Then and Now

If you'd asked anyone 26 months ago where I would be today, Colombia it would not be. If you had asked me 2 years and 2 months ago where I would be today, Asia, would be the best guess. In October 2008, I would not be able to tell you much about where I was going to be, who I had become, what I was going to do next. But, I would be able to tell you to not be surprised, anything really could happen, right?

This is Bogotá

For the past 6 months I experienced the joys and nots of living in Bogotá. A tribute to what this trip has become, Bogotá was an expected series of changes, coincidences: life.

bar hopping in Medellín: a photo blog

Medellín has gone from being known as one of the most dangerous cities in the world, the “drug capital”, and the “murder capital”, to being one of the safest cities in Latin American in a ridiculously short time. Today it’s one of the most popular and heavily hyped cities in Colombia among tourists. Four and half months in Bogota and all we ever heard from other travelers was of the magical land called “Medellín”. So our first night there, we decided to put the town to the test with a night of bar hopping.

growing

Growing older is only fun up until a certain age. As kids we quite enjoy it, why not? Regalos, cake, friends, clowns, etc. But even as we enter our teenage years we have learning how to drive, later curfews, and graduating from high school to look forward to. Past that, its 18, becoming a real adult and then...breaking the teenage barrier of 20.

adrenaline is crazy...

A couple weeks ago, our crazy Finland friend Tom came to visit. Of the many stupid, weird things Tom says or questions he asks, the only one I remember is whether or not I had ever been mugged. If you believe in jinxes, blame Tom for the following experience...

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.

My Carnaval, Not Everyones

The closest thing I can think of to relate what Carnaval (in Portuguese, everywhere else, Carnival) here in Rio de Janeiro was for me like is to go back to my small town semi-roots: "street dance". If you are unfamiliar with the term, "block party" might be more adequate, but I cannot imagine many of these go on these days with all the laws regarding underage drinking, liability litigation, etc.

the sides of Isla Carenero

I woke up this morning planning to hit the ocean in scuba gear, under the water with the fishies. But at 8am, yes I woke up this early, the skies were completely overcasted from the rains the night before still so I returned to my top bunk. I don't like the top bunk but it was cooler, fans blowing all night. I actually used my sheet.

firsts in Guatemala

the following blog is a mish-mash of fun, excitement, boredom, but most importantly random events that either deserved their own blog (and got one) or those that did not. some of these stories were written weeks ago and never published, others i will try to make up (and remember) as i go along. the central idea is first evers, either for me, for us, or for them. enjoy...

Hope: In a Coffee Bean

Over the weekend Jason and I visited a local coffee finca called Nueva Alianza about 2 hours outside of Xela. Matty, our Canadian hippie friend and his family, along with a few others from our school and around also toured. He posted a great blog about the history and struggle the locals went through to live a quality life. So instead of reinventing the story, here is our first guest column from Matty...

holiday number dos

Might as well be a holiday. Jason's birthday that is. We spend more, drink more, eat more on our cumpleanos (birthdays) than any other legitimate holiday including New Years. This past Friday was no exception.

sensual drinks and succulent eats

rated: PG-13 for strong use of sensuality embellished to zero degree.guidebooks, stupid tourists, hippies and the like say Belize is "expensive"...not that we haven't blown a wad of cash here, that diving stuff isn't cheap, but its not as brutal on the bank account as it's made out to be. it's up to the traveler what to pay in the end, $10/night hotels are possible as are $50. free wireless internet can be found or paid for at $7/hour. but enough of that, let's talk about the good stuff, food and booze...

Ciudad de México

So here we sit atop a five story colonial style hostel in the oldest part of Mexico City. For three days now, I have been pondering the church next door and wondering if I just drank too much last night or if it really is leaning to the right!?
