Time to explain the Gone...
Time to explain the Gone Fishing.......as one may expect, plumbing in Tj is not the greatest. Because of this, upon arriving we were told (again and again, reminded always) to NEVER, EVER flush toilet paper down the toilet. Instead, we had to place the tissue into the basket in front of us. Well, needless to say, sometimes reflex is too strong, and often time we ended up having to 'go fish' when we remembered. It was brought up slyly one night early in the trip, and we had a good laugh about it ever after...congrats to Roberta for being the only person to never fish, and to Tina for being the recipient of the award for most fishing trips!
(In case you are wondering, we found this sign in Disneyland when we went there for a day trip on the way back to Vancouver)
Visitors to the northern part...
