I am already here. I would see Mount Blanc almost every day during my walk. I found a Mexican restaurant here. DON'T EAT THERE!

(Chuckle).

I recall seeing a Mexican restaurant in Paris, 1990 or so.

Even then, it was a prix fixe of something that worked out to fifty bucks (in old, still-worth-something-dollar days). My friend at whose apartment we were staying said, "it is vile, by any standard."

Probably not enough people from Mexico (or Texas) to cook the food from Mexico.

Re: The next POA fly in adventure

Uh. Skiing across an avalanche field. Pretty, but someone else can do that.
Uh. Formation in wing chutes. Cute, but get the draft can collapse half your wing....no, I don't think so.

Pretty though.

I think I basically spent $40 for enchiladas that were crap, even by Taco Bell standards they were crap. The thing is a lot of people were eating there and I must admit the food looked good. Just had no flavor. Chinese food here is great as is the pizza. It is real pizza not that crap NY stuff (had to say that)! By real pizza I mean Naples style and yes eggs on it are normal and original. But I opt for the no egg variety.

Re: The next POA fly in adventure

Floating along in ground effect skimming the surface of a mountain doesn't do it for me, sorry. I can go faster on the ground and fly higher any day of the week.

That said, doing most anything in those mountains looks like a glorious experience. What beautiful scenery!
