Wow. You were so brave to venture to a fantastic, historic city and dare eat the local cuisine — perhaps roam the streets and sight-see (gasp).
Um, no, sorry. I looked up heroic. I was mistaken. You are just awesome and lucky. Hope you really enjoyed it. I know I would. I would have to say anyone who pooh poohed it was masking a hint of jealousy and thought they’d cut you down a peg or two.
