oh that's so nice that your family went too!! looks like a blast! almost time for your next vacation! how are you feeling about Goofy's challenge???
It's weird for me (as an american) to hear someone is going to Cuba, I don't know anyone outside of the US and i know for a long time Americans weren't allowed to go there. It looks like a beautiful place though!! see you soon! :-)

Looks like fun!

What do you think of the Sookie Stackhouse series? I read the first 5 novels and at that point, had had enough, but I thought the first few were decent. I think I actually like the show, TrueBlood, better!
