To which I replied, "Nope! Bagpipes are expensive."
With out missing a beat Colin came back with, "That's OK Aunt Brenda can buy me some in Scotland where they are cheaper, she's going there this summer. Mom can I e-mail Aunt Brenda tonight?"
So my globally nomadic children have learned two things:
- Things are usually cheaper in the country in which they are made. (Exception being coo-coo clocks which are just God-awful expensive even here in Germany! More on that later.)
- Keep track of where family/friends are from, and where they are living or visiting now. You never know when it might come in handy.
