India and Amsterdam….together at last

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

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...

For the past four centuries, Indian tourism has had a shadow cast over it by one building and four syllables;TheTajMa--halFirst thing to say, it was 112 degrees. Yes, one hundred and fuckin twelve degrees...And that was in Celsius. To tell you the truth, I felt like overall it looked more impressive from a distance than up close.It looked much, much smaller when I got up...

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...

Well, I am having so much fun here in India, that I have decided to stay an extra week. Sorry to those waiting anxiously to see me. I will tell you, its not cause of the office food...I don't have a lot of new interesting pictures because I have been working 14 hours a day, which is why I'm paid the big bucks. I will,...

India explained

    0
India can be very confusing to a first time westerner; so full of magical sights, smells and cows. To help this theoretical first time India traveler, I have compiled a list of some things that will help to understand the culture, climate and driving rules, to avoid death.Cars will not stop for pedestrians (or other cars). It may seem as if they are ignoring lane...

Fans, I have heard you, and I am answering the call. I will be starting this blog (if that whats you call it....I prefer ramblings) back up and post every time I go to a new and interesting place. I have missed posting on some pretty cool places since the middle east (Jamaica, Burning Man, Switzerland, Vegas, Breckenridge, Tahoe, Mexico), so let me sum all...

Time is running out

I come back to the States in less than a week (I know you're all very excited to see me).The last few days I have spent in Jerusalem. Most of my time was spent in the old city, which is this extremely confusing maze of alleyways that is completely walled in. Most of the alleys our filled with shops. I'd say there around two thousand...

In memory of Tom Brady (Is that pessimistic?)

If you have any spare time, you should check out Jordan.In Wadi Rum we went off road through the desert for an entire day. Our tour guide Ali (Everyone I have met in Arab countries have been name Muhammad, Achmed, or Ali) was hilarious, but pretty crazy behind the wheel. He was flying up and down sand dunes, weaving in and out of rock, and...
