Corfu friggin NEW YORK!!! I love Corfu. Well, I probably don't love the city, but I love our host Andy and his friend Daniel. We just went to SIX FLAGS amusement park iwhich is 4 minutes away. Danny is a supervisor there even though he's only 19 years old. He's been there for 5 years and hooked us up with free tickets and free food. Another friend of Andy hooked us up with Coffee and pastries within minutes of being in the park. Yeah, I was on cloud 9. This time we got there before the park opened and along with another hundred people or so we waited for the go ahead to run to the first ride.

Warner Bros. characters like Bugs and Daffy came out and sang and danced before the park opened. The MC was this one dude in a tuxedo who talked to the crowd and got them excited. These friggin jock assholes were making fun of him because isn't that what fuckin close minded assholes do. Granted, the employed singer/dancer was an easy target, but at least he's doing something creative.

Anger aside, I quickly focused on the task at hand and that was the marquee roller coaster "SUPERMAN RIDE OF STEEL".
HEIGHT: 208 FT
FIRST DROP: 205 FT
ANGLE OF FIRST DROP: 70 degrees
LENGTH: 5350 FT
TOP SPEED: 75 MPH
G-FORCE: ZERO G'S ON HILLS
SECONDS OF WEIGHTLESSNESS: 5-7 SECONDS ON FIRST HILL
(Yes, we bought a picture and it has the stats on the back.)

We rode the man of steel 3 times and my back is still a bit sore from the speed and ferociousness of it all. Then it was off to the water park and the TORNADO. How to describe the Tornado?? This huge CEMENT Mixer that you get shot into and it's just amazing!!

I should back track to yesterday. We got to CORFU around 7PM and had brought some veggies to cook. I cut up all the veggies and asked if I could play before we cooked out. This way I wouldn't have to worry about having food come up whilst singing. After I finished up, we went straight for the BBQ. I took over the cooking duties and did what I love to do and that's cook and eat of course!! The mosquitos started swarming. News of me being there must have spread in the mosquito community.

I went inside to eat and watched Dane Cook on DVD. He's funny. I like him. Andy said there was a bonfire in his backyard and asked us to join him. I didn't want to be rude and seem like a loner, so I went out and I'm glad I did. That's where I found out about 6 flags and also the smores. The fire was huge. I like FIRE!! Shoooootzzz We're almost to Syracuse and I need to navigate. Be well.
Peace, mike park
