You've all been marvellous, and a great joy to meet in person. Thanks!
But mainly, this is to thank the wonderful, lovely, brilliant empressvesica for everything. Thanks for letting me stay here, for escorting me around the country and for introducing me to so many great people. For all the assorted food experiences I've had - from Cuban to Mexican to the Vizier's borsht. Thanks for putting up with me when I've been tired and grumphy, for being the perfect hostess.
Thank you, hun. *smooch*
You made all the trouble getting here so worth it.
