Well... at least in Schweinfurt, Deutschland:
Photo caption: Sunset in Sausalito: Jenny (left) and her friend Kateri spend the night on deck. Anyone new to the boat arrives, you must drink a sip of rum. "Sailor's Custom," says the 33-year old.
The German and I were photographed on her boat in Sausalito earlier this year by one of her hometown friends. This image was printed in a magazine yesterday, alongside a great article. You can use the translator with the Chrome browser to read it if you like. In case you can't see it, we are enjoying a bottle of rum in this picture.
Now both my sister Lisa and I have had our moment to shine in Germany. Although her's was a bit more dramatic: she was filmed for the nightly news when the Berlin wall came down, dancing on top of a firetruck with a drink in her hand.
Guess it runs in the family. ;)
