Bois Blanc Island, International Hot Spot

This week Insel Haus has welcomed guests from Germany, Brazil, South Korea, India, Vietnam and Cheboygan. Two young men from Southeastern Michigan are in our Bunk Bedroom. They're shooting a low budget film on Bob Lo. Of course, the subject is Dracula! The producer's wife came from Guatemala. We had a beautiful guest from China in August. After one more year at U of M she will become a Civil Engineer. A physician from Argentina and a teenager from Germany watched the recent World Cup Soccer game at Insel Haus. Past guests came from Italy, Great Britain, Switzerland, Spain and Russia.

Everyone staying with us is asked to guess the most distant point on the globe from which we've had visitors. No winners. The correct answer: Mongolia!

If this were a fictional piece I'd identify one of our guests as being in the FBI's Witness Protection Program or at least a character in a Tom Clancy novel. Don't be surprised if we attract the attention of Homeland Security.

Promotion is a big part of running a business. Shelby is giving it a good shot. Shelby, if you are getting people from all over the globe, I wonder if your promoting internationally? I suppose your using the Web. Maybe magazines?
