(That would be yesterday) I went to Epcot and had a great time. It’s interesting to do things on your own, because you have time to notice different things, things you wouldn’t otherwise notice because you’re too wrapped up in your companions or your schedules. But because I was flying solo, I was much more observant. And I also talked to a lot more people. Random strangers, from women and men to children, shop workers, cast and crew members, and others. It did help that it rained off and on all day, plus it was Monday, so it wasn’t overly crowded or busy. I think people had more time to talk.
I had a great time, it was nice to just go and wander. I spent most of my day in the World Showcase. And I Twittered some of my journey. Actually, Twittering it made me feel like I wasn’t there totally by myself, because I had “someone” to share what I saw/did with. It made my day even more enjoyable and entertaining.
Anyway, I’m not going to recap my day, but instead am going to post my Twitter account so you can read along and check out the pictures if you’re curious.
No big plans this morning/early afternoon. My conference duties start tomorrow late afternoon and then dinner plans!

Mmmm. Had baklava in Morocco. Yummm. Now on to Japan where I will eat.
You guys, I’m reading all your responses but will run into something if I try to reply to them all. Am glad you’re enjoying “our” trip
Drummers at Japan. They rocked. http://twitpic.com/3nzwp
That’s new. Just had woman ask me weather forecast. Why? I have an iPhone. Welcome to age of technology ( and weatherbug app)
Shrimp tempura udon soup for lunch. Broth was good but rest was mediocre.
Where I ate lunch. No one else around. Rain makes things quiet! http://twitpic.com/3o2n2
Had plum wine in Japan complete with plum. Bought Bri some pink kitty dishes. So cute! Now leaving Japan.
For those catching up I am at World showcase at Epcot in Orlando.
in Italy! And no worries. Glasses of wine are only 2 to 4 ounces each so not as bad as it sounds.
We got to Italy in time for dancing mime. He has a whistle though. http://twitpic.com/3o5n5
Ahaha. You can buy Riunite Lambrusco in Italy. That stuff is $5 in my local grocery store.
If this were a true #rt09 he’d drop the towel. http://twitpic.com/3o62t
Moving on to Germany. This seemed appropriate. http://twitpic.com/3o6bk
Check it. Smurfs in Germany! http://twitpic.com/3o72g
Asked random guy about wine he was drinking and he offered me a taste! Bwah. Guess I look safe.
Pretzel and german sweet wine. Pretzel was terrible. Wine is very nice.
And now diff random guy asked to have rest of my pretzel. I can’t make this stuff up y’all.
For $3.25 in Germany you can buy the gummi bears I buy at Walmart for $1
Now entering China. And again I stress that wine servings are VERY small so it’s not as impressive as it sounds.
Now in Norway. Found lefse. Childhood staple in North Dakota. http://twitpic.com/3ob7z
Have had my picture taken with three of the princesses today. Not planned but since they were there…
Best part of Norway besides lefse… Trolls! http://twitpic.com/3ocak
Am standing in line for some ride in Norway called Maelstrom. Have done no other rides at Epcot today. Wonder if I should?
Oh. My. God. Our ride broke down. Ahaha.
Breakdown was brief but highly amusing. Did skip movie at end. Thanks for the advice!
Am now in Mexico. No sangria? Wah. Love the layout of Mexico.
No wait for Mexico boat ride so here I am
This concludes the world tour part of the program. Are we all sad? Should we do it again? Lol!
