Probably a bad choice of words on my part. I really meant places
where you feel you have no civil rights. For example, going through
Australian customs makes you feel that way... fortunately the rest of
the country makes up for that.
And then there's Canadian customs ;-) I'm always a "tourist" in
Canada now. *Never, never, never* make the mistake and say the
purpose of your visit is to "conduct a design review"! Nasty old
bitch, big enough that she could bounce even me off the ceiling, then
asks, "Are you *working* in our country" ?:-)

I love to cook with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.
