Of course she asked what that was. I have to say that my friend has no idea of internet, computer or whatsoever concerning the modern world today. Even a mobile or a remote control is a mistery to her and a computer for her is like a TV. Except of course my laptop, and she cannot understand that this small thing is a computer and not a briefcase to carry around
I told her that we had started in Stockholm/Sweden, that my swedish blogfriend (Mrs.Lifecruiser ) had this good idea and had organized the whole thing. First I had to explain what a Blogfriend is. It would take too long to describe my description of a blogfriend. So I gave it up and went further. I told her that we are on an imaginated ship and had sailed from Stockholm to Oslo and then Waterloo etc schedule here.
The imaginated ship she could imagine, but the fact that we criss-crossed through the whole world without any logic sailing from Alaska to Canada and then to Rome and to the States she couldn't understand. Why didn't we follow the normal way and follow the geographical order as normal humans, staying on one continent, visiting everything and then going to the next ? I said that doesn't matter if we go from America to Europe and back there and then again Europe and then Canada and then, and then ... my poor friend got dizzy and I started to fancy about all countries I would visit in the whole world, when she brought me back to my seat in the Chinese restaurant.
She said : " and Mr. Gattino agrees that you would be away for such a long time "? In this moment I gave up and changed subject to something what she knew better "by the way how is Jacques ?" (her son) and enjoyed my chinese beef with noodles.
