Petrol, Genitalia, Inner Buttocks, and Anus

Petrol in the EU is about €1.47 per liter, which is the equivalent of $8.74 per gallon. You sure as hell don't hear people bitch about it here as much as they are in the States. And it's not like there are no cars here, they're all over the damn place. You wanna drive, you gotsta pay, yo.

No dreams of moving to Italy, a place I'm now visiting for the first time. Reminds me to much of Mexico - not that I don't love Mexico, because I do, but Belgium calls much too loudly to me to return to as a home. Don't worry, I've planted the seed for that to happen.

I'm a gonna have to get S&S couplers installed on the Steamrolleur for my next visit - I simply feel naked without it and there are just too many who haven't been graced by the presence and purity of my virgin white saddle, but please don't touch - and yes I'm talking about the saddle here folks.

So you find yourself in a place with a funny looking urinal but you just can't put your finger on it? OK you silly foreigner, read this and a few of your questions will be answered. Hell, I simply enjoyed reading the first sentence:
A bidet is a low-mounted plumbing fixture or type of sink intended for washing the genitalia, inner buttocks, and anus. Originally a French word, in English bidet is pronounced /bɪˈdeɪ/ (US) or /ˈbiːdeɪ/ (UK).
Come on, "genitalia, inner buttocks, and anus" in one sentence? - you haven't had this much fun in a week, at least, and all in one blog entry!

Great title.

"I've planted the seed for that to happen." Something you need to share with us about Belgian women?

Can't wait 'til you and your white saddle are back on the streets of Mpls. Who else will take pictures of us riding our bikes?

I am looking forward to taking a bidet for a spin when I am in Europe starting Saturday. Give your undercarriage a "how's your father".

Sounds weird. When it comes to cleaning my genitalia, inner buttocks, and anus, I generally prefer intense scrubbing and polishing.

I was going to leave an interesting comment until I read Jim's. Now I can't stop laughing.
