go to Hell and enjoy Teror!:-)

I’m a lucky “survivor” after Hell, Norway & Teror, Gran Canaria… 🙂

N.B. Teror is a quaint small town of Grand Canaria island… as for Hell, Norway, its name stems from the Old Norse word “hellir”, which means “overhang” or “cliff cave”; it has a more used homonym in modern Norwegian that means “luck”… 🙂 at the Hell train station, there’s a sign:”Gods expedition”; “gods” means cargo(freight), while the old spelling of “expedition” has since become “ekspedisjon”, so “God’s Expedition” is a popular and funny reading for English speaking tourists only… last but not least: the modern Norwegian word for “hell” is “helvete” – nothing to do or in common with the Swiss… 🙂

    • merci, Doris, pero “acción de gracias” es una celebración típica estadounidense, no la tenemos en la “vieja Europa”… 🙂

      • In Mexico they do not celebrate but we know is not about turkey things is about being grateful and I know you are your whole life represents this. 🙂

  11. Or you can come back stateside and visit Hell’s Kitchen, A once poor immigrant area right next to midtown NY. After over a hundred years on being less than, it got gentrified and now holds its own with the other hoity-toity neighborhoods.

  12. “To beer or not to beer” – William Shakesbeer 😛 For your smile, I guess you would recommend to us, your readers to go to Hell and to try a bit of the Teror! ^_^

  13. The beer question is easily answered.
