Bro Ro, be prepare with your camera at my arrival to the other Long Island bank!! I expect to arrive next week If not tsunami push back me to Connecticut shore!!! :-))) #7744922

ROLAN NARMAN July 16, 2009

You do not need to withdraw money from the bank Max! We'll stop at Fontana di Trevi on the way to Malta to get YOUR coins! Don't worry about the Tsunami either! Our boat as special wings which will keep us over the waves! It was built strong enough to conquer the waves at "Azure Window" also! #7745086

Max Aureli July 16, 2009

LOL Ro Bro

Bank: the rising ground bordering a lake, river, or sea or forming the edge of a cut or hollow!!
At lest one time I was correct with my stupid English!! :-)))

Max Aureli July 16, 2009

Prosciutto e Mozzarella is ok for you??? And some bread and a lot of wine... but I think we need a second boat!! :-)) #7745108

ROLAN NARMAN July 16, 2009

I knew what you meant Max that was obvious since we're talking about water and boat!!!! But I was joking and you did not catch that! LOL!

As far as food,you might as well add some SPAGHETTI AGLIO E OLIO and FRITTELLE DI GRANCHIO, or AHI CARPACCIO, CARCIOFO, COZZE E VONGOLE, SPIEDINI, SALSICCIA CASALINGA, of course some BISTECCA or some FILETTO ALLA SIENA! I let you choose! Don't worry about deserts! Bro Laurence has already shown us what Malta can offer! He'll take care of that! #7745178
