Lulled into a false sense of security, I placed my order. Forget a long macchiato. Play it safe, go the cafe latte. The 'barista' asks if I would like a small.

Small turns out to be Aussie large so a quick “half the milk please” was hastily added in an effort to thwart disaster.
“Certainly” she smiled going about her task with all the passion and dexterity of a 16 year old boy trying to undo his first bra.

For all of you who have dreamed of visiting Nirvana, check your travel insurance to see if you can get a refund. Do it, do it now!
