Amanda, Nic (Amanda's younger brother), and I bus, subway, and ferry
to Lamma Island as today's main attraction. No llamas (that we see),
but we do find a great trail between the 2 ports. There are caves dug
by Japan for kamikaze boat launches, a herb garden run by former
kitchen designers, all kinds of sea creatures in tanks ready for
cooking in snacks, and, to Amanda's delight, the amazing Bookworm
Cafe. Ever since a guidebook said "peace, love, and tofu" in its
description, Amanda's been all about getting here.
And with good reason: my veggie pizza's tasty and complete with fake ham. A few shelves of used books are as close as it gets to the bookworm part, but it's a worthwhile highlight to our island jaunt.
Amanda's caught the fever I had a few days ago, so we're home early. Note to self: don't buy DVDs for <$2 without checking everything about them twice. Especially subtitles: "Volver" is the 2nd I bought that's useless to me because the captions are from a totally different movie. Doh!
