather seems beautiful. Enjoy.
