We're here.............

we're queer and we're....?

1) I don't even know the proper finish to that slogan
2) It is entirely innappropriate for this entry but it's what came to mind.

Just a quick post, out of order, since we have yet to catch up on posts from our wonderful roadtrip, but we had to let you know we have arrived safe and sound. Thanks to Mr. Xanex the flight passed in the blink of an eye. Left me feeling a bit more foggy than I would have liked. Taxi to the city center and our flat which is small, cute, clean and fairly well equipped. Without even unpacking we wandered our neighborhood a bit, took care of a few things like paying the rent, trying to open a bank account (easier said than done) looking at getting a cell phone etc.

The weather is grand, sunny, breezy and cool...I'd say about 65 degrees. It feels delightfully cold, and I will probably have to throw away half the clothes I brought :)

That's all for now. More roadtrip posts and pictures from here and there to come.
Over and out,

so glad your trip was smooth sailing. I can't wait to see some pictures. No rush- I was actually surprised you had the time to make this most.
Here's a little Irish ditty for you guys.

The Mouse on the Barroom Floor

Some Guinness was spilled on the barroom floor
when the pub was shut for the night.
Out of his hole crept a wee brown mouse
and stood in the pale moonlight.
He lapped up the frothy brew from the floor,
then back on his haunches he sat.
And all night long you could hear him roar,
'Bring on the goddam cat!'

take care "hugs all around"
