A Frog and a Coconut Tree



I just couldn't resist. This is cultural enlightenment for all my readers who have never heard of Jimmy Buffett. He's a singer that relies on cheesey Caribbean references but this is an example where it works. You can't go wrong with steel pan playing Muppets. And for Cubano, this is the very best kind of kitsch.

Hey RCY--

This is Grant Lingel, and I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed your site! I bounced into Mexico right after school, came back to New York, and started collating travel stories at www.vagabondstory.com. If you'd like to read or add to it, it'd be great to see you!

Best Wishes,

GL

Cubano, de nada.

Thanks for your comment! We were actually thinking about bringing some Canadian paraphernalia to kids, but books sound like a better idea. Since this is an around the world trip, it may be heard to carry them for so long. Great post... I'm a sucker for anything Beatles related... and pastries too for that matter.

Thanks for dropping by, I think you meant to leave this for the next post on Freestyle Music Park.

I'm so media ignorant that even though I knew that song, I had no idea that was Jimmy Buffet. An all-amphibian band. Love it! will now have it in my head for days, and I don't mind a bit!

thanks!

Hey Eileen, I'm glad I'm not the only one with this tune running through my head!
