There is an even funnier language story, but rather than relate it, do this:
think about what you think the spanish word embarazada means, then when you meet up with your spanish speaking wife, ask her what it really means. You can guess the story from there...

I say Istanbul is the easternmost (it's only 11pm!) point in Europe, but my wife disagrees. She says parts of Russia, like Moscow, are in Europe and farther east. I say Moscow is in Asia. In any case, if you're interested in a 3-week ride from Germany to the southern coast of Turkey from about July 8th to about the 28th, let me know. Good company is valuable.
I would be so up for this as I am returning to Europe this summer for another 3-week ride. Was thinking about the England, Ireland, and Scotland this year. Kinda questioning my sanity about going to a place known for its shitty weather and um, mediocre food though. The ride east to Istanbul was for next year. Anyways, my trip and flights are already booked for September, so your timing sucks! Mine, of course, is impeccable
Looking forward to the next installments on your RR!
