Absolutely ! It's fun to read all the accounts. It was so quiet for awhile, I figured everyone had such a great time they just stayed in Portugal, either that or the auction had gotten WAY out of hand and everyone was in the slammer! ;-) thanks for the descriptions...I had to pass on Portugal this year, because we are going to Kenya in November! (Tough choice!). Zoo-sponsored trip, strictly wildlife-watching at Masai-Mara and Samburu parks. Can't wait...I may have to bore you with MY trip experiences, just to make up for the envy of those who went to Portugal. Gail G.
