This week, I 'cashed' in all my good luck touches AND IT WORKED!! I got a job and moving to Cleveland. Super excited about the company and position. It starts in March. Heading back up to Minnesota in the meanwhile. One thousand one hundred and sixty-nine mile drive back home and I'm starting it today. Charlotte, North Carolina has been good to me, I'm going to miss it.
I am watching the Travel Channel again. Samantha Brown is in Rome, Italy. The sites - Sistine Chapel, St Peter's Basilica, St Peter's Square, Vatican City, the Colosseum, the Arch of Constantine, the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, and the Spanish Steps. I was only there for a couple days in 2007. The weather was beautiful!! I ate gelato three times DAILY!! The hot chocolate was delicious, like melted chocolate! The pizza and pasta...MMM!! I was there during the White Night festival. All the museums were open late. Everyone was walking around. Amazing!!
memo to self: I still have to frame the picture I got there.
I am watching the Travel Channel, Anthony Bourdain is in Vietnam for No Reservations. Hanoi --> Hoi An --> Saigon. Street food, cao lau, Vietnam beer, dragon fruit, greens (morning glory), Vietnamese coffee, eggrolls, the list goes on and on. My mouth is watering! All that delicious, beautiful food! I miss it. There are lots of countries on my list of places to visit but I will be back. In the meanwhile, I am on a mission to find the best pho in my new city.
