    The food looks great – I love these plastic baslets with the red and white paper – very uncommon in Europe, they bring back memories of great fried food in the Southwestern US…

    Great photos and I could not agree with you more!! I still remember with great affection the road trips we took as a family when I grew up in the fifties in our station wagon reading burma shave in summer camping and waking up in warm sunny florida every winter leaving the cold and snow behind in Michigan ( as my dad drove through the night). Our happiest memories with our child were road trips around the world. I’ve even taken my cat on road trips! lol
