Friday 5 for May 3: Continental Breakfast

1. When did you last enjoy some Asian cuisine?

Our office had a luncheon last week at Legends in the Chinese Cultural Plaza. Just the other day I had a Filipino plate lunch. None of it is very good if you are supposed to watch your health.

2. What’s something you’d like to do in South America?

Visit Machu Pichu in Peru. I don't know if you can drive up to it (probably can't) and I almost certainly will never go since travel is very expensive, especially if you are from Hawaii. You have to go northeast first to L.A. or San Diego and then travel down south to get to the continent of South America. Sounds very, very expensive.

You would think Hawaii would start marketing to South America and have a direct flight to at least one country there which could shorten the travel time and cost.

3. What’s a popular tourist thing in Europe you have very little interest in?

Waiting in a long line to see Mona Lisa in crowded conditions just to get a picture of a picture. Ugh. Waiting in a long line to see anything where you finally get there, the time is very limited or the venue is very crowded.

I hope the French government has a huge insurance policy and fire protection on this one. You can fix Notre Dame but if Mona burns up, she's gone forever!

4. Which of Australia’s strange animals do you find most fascinating or adorable?

There are so many strange animals in Australia. Koala bears come to mind as being cute and cuddly, but I would not think so. Kangaroos I'd avoid since they are known to kick with deadly force.... I guess I would like to see a big Emu bird. There we go.

5. What’s something interesting you just learned about Africa?

I can't think of anything significant right off hand. One of my Flickr acquaintances spends a lot of time in Kenya, so I get to see pictures from that region.

Questions from the Friday 5 blog.

  1. You were meant to look up something about Africa and share it so we could all be enlightened. :)

    I would totally stand in line for the Mona Lisa because I find it personally inspiring, but I'm with you in general on long lines to look at something touristy. Not for me, except for Mona.
