A Special Report on ZA: Part 1

Africa is lost in many respects to the world. For many, literally they get lost looking for it on a map. For others, its a continent doomed to demise. For few, its the next new thing. I couldn't even begin to write an deserving blog of Africa, specifically South Africa, our home for nearly the past 2 months. While we have traveled very little in terms of places, we've experienced much more in terms of culture: life, death, happiness, sadness, hope, fear.

a weekday getaway: Villa de Leyva

continued from "a weekday getaway: Tunja"...With buses and Tunja having taken up most of our day, we arrived Wednesday evening in Villa de Leyva, a small colonial town turned national monument, and one of the nicest colonial towns I've seen.

Belem to Venezuela, Part 2

Having already visited Manaus, I knew it was hot, muggy, and not really full of excitement. We were interviewed on the street one night by a few school girls about why we were here, did we like it, etc. I kept my mouth shut to be nice while Alex, who actually liked the city, gave the girls an A for their assignment. I stayed inside most of the 3 recovery days, but one afternoon was spent visiting The Zoo.

Granada (The Second Time)

Granada for me has always been one of those places that has draw. Yes, I like sitting on the beach soaking up the rays. Yes, I like the life of knowing a great number of people in the town that you live in, but a part of me has always been drawn to cities and as such Granada fills that void that cannot be filled by random beach towns and surfers. While not a big city, it has an incredible colonial feel to it that I can personally walk around and just enjoy for hours on end.

My Friend the Lizard

So as I sat alone in the middle of the jungle in El Panchan, I contemplated all the interesting and fearsome creatures that lurked not more than a a few feet away in the inky blackness that consumed all light from my dying flashlight...
