Back in the 90s I signed up to participate in a two week Witness for Peace delegation to Nicaragua and Guatemala. I would be flying out of Miami. Al & Linda were interested in making a road trip to Florida...so we all traveled together in my van. Al & Linda visited the Everglades and other parts of Florida while I was in Central America.
When I returned I had many stories about US involvement in Nicaragua and Guatemala, as well as about the people and cultures there. And I also mentioned how much I missed being able to get a good doughnut.
Al had noticed a topless doughnut store not far from our hotel, and he offered to take me there (Linda didn't go...it wasn't the doughnuts that were topless). I ordered two glazed doughnuts, but could only eat one. My stomach was still adjusting to being back in the US. So I asked for a bag so I could take the other doughnut with me.
The girl at the counter said I was the only person she ever waited on who asked for a doughnut "to go!"
