There Is No Red Button

Image-Link to There Is No Red Button page A continuation of Push the Red Button, There Is No Red Button relates travel experiences where there was/is no red button to push when things go awry. Think of a tour member disappearing in an Egyptian night market, freezing under a clear night sky while star-gazing in Sedona or dealing with hordes of school children in Monet's garden in Giverny. In these situations, all you can do is wait to see how things end up.
