... for many a movie and tv show. We stopped to buy cake at the cafe where Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan first met in You've got Mail. I was trying to enjoy the tour but as so often happens as a female travelling solo a family from Oklahoma had decided I needed to be adopted and the grandfather Chuck who was ex forces and a war historian was insistent in his latest mission to continue to give me a lengthy running commentary of the events of the Vietnam war.
