Starting in India: Lodging

When traveling to areas of the globe at the bottom echelons of tourism civilization, the hotel prices increase exponentially while quality decreases in tandem. The Lonely Planet normally breaks down hotels by Budget, Midrange, and Top End. There ought to be a "Shithole" category for India. In no other travel guide have I read about any city's lodging so many terrible things. Originally (and still primarily) a tool for "backpackers", the editors of the Lonely Planet usually have decent things to say about the budget accommodations. Not true for New Delhi.

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.

roof unknown

We found Flor de Cana one night in San Cristobal while hanging out with Karly. After having a few, seriously, only a few, we exited the hippie infested bar known as Le Revolucion, and arrived at our hostel only to find it locked with no response to the bell. We circled the block but there was no other entrance, until Jason and I both simultaneously had a bad idea: the roof.

just around the corner

The hostel we have been staying in for the past 3 days in the Centro Historico of Mexico City is across the street from the presidential palace and a block down from the popular Zocalo square.

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!?
