Nairobi Matatu Culture

Nairobi Matatu Culture

Nairobi Matatu Culture. Feb 26 It was 09:00 when I woke up.  Juliette woke up as well.  She told me that she had, “…so much fun last night.”  Awesome! Juliette asked me if I went to church.  I told her I am an atheist.  She asked me if I pray to God.  I told her that I do not believe in God.  The extremely confused look that she gave me was pretty incredible.  She just looked at me with really...

Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona to Palomino – Sandy Spots

Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona to Palomino – Sandy Spots Aug 5 Waking up in a hammock for two mornings in a row will give you sore shoulders.  It sure saves money to sleep that way though.  And saving money is necessary right now…  I ended up in this park with about $15 to my name because we were in such a hurry to catch our boat a couple of days ago that my hung over mind lost the ATM thoughts...

New Gringo King

Popayán – Colombia’s New Gringo King

July 4 This is getting out of control, but it is as much fun as I could possibly be having.  Colombia has a New Gringo King!  I am on a hot streak that is so awesome that I nearly burn things that I sit on… I woke up in a lot of dog hair from the shaggy creature that lives in the house of my friend Glory.  Actually, Glory woke me up as she was on her phone all morning...

Popayán: My Crazy Sex Life

Popayán: My Crazy Sex Life

Popayán: My Crazy Sex Life. July 3. I have found the source.  You know that ideology you have in your head about beautiful Latin-American women and you have a vague idea of where they are from but you can not pin-point the place?  Well, it turns out that place is Colombia.  It is crazy out there.  The skinny ones are pretty.  The chubby ones are pretty.  If you like shopping, Colombia is two weeks before Christmas.  Welcome to my crazy...

Rio de Janeiro Botafogo vs Flamengo

Rio de Janeiro Botafogo vs Flamengo

Rio de Janeiro Botafogo vs Flamengo. March 9. It was a lot of work to get Irmante moving today, as we did not get home until 6am, and the party was to start at 9am and go until 3pm.  The Brazilians know how to party.  They set alarm clocks to be able to get up in the mornings to party in the streets.  There were to be 500,000 people at the Carnaval Monobloco Finale party and I was not missing...

And then we rented a in Rio and I was behind the wheel. Your nerves are tested immediately when you have not really driven much in 8 years and suddenly you have to learn how to drive through 6.3 million people in three lanes of highway with four or five lanes of cars. That is a test...
We got ourselves to Petrópolis, a cobblestone city about two hours from Rio. I broke a lot of traffic rules and I made one way streets work backwards for me when I needed them and no one was coming. Suspecting other cars were honking their horns at me to heed their warnings. I knew what I was navigating myself through.
This was a nice cathedral that we seen there....
Petrópolis, Brasil.

Driving in Rio de Janeiro to Petrópolis

Driving in Rio de Janeiro to Petrópolis. March 6. We rented a car today in Rio de Janeiro.  The idea of driving in Rio, seemed terrifying, but also an adventure… It turns out that one person in your group needs all of, a) passport, b) licence, c) credit card.  There were four of us, together and two of us had forgotten our passports and the other two had forgotten their licences.  We could not mix and match, so we had...

Rio Carnaval Party Time: Rio de Janeiro

Rio Carnaval Party Time: Rio de Janeiro

Rio Carnaval Party Time: Rio de Janeiro. March 3. The Rio Carnaval Party is totally insane.  Today I had to rally the troops of my group as they were not motivated to party.  There were some that wanted to go to the beach, but I wanted to go to the Sergeant Pepper bloco party, that was a samba band that played only Beatles cover songs.  I put on a bit of pressure and nine of us went to Parque do...

Rio de Janeiro Carnaval

Learning Rio de Janeiro Carnaval

March 2. Rio de Janeiro Carnaval. After a late start, Csilla, Cash, Irmante and I got down the hill to meet Scottie, Shanna, and Marie.  It turns out that Christine is Marie.  I blew that.  We went and found a blocko party and a band was on a tall trailer, and they were called New Kids on the Blocko.  They played New Kids on the Block, Spice Girls, N-Sync, and Backstreet Boys.  The music was terrible, but the party was...
