Around the Living Room in Eighty Days

Bidding farewell to the natives of Pago Pago, I set my sights on Bora Bora, and from there to Baden Baden, Qhora Qhora, Zam Zam, and Omsk. Alas, a haboob from Hibhib buffeted my balloon willy-nilly, to either Wagga Wagga or Walla Walla.

  7. It’s okay, man. So long as they don’t drop you off on Lake Titicaca, you can still turn around. There ain’t no gettin’ out of Lake Titicaca, though. :)

  8. Or into the crater of Popocatapetl.

  9. they won’t let you out until you pronounce every syllable without a SINGLE mistake

  10. ” Would you like to fly in my beautiful balloon” ?

  12. You’d wanna hope the boopin’ didn’t turn into poopin’!

  13. NTMTOM, you have outdone even yourself!
