A popular activity for long haul travellers is to talk about what is going to be the first thing they are going to do when they get home. Common answers are take a hot shower, throw toliet paper in the toliet(!), stay in a cozy bed for 24 hours, drive a car (try not driving for a couple months and see how you feel), and eat. Eating is often people's most enthusiastic response. Nights upon nights have been passed talking about chips with salsa, real pizza, or pickles. The big foods that have been missing for me are cheese and cereal (not together of course (although...)).

Well, I ask you: what would you do? What is the first thing you would do after being away for an extended period. Any food that is particularly American that you think other countries might not have? Often it takes actually going away to realize what you miss most. So for those of you who have been holding down the fort, use your imagination.

Hey Hon. Son #2. You're one of the best travel writers I've read. I remember being broke in Amsterdam and fantasizing chocolate covered strawberries or something like that. There was some kind of lemon sugar involved too. Much love to you. Robin

I always liked coming home and taking a long hot bath. I have never done that much when traveling.

Well, what would i do? or what did i do? Everytime returning for me has brought excitement about washing my hands in hot water. Maybe even more so this time with that parasite you know about. haha. But, this time about food, first thing i made myself was a caprese! First order i made in a restuarant was a salmon steak. And sushi is on my soon to do list. Biggest battle, jet lag. Today, slept 5 am to 11:30. twice slept till 4 pm.
