The day when I started my journey, my wife and kids had waited for the bus to the airport with me. They were sad. My daughter Dolores told me: “why I can’t do this travel with you?” When the bus arrived, my wife said: “take care, enjoy and come back?”. And I replied: “I don’t … More 32 days of red-eyes
I booked my trip in last September, but I wanted to do this travel since 20 years ago, but what happened? Just a little things: marriage, kids, divorce, marriage, more kids.

Take a taxi in Peru could be very funny and an interesting experience First at all, the taxis there aren’t regulated. That means anyone could be a taxi driver (like Uber but very different).

When you travel by work or business, you see all the things in different than if it’s for pleasure I already talk about the Travel pants, but I think even worse that those pants are: the characters!

I was in Peru in 2013. Walking around the Miraflores (one of the nicest neighborhood of Lima), I found a funny sticker on a car. Apparently, in Lima traffic rules are most strict than Rome (See my post: Smart car for stupid people), also I think no wreckers are there (I didn’t see, at least). Sticker translation: I’M … More I’m horrendous driver

I didn’t count those travels, but I think, the average was one round trip per week. Nor I didn’t count … More Look the door!!!!
Have you ever worked inside the fridge? Bogota is a city without seasons. The daily temperatures range from 10°C to 20°C (50 to 68°F Avg). People there was “educate” to withstand temperatures “extreme”. It’s very common see children inside shopping wearing gloves, caps, balaclava, scarf, ski mask, jackets, etc. I was there (again) on Jan 2013 … More Working inside the fridge
I’ve been in Santiago de Chile several times. In one of those travels, I was there with my friend and co-worker N (May 2014).

In 2012, I spent eight months in Bogota. I didn’t like my life there. The city is very nice, actually. But the most important thing in a city is the food. I didn’t like the Colombian traditional food. To me, all the food has the same taste. For instance, all salad are the same and they … More Bogota – Bizarre city
