A meander around the world of my life (edible, mostly).

Botswana Bum

Hello from Maun, Botswana! We're going on to the Okavango Delta tomorrow in small canoes which is supposed to have clear, amazing water you can drink from. Can't say too much since I'd rather be outside in the sandy plains, and of course internet in the bush here is rather pricey.

Conversation with a nice gentleman at the Flying Pig Hostel in Amsterdam:

Me: So where are you from?
Him: Florida
Me: Been here long?
Him: About a week and a half.
Me: Oh wow. Hey listen, I'm going to go take a shower now, see you soon.
Him: Let me know if you find them.
Me: You.. haven't taken a shower since you've been here?
Him: Nope.
Me: !!!

London Town

Here I am in London eating at a posh cafe. Well, it's not really all that posh, but there are nice flowers and it's air conditioned which is good enough for me.

It Begins!

The trip of a lifetime has started. I just arrived in NYC today, and I'm sitting at JFK waiting for my flight to London to take off. Virgin Atlantic seems like a cool airline, and I tried to get into their Lounge. Didn't work, it's molto expensivo to fly Upper Class and enjoy their Lounge.

HOWEVER, I found that the Swiss Lounge has free wireless! Yay, now you can read this post sent at an ungodly hour. The airport is crowded, swarming with people from all over. Just like New York, it's an eclectic mix of foreigners and hipsters, who may or may not have a clue as to what's going on around them. It reminds me of the guy who drove me to the airport in a SuperShuttle - apparently, going faster is better. You think taxis are quick? This guy was passing taxis like a Mexican carnival ride.

Well, have to wrap up quick since I need to go through security.

Meet you on the other side,
