Me Gusta Kuala Lumpur

When we left India, we arrived in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where we felt in paradise by comparison. Kuala Lumpur is clean, the people are civilized, extreme poverty is not everywhere, transportation is efficient, food is prepared in a hygienic way, the lodging is more comfortable for the same money (or less)...and basically, Kuala Lumpur offers all the amenities you need to feel pleasant.

Starting in India: Food

I love India food. The flavors, the spices, the smells. Nann bread, lamb masala, tandoori chicken. I have rarely ever been disappointed by an Indian meal. India was about to change that...

A Special Report on ZA: Part 2

Brazil v. Portugal was up next and with almost week out on the farm without television, we were feeling left out of the World Cup madness. Little did we know when we set out at 4 in the morning, sleeping in the back of the "bucky" on a mattress for an 8 hour journey across the country, what type of madness we would be encountering.

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.

An American in Lima

Contrary to common practices, this past weekend turned into an culinary exploration of America in Lima, Peru. Culinary is absolutely the wrong word, but I do like the more distinguished sound of it.

Free Weed!

We’ve been in Cusco a little over a week now. The greatest annoyance (and it is very annoying) is the countless women offering cheap massages, shady dudes offering drugs, and restaurant owners shoving their menus in your face. The level of hassle here greatly surpasses that of any other touristy town I’ve been in.

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.

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.

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.

Losing the Tongue

continued from "Holding the Tongue"...It was 20 hours to the border and I had just enough money to pay my exit fee. This meant my dinner, breakfast and lunch were leftover crackers and a bottle of water. Nigel had graciously payed my last lunch of Chinese food the day before. By the time I arrived, much later than expected, I still had another hour to travel.

a day in Bogota

Today's goal was rather epic: Be Productive. Or in other words, actually get some stuff done, as opposed to...whatever we've been doing (though to our credit, we did find a nice apartment, for cheap, which is no small feat).

paranoia

Phew. Almost thought I lost the bus there. I now have extreme paranoia for missing buses, planes, what have you. It most likely is the product of missing, usually by sleeping though, departures in the past. Once I was 10 feet from the gate at Austin-Bergstrom and dozed off just before the boarding call only to awake 45 minutes later no plane in sight.

random Brazilian differences

Often while traveling, I enjoy noting the differences between the way life functions in the country or city I am visiting compared to back home. Here is a collection of various things I've noticed over the past few months in Brasil.

the "tourist bus"

Only once, in Dublin, Ireland, have I boarded a "tourist bus", but my couch surfing host suggested it as a good way to see most of the city of Salvador since he was busy working. For U$15, Salvador Bus is cheaper than cabs and buses between the spread out metropolis.

service without a smile

If you have ever traveled outside the United States, you always miss this one thing we Americans pride ourselves upon: Service. Until a few weeks ago when we arrived in Brasil, this thing called service has been more or less non-existent. Even with a fake smile, nothing really compares to the culture of service we have created in the U.S. Here in Rio de Janeiro we have however been re-introduced to quality in the restaurant, both in food and help. But before I write that story, here's one from a few months ago while traveling in Panama.

it's time to go

Now we need to leave, for real this time. The plan over the weekend was to celebrate our departure of Nicaragua this morning, but today I feel like I spent the last 48 hours in Vegas on a whirlwind tour of food, booze, and fun when I passed by the local casino (i.e. store full of slot machines).

Random in Oaxaca

Pigeons tried to eat my nuts today. Peanuts. I should guard those more carefully. They might have tried to drink my Dos XX also, but I grabbed it first as the 3 of them attacked my table on the Zocalo from out of nowhere. I spawned curse words at them which normally wouldn't receive any looks in a foreign country, but this place is full of tourists including the retired American couple next to me. Oops.

holy mole

I'm not a fan. I'll admit it. I always liked the chicken mole burrito (second to the potato burrito of course) at Big City, but apparently thats not real MOLE. What is mole? Chocolate. Not the sweet Hershey's kind, the bitter stuff. We ate this first at a restaurant fancily named Zandunga our first day in Oaxaca, and for the rest of the time I attempted to avoid it and failed several more times:

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...
