The Devil Carnival in Riosucio, Colombia

Three Crazy Devils at Riosucio Devil Carnival Colombia

I wonder what madness drove the good citizens of an otherwise normal small town of deeply catholic Colombia to decide to spend one week every two years celebrating the devil. That is so strange that it just has to be witnessed and it is truly an experience. Read the rest of this entry »

Siesta! Sleeping beauties…

Siesta in Cartagena Colombia

I came across these guys and surprised them on their siesta when I was roaming the streets of Cartagena back in 2006 looking for good photo opportunities and I recon this is one! The photo really captures the essence of the siesta: Drop all you’re doing! It is 12 o’clock and it is too damn hot to be doing anything other than sleep… yeah… right here!

The three KL towers and other birds

Petronas Towers Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

I took this photo in 2004, when I briefly visited Kuala Lumpur on my way up to Nakhon Si Thammarat, in Thailand. It was rainy season and as you can see… it is building up.

Koh San Road – The beating heart of backpacking

Koh San Road - Bangkok - Thailand

Koh San Road… Bangkok… Thailand… This is the place where backpackers themselves are the attraction. Koh San Road is hated and loved by travelers as it brings out the best and the worst in the traveling culture. Either you love it or you hate it. But don’t make the mistake of not giving it a try. Koh San Rd cannot and should not be avoided. It is an experience in itself.

“Die Later” – Dancing for the freedom of Aung San Suu Kyi

Die Later 1 - Bangkok

Today I have to tell a little story of a strange and incredible backpacker.

It was in a small park, close to Koh San Road, back in 2005, I met a backpacker who was over 80 years old. He was dancing with a sign on his back saying “Die Later”. He was dancing for the freedom of Aung San Suu Kyi.
