The Lake maracaibo thingy was from the savage from north of the border and yes I did give the correct answer but was overruled!

Tis funny tho-oh sorry, reverting to topic(so not me!!!!).
One spends their time earning dosh to build a cosy crib-then first sign of freedom and off we go to foreign climes looking for home comforts to relax???
I agree with the other poster who said holidays are stressful times- think you can chill out more by switching off phone,fax,wifi and stay home alone with handy supply of chocolate, krug and standby number for local fire brigade......

Just back from a month long holiday in India! Was very relaxing because it was just going to another home minus the office/school/heat and of course being thoroughly pampered by parents and in-laws. We just lazed around - no getting up at unearthly hours in the morning to get to work!

So a very relaxed, much needed break. The kids loved the heavy rainfall that Bangalore experienced this year - deafening thunder and lots of lightening!
