Entertained? I am relieved you haven´t chosen any of the above adjectives. Or something worse...

Ya know after 30 years in New Orleans - the strangeness and entertainment value of folks in Kansas City has not yet worn off(going on four years).

I have given up trying - ta teach em to talk rite.

heh heh heh - and the winters haven't wore me down yet either.

Travel broadens the mind - they love their silly lakes/ Ozarks - when they have the beautiful tall grass prairie all around.

Oh, dear. Well, maybe they only killed the obnoxious sailors, the ones who made snarky remarks while they were being rescued. I surmise that a few handsome Spaniards must have been kept alive, for I have some absolutely stunning male cousins on my mother's side....all with thick dark hair, that has turned silver now...

I'm sure the flip side of that works for the gringo women as well (so I don't look like a total pig).

I vacationed in CR last spring and learned that along the Pacific coast resort areas there is a lot of prostitution. And, yes the young Ticas are beautiful, charming, and impoverished, and you cannot blame them, I suppose, for gazing with $$$ in their eyes at the "rich" gringos.

Still, this atmosphere would not be attractive to me if I were moving there with my spousal unit.
