My theme this year will be a random road trip. The idea is to use the random geo-location generator from random.org to generate the destinations. Basically, I'll go to the random location generator and click Pick Coordinates. This will provide me with the locations for the "road trip"--provided that the location is not in the middle of the ocean or on a polar ice cap. If you play around with the locator a little, you'll probably find that about 60 - 70 % of random locations end up being precisely in one of those places. So, I'll keep clicking until I get a land location and go with it.
I am hoping this will take me to many exotic and interesting places, but I can't vouch for the authenticity of anything I come up with...I won't have a lot of time to research each destination, but I'll do my best. And, I'll probably stick around at each location for a post or two.
Last year I somehow managed to post all 31 days, but I'm feeling a little dubious that will happen this year. I think the rules technically say that there are no official rules as to how often you need to post, but should aim for at least 5 days a week, or 20 posts in the month, which is what I'm aiming for. At any rate, 20 posts in the month will be about 4 x more than my average.
So without any further ado, the first location is:
¡Bolivia! Tune in tomorrow for some comida boliviana.
In the mean time, here are some pics from Halloween.
Lots of vegan Halloween booty, including Yummy Earth Lollipops that come in flavors like Mango, Apple Tart, and Pomegranate. Lollipops have come a long way since I was a kid:
All tolled, we got about 15 groups of Halloween revelers...not bad compared to years passed.
Here's my favorite trick-or-treater:
Spooky porch...enter if you dare:
Of course, you need some friendly pumpkins to guide the way:
And some not so friendly ones:
How's this for an attitude? -->
Here's a little visitor, who snuck in on a flower and decided to stay for dinner:
He/she munched on that flower while we had chili in pumpkins...probably the spookiest photo of all:
