(re: re: re: Anti Bush Message) Simon:
No problem. Both Roberta and I love politics and political discussion. I’m a bit of a news junky. The first couple of hours for me every day are spent reading the various news sources on the internet. A typical morning: The NY Times, Seattle Times, CNN, Fox News, Free Republic, Drudge Report, Wall St Journal, etc.
On this trip, we visited lots of different countries (France, UK, Hungary, Czech Republic, Austria, Germany). We saw almost no anti-american sentiment anywhere. Generally, most people seemed to be doing everything they could to make us feel welcome. Tourism is down everywhere, especially in France where american tourism is down 70%! (overall tourism was down 10%)
There were really no high-points from the trip to talk about. It was my first trip to eastern europe. I liked it better than I thought I would. The Danube was awesome. Roberta and I want to go back and bicycle it.
PS Someone reminded me earlier today of a website I did to commemorate a trip Roberta and I did last year. I had forgotten about it, but it’s kind of fun. Check it out at:
