You make the call and tell your agent, "I want to go somewhere that is nice and ancient." She asks what you hand in mind--a cruise, a country, or somewhere with good wine? "I don't care," is what you say, "As long as you make it happen today." She calls you up and hour later and tells you that you're going to need a translator. "Where am I going?" you ask with a smile. "Somewhere in Greece, on a beautiful isle?" Your travel agent clears her throat, ready to speak. "On your salary? Nope. You're going to Mexico and you leave in a week."
