Chicago is like New York….Just Smaller, Colder and Cleaner (and nicer)

    0
Decided to take a long weekend back in the homestead. Back in the old stomping grounds. Back where they put pickles on their hot dogs and invert their pizza. You know the place. The place where they decided to build an above ground train system in a cold abyss. The place where they blame all their problems on a goat (ya know as opposed to...

Greece: More Than Just The Musical Your Parents Loved

    0
If the question is: Did I go to Greece for two weeks and stop in Istanbul for a day and make friends with an elephant and have my company pay for it all? Then the answer is: "Yes for the most part, but I did not make friends with an elephant."I know you are excited for me to talk about Greece...Is that the Acropolis or...

In a remote part of the world, I once heard the phrase "a picture is worth nine words". I did not believe this until I took this picture in Jamaica several years back....I think its clear what nine words this encapsulates; "Welcome to Jamaica and have a nice day....mon".When my buddy Ethan says he wants to go to Jamica and I can get a discount...

Hello 911….Yes, there is a giant man burning in the middle of the desert

    0
Yes, that's right. I couldn't stay away. I had to go back for round 3 of Burning Man. And this time....the desert won (I'm not really sure what that means...I just thought it was a good opener). Things got a little crazy this time...a little too crazy, if you know what I mean (prob not). And somehow I ended up going for a week. Yes...

Long Island (The most creatively named place since New England)

    0
I know what you're thinking...."Where the hell has this guy been? I've missed his hysterical insulting rants of my and others' cultures." Well, I've been in NYC. But I'm not here today to talk about the city, I'm here to talk about it's friendly island neighbor, Long Island. I recently had the opportunity to spend a couple days in a couple different location, Babylon (somewhere in the...

India and Amsterdam….together at last

    0
Once again, work has sent me to my most favorite place on earth. A place where the curry flows like ketchup and the tap water will give you diarrhea for weeks. No not Gary Indiana (hey yo), but India. I know that is a little vague cause India is rather large....so I went to Pune.....again. Never heard of it? It's only the 6th largest city...

Burning Man

    0
I was trying to think of a way that I could explain burning man to those non freak crazy druggy hippies out there (you know who you are), who haven't been yet.....but I don't know that it's possible. The first moment I set foot out there, I had a feeling I have never experienced before...it was just complete sensory overload (and barely any drugs were...

A visit to an Indian carnival….kind of

    0
I had the privelege? of visiting what one might call a carnival.....an Indian carnival. They had all the usual carnival activities that you would expect, a ferris wheel, a merry-go-round, etc. except they were all miniature sized and were hand operated. A man stood there and pushed the "ferris wheel" around. Wow, what a thrill.Then of course, we had the woman dancing with giant pots...
