Rundown for the week of November 20, 1999
There are combinations that just naturally go together...peanut butter and
jelly, Abbot and Costello...but classical music and white water rafting?

As the weather starts getting colder, many of us like to do what the birds

Iguana eggs, snake blood and other delicacies...really, they're considered
delicacies...as we eat our way around the world during next week's edition
of The Savvy Traveler.
