I'd like to extend an invitation to you to think about taking and writing about one of our Esotouric bus adventures, which roll most Saturdays out of Downtown LA and offer a unique historical perspective on the city through the lenses of social history, true crime, architecture, spirituality and rock and roll. This Saturday we offer our occasional Blood & Dumplings tour, which includes a snack from 101 Noodle Express (one of J. Gold's top 99 restaurants, though we actually discovered it before he did, which we thought was pretty cool). We've also worked with Tai Kim from Scoops to develop tour-themed gelatos for the Real Black Dahlia and Raymond Chandler tours. Check us out some time at http://www.esotouric.com
What a pleasure to add you here. I do like this site and think it will be good for all of us. I was pleased to see you've added Squid Link to your TableConversation blog that I thoroughly enjoy. Maralyn
Good morning, Barbara, and welcome to Tripatini! It's great to have you with us -- and we think you'll find our site productive as well as interesting and enjoyable.
To get the most out of Tripatini, you may want to take a moment to join several of our many other groups which you may find of particular interest, such as Media Only, IFWTWA, California, Eating/Drinking the World, Wine Tourism, India, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Mexico, our Spanish Language/Hispanic Cultures Club, and plenty of others covering many other topics and most destinations across the globe.
FYI, on your profile you'll see a green bar marked "Text Box," which you can turn into a box containing not just text but also photos and even videos about yourself, your interests, your travels, TableConversation.com, Squid Ink, and other writing/outlets.
Finally, if you would, please be so kind as to spread the word among your travel-interested friends, family, colleagues, associates, and readers. It's fast and easy to use our "INVITE" function above left on the navigation bar to enter e-mails (even your whole list at once!). If you have the chance to cover us in any of your outlets, that would be great, and if you might be interested in blogging for us on occasion rates/guidelines are available upon request.
Thanks much for joining us, Barbara; we wish you an outstanding rest of 2009 and look forward to seeing you online.
