Snow glorious snow
Yes, I know that it's terribly cliche to be the little African boy who delights in seeing snow for the first time but dammit, I loved experiencing snow for the first time. In fact, I wrote an entire blog about the joy of snow. I'm proud to report that even though I was out in a blizzard today I totally still ♥ snow!!

Well you can't come to Nevada and not gamble at least a little! I had never played poker against another human before so joining a home game, coming in 3rd and winning $5 was a great experience. I don't think playing Texas Hold 'em on my phone will ever be good enough again. It's been the weirdest thing, I've had exceptionally good fortune throughout this trip. I've never won a lucky draw or a raffle in my life and yet here I won a $25 restaurant voucher at the Reno Wine Walk! How awesome is that?! Apparently in America I'm a winner!
Pissing on the Germans
Once long ago I blogged about Pastor Steve and his hatred for German men too wussified to pee standing upright. Turns out he wasn't talking crazy for once, ze Germans really do have a major bug up their asses about men standing up to pee. Now much as I hate agreeing with Pastor Steve on anything, I knew that I just had to pee standing up in Germany if the opportunity ever presented itself. Since I flew to the US via Frankfurt I had my chance and I utilized it fully!
|Yes that is a real German bathroom sticker.|
My trip to the US of A has been one great culinary adventure. In America the portions are as huge as they are deliciously bad for your arteries. I believe the KFC doubledown sandwich personifies the wonderful madness that is American food and I would have created a Bucket List just so I could put this magical chicken creation on it!
|America! Fuck Yeah!!|
