Worldhop Trivia Part Deux:
Cassidy: Honolulu, International Dateline, and Tokyo with a celebration on the flight and in a Tokyo restaurant-complete with two birthday cakes! She was in far better shape for the in-flight celebration than the one at about 3 a.m. (our time) where she nearly went face down in the cake.
George: On elephants and walking from a Lau Tribe Village to an Aka Tribe Village in Northern Thailand. The day ended in a celebratory dance around a bamboo bonfire with the Aka women in full traditional dress, most of us swilling bad whiskey with the chief, and watching falling stars from the porch of a thatched hut.
Samantha: Bombay and Amsterdam. She was served cake and champagne aboard the seven hour flight out of India. Even at 27 hours the day wasn't long enough (we bathed and slept through most of it), and the celebration was spread over a week (dinners out at an up-end Italian place and at an American cowboy-style steak house, cake and kir royale on our house boat).
Salli: (It was also Easter Sunday!) Flight from Athens to Madrid, with a brief stop in the Rome airport. The day ended up with a dinner ordered by guessing at the Spanish dishes on the menu and cake served in our 'suite' as street sounds drifted up through the huge open windows. The desired "wild taverna dancing" had taken place in a pre-birthday bacchanal in Greece where wine glasses were upturned and played like castanets on our hands.
