Stuffed Pork Tenderloin; Enlightening travel — 6 Comments

  1. Thanks for the many incentives to travel! I am thinking it would be good if all students could take one year after college to travel the world. Maybe people would be more accepting of foreign cultures, characters, differences in general and themselves in particular.

  2. First of all, I love the tenderloin recipe. And then, can you hear me shouting? Shouting for joy that you have finally put to words what I have been thinking for years!! So many people do not understand why I would ever want to leave home, much less the USA, to travel. You stated it perfectly and I hope to copy your notes and keep them with me so that the next time I am asked, I will simply pull them out and say “a friend wrote this and I agree 110%.”

  3. The French blame one’s parents if one is rude – they say one is “mal elevé (badly raised) and assume your family didn’t teach you good manners. And I’d say the French are probably correct. 🙂

  4. I am SO with you on travel. I cannot imagine a life without it. In fact, I’m finally getting around to seeing some of the U.S. this fall…. Places like Europe, South America and Asia just had to come first. And then, of course, there’s Africa in my future…
    As for the French and rudeness – I confess to having studied French in high school, but I believe that if you just try to speak French, they will be as receptive as people anywhere are when you show respect. Thanks for your remarks, Katie!

  5. great point and I so appreciate that as an American married to an eastern European living in Mexico that travels a lot.

  6. Alexandra, in the UK they often take a gap year before college to travel the world. I agree that it’s a wonderful idea.
    Thanks, Susan. I worked rather hard on those words…trying to not be too offensive.
    Zoomie, they are absolutly correct. My little, old neighbor lady in the Vendee told me is was bon eleve… hahaha
    Toni, Africa and South America (most of it) are still on my list…. so many places….
    Shayne, that would be preaching to the choir in your cxase :-00
