persephone hits the road


the rollerbag has been dragged out of the basement, the bedroom floor is a mess, covered with clothes, adaptor plugs, z-packs and backpacks

tomorrow my husband, daughter and i head out of town for 8 days.......and internet access permitting, i hope to provide some interesting posts from the road~

(a hint on our destination -- it figures largely in a song composed by andrew lloyd webber and tim rice ;-)

thanks, dear friends, and see you on the other side of the equator!

  6. Autumn in Baires, that's what I call perfection!
    Eat pleanty of lomito, participate in some kind of asado (to be had with lots of chimichurri) and to replenish your energy during tango marathons in neighborhood milongas, do as the Argentines do: drink Fernet & Coke.

    Love the anticipation of travel, messy floor and all. How exciting!!

    Buon viaggio and please please please PHOTOS!!!

  10. Please, amanda; don't hit the road too hard! I mean, what has it ever done to you?

    Musical pair. You're going to a cat house, as per Cats. Oh no; words were by T.S. Eliot. Perhaps Jerusalem as in Jesus Christ, Superstar. Awfully dangerous to be going there at this time. We went 20 years ago, and it was plenty dangerous enough back then, when things were calm.

    Somebody suggested Argentina. Sounds good. What sorts of things do you expect to unearth down there? Do you suspect Persephone lives there, when she's not living in Greece?
