The Spectacular Southwest…of Bolivia!

    0
One of the few facts I knew about Bolivia before visiting, besides the fact that it sits at an insanely high altitude, is that it is home to the largest salt flats in the world, Salar de Uyuni, which are about 4,000 square miles. A visit to the salt flats was one of the few side trips I knew I had to take this year...

The hardest way, on purpose.

    0
I love my job.I'm not saying that the way that many do, claiming they love a career because they've devoted time and energy into it and need to convince themselves it's worth it.I legitimately love what I do, why I do it, and who I do it with.I'm also a driven personality. My fatal flaw in work is that I am prone to burnout because...

Cholitas Wrestling!

    0
The slogan: Cholitas Wrestling: “Only in La Paz do you get to see the local ladies dishing out more punishment than your local bouncers on a Saturday night!”  I can’t even explain how happy this event made me.  It was pure joy.  Best $15 USD I‘ve ever spent.  (Sorry, Patrick. We WILL go back!) The ladies are fierce!  The pageantry was pure beauty.  And, I love how...

On monotony

Seven of us opted to fly to Cusco.Remote Year organized a 14-hour bus ride from La Paz for us. 14 hours? On a bus? How much are flights again?So we ate the extra $160 cost, took a one-hour flight, and spent the day exploring while everyone else was fighting the urge to stretch their legs.Worth it. 10/10 would spend extra to fly again.I noticed something...

Patagonia? More like AmazingPictureOpportunityAgonia

    0
It's either cause there's too much going on, cause the pictures are too awesome or cause I'm lazy....this post will be all pictures from Patagonia. Sure, I could tell you about arriving in Patagonia and having the cab driver blasting Celine Dion in the car, but you didn't come here for that. I could reminisce about the dance party we had at the top of...

Setting up OpenVPN on CentOS 7 using DigitalOcean

Introduction Why Bother? As should be abundantly clear from my prior writings I am about to leave on a trip for a year. During that time I’ll likely be making use of numerous public Wi-Fi access points, not to mention whatever dodgy cellular providers are available in each location I travel to. As part of my overall stance on privacy, its essential I take steps...

After four weeks living in Buenos Aires I survived, minus 1 iPhone 6S and Rhino Shield case, but with a new iPhone 6S and funky black mesh case.tl;dr - don't text in cabs.(I was in the back of a cab and the window was open just enough that a motochoto ran up on foot, stuck his...

Landing in La Paz, Bolivia

    0
Sunday night, we landed in La Paz, the highest capital city in the world: ~12,000 to ~13,500 feet above the sea.  The altitude is no joke, and many Remotes were immediately sick.  Thankfully, I’ve avoided any alto affliction BUT, Tuesday, I fell prey to the stomach sickness.   They tell you not to drink the water here; beware of street food; don’t eat the fruits, because...

Asados and Airplanes: Until We Meet Again, Argentina

    0
Every city has different sounds. In Cordoba, I wrote a blog post while listening to people sing in celebration of Holy Week outside Iglesia de los Capuchinos. In Buenos Aires, I wrote to the sounds of city traffic on Avenida Raul Scalabrini Ortiz: car horns blaring, radios blasting reggaeton as motorcycles roared past them. Now my writing soundtrack comes from a group of drummers who...

Farewell to Chiang Mai

    0
After almost four months in Chiang Mai, it’s time to move on. When I arrived, I thought I would just keep my head down, get some apps developed and then head on to the next place. I only had a modicum of success as I made a few missteps along the way. I isolated myself too much. I assumed that if I sequestered myself, I’d...

Ometepe, Nicaragua

    0
Ometepe was not my favorite place. A quiet island on a very large lake, this area is tropical and has interesting wildlife, but not much culture or liveliness to it. I would come back only with a group or for a specific activity. I'm also jaded from seeing too many lakes and volcanoes recently ;). To reduce the amount of concrete, this school was built...

10 BUENOS AIRES CAFES

    0
Although Portenos (people from Buenos Aires) have long enjoyed leisurely afternoon cortados with friends or while reading a newspaper, finding a quality brew was near impossible just a few years ago. The norm has been an overly watered down, burnt bean coffee with a somewhat rancid and unpleasant taste. At long last, baristas and a craft coffee culture have arrived to Buenos Aires with cafes...
