Oz in the USA page 3.
I'm starting off this page with something that might interest my biker mates Rob Bellingham and Steve Fowler (Swampy). Here below are a couple of bikes on a trailer that Phil an I spotted outside McDonald's on our way home from the Hollywood Studios.
They are electric..... here is a road bike and a scrambler. Phil an I chatted to the bloke transporting them, he had just come back from giving them a demonstration, where one of his mates jumped 84 feet on the scrambler. That is a distance of 84 feet.. not 84 feet lined up...... well I think you've guest that already!
We was given a pamphlet.
After a days rest, the next trip out was to Epcot. For who that has not been or in the know! its theme is around the world.
In the ball above is a ride that takes you through the years an into the future. Here's the gang on the way up.
Phil took a few photo's on the way round but due to we was on the move they came out blurred.... an no Phil hadn't been drinking. A photo of us was taken as we went round, near to the end. We watched on the little monitor in front of us a cartoon of the future. They had very cleverly superimposed our faces on to the characters in the cartoon. When we got off they gave us the opportunity to send a email post card to ourselves.
We did an here it is......
Ok then lets go around the world... with Ozeas Fogg and his Valet Philpartout, we may be a bit quicker then 80 days. Where shell we start?
Mexico. " Hola"
Norway. " Hallo"
China. " 你好"
Can you spot me?
Outpost.... It covers Australia I think. "G'day"
Germany. "Guten Tag"
Italy. "ciao "
Morocco. " Salaam Aleikum!"
France. " bonjour"
Not a spot on the real one, you can't go up this one.
United Kingdom. "woodo"
Ahh time for a pint.....
A brilliant Scottish band.
And finally Canada. " a toss-up of hello or bonjour"
While in the Canadian gift shop a bit of hat trying went on with Jess, Richie and Sophie.
And I found a friend, I will call him Diefenbaker after the husky in the Due South TV series.
Oooooo found the Minnie cheer leaders.......
Now just before the firework display I popped to the toilet. I don't think that Americans can fit doors properly cuz I can not believe the gap in the door. While doing the obvious I waved at someone that walked by. All the toilet doors were the same.
Now for the fireworks.
Another great day out. Home again, tied but happy an to find a frog stuck on the wall by the front door.
Hello little froggie.
