Well, David, I am here on occasion.
I miss your wonderfully literate Trip Reports.
Still, I remain totally at a loss as to why any American would patronize a Starbucks anywhere in Europe. Perhaps you could explain that some sunny day.
I don’t drink coffee, but I’m quite literally addicted to their iced tea. I know, it’s stupid. It also gives me a short break from the pursuit of the next indulgence, a place to sit, relax, work on my pictures, send some emails, and often to eat something from a bakery that doesn’t have a sitting area.
