A beautiful sunset, a romantic setting along Barcelona’s waterfront, a fantastic hotel suite waiting just a few blocks away, and Mrs. Kongo. What more could a salacious simian desire? Just a great meal in one of those quaint sidewalk cafes that line the quay. It was going to be great. Right? Advertisements
And then there was Rome. Of all the places Kongo visited during his European trip last month, Rome was the city most anticipated. Kongo always felt that if you haven’t been to Rome then you really haven’t been to Europe. Not that other great cities on the continent he’d visited weren’t grand. London, Paris, Prague, Vienna, Venice, Florence, Budapest. Even Moscow. But Rome? Well, Rome is Rome.
It seems like just yesterday, but three weeks ago the Monkey visited the Greek island of Corfu in the Ionian Sea. Corfu lives up to all the images Kongo had about life on a Greek island. Corfu lies across a narrow strait from Albania.
