Disneyworld of Wine

The fabulous Nursefusion and I just got back from a free weekend in the lovely Napa Valley. As guests of her office, the trip was a bit more structured and corporate than either of us truly are. It's interesting to experience how the upper middle class defines luxury. I'm always amazed by other people's aesthetic. We're hoping to plan a trip back that involves more bikes, smaller vineyards and authentic experiences. But, even with all of the fat old men golfers in Hawaiian shirts, I had a terrific time.

And I'm lucky we got there at all, what with both of us being singled out at two airports. We were puffed, searched, swabbed and checked luggage inspected. Hope they enjoyed the dirty underwear...

I feel safe!
