Excellent vacation story: introduction to another atmosphere, another kind of people, different language and different way to live.

A fun light story, well worth the stars. 

Response from the author:

Thanks.  As mentioned below, this piece was written just for readers to enjoy, and I have a handful of stories like that on this site.  I largely think of myself as a writer of light comedy but don't push it because everyone's sense of humor is personal.  Glad this story connected for you.

It was a delightful read that presented real, well fleshed out characters in realistic scenarios. As good a short story as I have ever read. It satisfied, but left me wanting more.  As in all really good stories I became enamored of the main characters and wanted everything tied up in a neat little package with all issues resolved. The ending left a very pleasant taste on my tongue with the promise of total fulfillment just beyond the last paragraph.


Response from the author:

Thanks.  I just noticed this review from five years ago so apologize for only getting back to you now.  And, yeah, this is a nice, light, take-to-the-beach piece, written with no other purpose than to entertain.  Glad you enjoyed it.
