First, I¹d like to say ³Happy Easter² to everyone who celebrated Easter
today and ³Good Pesach² to everyone who celebrated Passover this past
Second, thanks to everyone who responded to my message, and for greetings
from different places. It¹s good to experience belonging to such a broad
³family² of people with a common interest.
@John: since Colombian coffee is my favourite ³ordinary² variety of coffee,
your guess of Bogota is by far the best wrong answer. :-) Seriously, I¹d
risk the drug cartels or earthquakes or anything else they can threaten,
just for the experience of drinking a cup (or many!) of Colombian coffee
right there under the Colombian sun. But this is a family trip to spend
Easter together, and they¹d take it badly if I announced that I¹d rather be
in South America on a coffee plantation! At least I get the compensation
of drinking really well-made espresso at prices that mean I can afford **a
lot** of espresso without being impoverished. I could get used to this,
even allowing for the fact that we apparently brought dreary British weather
along with us ...
@Richard: you have no idea how tempting that sounds to me!
