Did he take Cantinflas with him?

Good call; you really can't do it without him. Or the lovely schmaltz of the theme music.

On another note, which should sober any of us who remember watching it the first time through, it's 22 years since Michael Palin's 80 days trip first aired, back when A&E was an actual cultural resource on cable instead of a landfill for reality shows.

Thanks, Lance, for the plug. Cantinflas sends greetings, as does Intrepid Wife, who thanks you for linking to her website. BTW the blog is called You're Only OLD Once. Cheers from Vienna, Dick Pollak

Dick, you're more than welcome. Great blog. I wish I'd been reading right from the beginning. Sorry about the typo, though. I fixed it. Happy trails to you and Diane.
