Russia, Japan, or Dominican?

Viva la Revolutione!

Suz and I are leaving for the Dominican Republic tomorrow. In light of that, here I am in Cuba last year.

Cuba was Suzy's choice. And I thought it was an excellent one. It was exciting to visit a communist country, and to do so while Fidel Castro was still in power made it even more so. He won't be around forever, and with his "departure", Cuba will likely undergo some changes.

This year, as usual, Suz got her choice of vacation spots.

The two places I want to visit the most are Russia and Japan. Beaches are nice, but I want to do something different. I've always been different.

However, Suz, being normal, wants heat and relaxation, not architecture and excitement. To me, that's a little sad, but I'm not about to argue with her. In all honesty, we don't have the money to travel to Russia for a week.

As for Japan, we could make it there alright, but once we got hungry, we wouldn't be able to afford to eat. Japan is probably the only place in the world where a 16:9 plasma TV costs less than a ceasar salad.

And what will $100 U.S. buy me? An apple.

YES, that's right, one single solitary "designer" apple. Or a square watermelon. It's my choice, really.

But my dreams of going broke in Japan will have to wait a few more years. By tomorrow, I'll be lounging in the winding pool of the Ocean Blue resort in Punta Cana, where everybody takes rum showers, because it's cheaper than water.

I think you would make a tremendous dictator. You can be moody, fickle and distrustful. i don't know if distrustful is a word, but as dictator, you can demand that the dictionary be changed.

Could I be your court jester? I'd prefer to be your food tester, but I'm pretty sure I'd fail at leaving any food for you after I've tested it.

I KNOW! With those bad feet, I could push you around in a wheelchair. One big honking dictator chair with 17" mags!

And when you need to get off road, I can carry you.

It would be my pleasure!

Maybe I'm just being moody and fickle here, but come on! 17" wheels? Nuts to you. I better be riding on 22's or you're fired.

It's not that the rum showers are cheaper than water, it's just that with their lack of water treatment competence the rum is safer.

I'd love to go to Russia too! It seems like an amazing country, and I'll be doing a degree in Russian and Spanish at uni (eventually). Unfortunate you can't afford it, but Im sure you'll have a great time in the Dominican Rep.!

Well, we almost had a really great time. Okay, yeah, we definitely had fun - but it was mixed in with a lot of non-fun too!
