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! I don’t care if it is in the middle of the street! I am ready to chill out…

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. This gave the photo a fantastic atmosphere. Like in a movie… and something bad is about to happen. When it rains in Kuala Lumpur… it is not pretending to throw a few drops… it IS seriously raining.

This is the party center of the universe!

Tu Candela Bar in Cartagena de Indias

Photo from Caribenet.com

Do you remember the best party you have ever been to? The party where nobody was sitting. The music was pumping. The music had Rhythm. The type that is so easy to dance to. The music that everybody loves. The air was warm and humid from the sweat… and the people…. the people they are just smiling and laughing… dancing. Everybody is having the time of their life. Those moments don’t come every weekend. Maybe only once every 2-3 years… maybe only once in a lifetime. Well, there is a place where that party goes on every night and that is “Tu Candela” in Cartagena, Colombia.

Colombia – a risky destination (? or !)

The butchers of Cartagena, Colombia

Do you like your life the way it is? If you do… DON’T GO TO COLOMBIA. Stay as far away from the old city of Cartagena as you can. Don’t come close to incredible nature reserve of Tyrona, the salsa capital of Cali or the eternal spring in Medellin. Just stay away. I am NOT joking! The commercial from the Colombian Tourism Agency is not a commercial at all. It is a serious and truthful warning to you as a traveler; if you go to Colombia, the only risk you take, is wanting to stay.

“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.
