I meet people like Norman all the time.
Nothing you can say or do, just watch and stay away from the trail of flames behind them on their way down.
but then there are some that make it, ya just never know!

"Getting Stoned with Savages: A Trip Through the Islands of Fiji and Vanuatu" - available on Amazon

Got quite a kick out of this book. Believe it was recommended to me by LaurieMar.

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

My husband and I spent one week in San Pedro, we have the bug too....but we are not like Norman, at all. And yet, we didn't feel like there were any surprises in the book(he read it too). That said, the book was funny, and definitely a good lesson in what NOT to do.

anyone in SP have a copy I could borrow.... I've been immersed in the Border Trilogy by McCarthy for probably longer than it took to write, and I need a little break!!

or could swap for "A salty Piece of Land" by buffet?

I read that book while on vacation in Cabo. When I was finished, I traded the book for a massage. I'm sure that book is still circulating around Mexico smile
