    Exactly the opposite was the case in Germany. I couldn't leave my hotel room without running into at least a couple of mid range 7s, and even the occasional 8 or 9.
    Really? I always hear about how beautiful and elegant French women are.

    Re: Would You Take a Free Trip to Paris?

    Yeah, sure. It's sort of middling on my list of remaining places in Europe I haven't spent time yet. It's kind of like the feeling I have about New Orleans. I feel like I should see it, but there's always something else I want to see more.

    But free? Yeah, I'd go for that. As long as I don't have to do some kind of stupid tour bus crap. Just drop me there and leave me alone.

    That's honestly what I thought going in as well.

    When you think of German women, you think of some brawny "Helga" type who will kick your ass while screaming at you. French, on the other hand, is supposed to be the "language of love," or some such nonsense.

    In my experience, at least, it was pretty much the opposite. German women were gorgeous, and the French variety barely left an impression at all.

    It's probably because it's an abrupt-sounding language that people would expect German women to look like that.

    If they've got an ass that can literally stop traffic, they can bark all they want.

    Seriously, I actually had it happen a couple of times. Some girl would come sauntering through the interchange, and literally every guy's head would swivel to follow her. I think we might've actually missed a light change at one point. lol

    I can't think of any reason why I'd want to go to Paris.

    Maybe if it was all expenses paid and instead of going through all the hassle of traveling there I could instantly teleport there and back I'd do it just out of curiosity and for free stuff.

    I'll be honest. This is just an added incentive to go there.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    How'd you pick that?
    We don't normally travel in Feb or early March. So we wanted to go to some place that we haven't been that's warm. We seriously considered going to head to the south pacific and start out in Bora Bora and hit a couple other French Polynesian islands. But we found out that it's typhoon season and it rains in feet, not inches. So obviously that wouldn't be prudent.

    My wife and I happened to see a National Geographic program on Argentina. It was really fasinating. Thus we started planning this trip about a year ago. We'll start our little journey in Buenos Aries...and trek down to Ushuaia. As far as I know, there is no city more south anyplace on the globe.

    By the way, it's summer there. The daily high temps should be in the low 80s in Buenos Aries and in the mid 50s in Ushuaia. We've booked a trip to go to an area in Ushuaia that is a reserve of sorts that will allow us to walk along ocean beach area among penguins and get close range to a seal habitat. And we're hoping to see whales...somewhere between Buenos Aries and Ushuaia.

    A plus for us is that my wife is fluent in Spanish...although the language (we're told) is Spanish with a bit of Italian mixed in. Now she does speak a little Italian, too. So that'll be helpful. She speaks a little French and even a tiny bit Chinese, strangely enough. She went to China in her early teens and picked up a little bit of the language.

    Yep, she has a gift for languages. I took two years of Spanish in college. $10,000 and two years later all I could say is "Taco Bell".

    Check it out on the web.

    Thanks

    Now that sounds like a trip we would like to go on. Warm weather and beaches.
