    I asked that question when I was there and they didn't comment.
    But I know another painting that was not nearly as famous sold for over $100 million recently. It was bought by a museum. And with their grants making millions of dollars in interest each year, they need to spend their money somewhere. I am sure a few museums around the world would want it. And it costs about $16 to get in to the Louvre and they attract thousands of people each and every day so it wouldn't take long to buy a few more paintings for the museum

    No worries
    Some times I like to be a jerk
    It is my way of entertaining myself when I am traveling alone

    Kathe and I had a deal in Madrid.
    I wanted to go to the wine bar and she wanted to go shopping after.
    And for me, I hate shopping more than just about anything.
    Kathe loves it.

    Walking around Lima
    It is cold here.
    But it is winter

    The airline forgot my bag so I have been borrowing clothes to wear.
    They just delivered it 2 days later.
    What I was missing more than my clothes was all the good wine from France and Spain that I had stashed.

    Well,

    I am only to page 130 and I had to let you know you have another reader and fan. I see you found a hottie. Now back to the story so I can see it unfold in real time.

    What about the car to haul it all home,was it hours of"oh look honey isn't this cute,oh my I have to have that"but I'll bet she looks pretty hot when she is trying to convince you to come shop with her.

    Actually, most of the shopping was for me because when you are traveling around the world on a motorcycle, you are not packing a lot of "hot" clothes for going out to the nightclubs

    I just got caught up on all the posts too. The first time this picture was posted I quickly looked at it and all I saw was the (2) nudes. On the responses people posted I noticed something else. It appears to me that just beyond these nudes in the red, it could be someone going down on another for a little box lunch. It could be just me but maybe this artist was including things in their art beyond the obvious. Maybe I have had to much :freaky:evil Does anyone else see this.

    I'm loving your adventures and point of views. I now know more about wine than I thought I ever would. I've never met anyone with your techniques for camping. Can't wait for more, very entertaining! It's also interesting to see you cross paths with other RTW riders that I've followed. Such a small world.

    Yes, my camping techniques push the envelope.......that is for sure.
    I was worried that I would have trouble finding places to camp in Europe (because it is illegal in many countries to camp in the wild) but it is so easy to find a good place. You just need to know how and where to look.
