A couple of phrases I loved in your travelogue so far were Hurry and slurry and a barrel of brandy handy. ...

It was funny seeing myself quoted in the section about laundry.

A tile oven is like a furnace. I don't think anyone cooked on them or maybe you know that.

Those tile ovens were so garish, I think one could heat a house without a fire.
