Yesterday was nice, but it's mostly been raining. Got caught in a couple of showers this afternoon as I was wandering around for about 3 hours trying to find my way back to the hotel. Directionally challenged should be my middle name! :) I'm sure that I was close several times but kept getting turned around even with the GPS map on my phone. Was nearly at the point of breaking down when a very nice doorman gave me directions that finally led me back to the right street. I was afraid it was going to get dark before I got back and then I'd really be in trouble.
Don't feel alone Ms. Mod. I was in Chicago a few years ago with some friends and we wanted to go to Harry Carry's. We looked and looked and didn't find it for a couple of days but we knew we were close. We asked some people for directions and they would tell us but we never could seem to find it. We finally found it...it was at the back side of the hotel we were staying in. :biggrin2:

Thanks so much for sharing your experience, zerobars. :)

(And... am I the only one hoping for a glimpse of Marsha in all of the pictures posted?)
I was hoping for the same thing. However, I never have actually seen a photo of her, so my efforts would be for not. I wouldn't know her, if I saw her. Does she look anything like her profile photo? hee-hee:hmm::nrvs:

What does King think of all the fanfare? It has to be overwhelming at times to see all those people waiting to see him or to be followed by cameras.
I think he's probably familiar with it, but may be a little overwhelmed by how large the response is--being in a country where he doesn't speak the language.
I think the response is lovely... and hopefully it makes him smile to see how far the appreciation for his work stretches.

His work is pretty endless and of course, international. How cool! It's also awesome your favorite author is getting the treatment of a rock star.

Of course, I am sure some others feel this way, but pretty jealous. King and Europe equals fantastic.

On a final note, yes, Ms. Mod. is wonderful! Thanks for sharing the stories for those who went including the Ms. Mod and Bev, loving reading about the adventures!
