Maybe I can figure out a way to incorporate this into navigation, and hope the links do not break. 90 percent of the time I do not have a connection, therefore not easy to play, and learn.

Hospitality

Hospitality
- Hospitality refers to the relationship process between a guest and a host, and it also refers to the act or practice of being hospitable, that is, the reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers, with liberality and goodwill. Hospitality frequently refers to the hospitality industry jobs for hotels, restaurants, casinos, catering, resorts, clubs and any other service position that deals with tourists.

Hospitality is also known as the act of generously providing care and kindness to whomever is in need.-

Every time I read a sign on a Hotel,
- Your home away from home, I start to laugh. -

Hospitality is what I search for in a Hotel, there are cultures that are friendlier than others…

Philippines or German?

I am from the State of Indiana, in the country of the USA.

To be a good person and friendly is a priority to me; I am always trying to determine priorities of Hotels. I know it is not maintenance, I cannot remember a room that did not need maintenance.

However, I am presently in a Hotel whereby one of the main people, a man by the name of Irwin is very Hospitable. The owner, most of the others just give me the blank, however just one person in the hotel can be a luxurious experience. One person who is just naturally friendly and hospital.

I enjoy having someone say good morning, hello, how are you, and ide chatting of a friendly person, a rare experience in Hotels nowadays. This is something that any hotel can provide.

Three Days to Adjust to New City

Three Days to Adjust to New City
I am trying to devise a simple method of earning travel money on the internet. I am experimenting with photos pages and trying my best to document the problems and solutions.

I found it took me three days to adjust from the trip from Mexico to Guatemala. I think this adjustment is what could stop many travelers as they would never stop putting enjoyment before work.

There is a rush of excitement upon entering a new country, new colors, new people, and new words.

Irwin the man who works in the hotel corrected me; I am now an Extranjero, and not a Gringo.

This rush is addictive, an endorphin push that many travelers become hopelessly in love with and continually self-inject by continuously moving. I am abnormally aware and cautious of addictive feeling because of my alcohol addiction.

The rush is great, however very disruptive to work, I tend to hide more in the room so I can adjust slowly.

Fast Travel Photos Pages

Fast Travel Photos Pages
After ten years of travel, I finally have finally created what I feel is a proper way to file, label and show photos to the world. I tried a few php page yesterday, they crashed and burned.

Finally decided on shtml page and hope, my parent dial-up deals better with this and they load fast enough.

I do not like thumbnails, those small pictures you click to make big, if I want to look at pictures, I want to look, and I do not like to spend my whole time working at a page to see photos.

Here is a taste of the new system; I hope Explorer and Firefox, Opera, Safari and any other way of seeing pages works.

900 READY TO GO PAGES -Will hold 8999 Photos
No thumbnails, just the 640 x 480 or 480 x 640, ten photos per page, down from 15 to this, hope to spend more time with photos and less time in filing, sorting and making pages. I now have 900 pages ready to go that can hold 8999 photos, this is about a years worth of photos.

The problem is this, cameras have become better, I can take about five times the photos per day than I could five years ago, and it is just a lot simpler to take photos, download. I now hope I have streamlined the making of pages and publishing. My goal is to publish 50 photos per day.

If anybody has any ideas on how to improve, make simpler, easier, better SEO, whatever, then please comment on this post.

Blackbeard the Pirate

Blackbeard the Pirate
Ironic twist of fate, I turn on a movie this morning in Antigua, Guatemala and what is on the Hallmark Channel.

There is a small pleasure in trying to understand the freedom a pirate enjoyed living outside the law, an outlaw.

Honduras is close; I have felt a small egret for years because I took the El Salvador path south through Central America on my prior visit and not the Honduras, Scuba Dive, Pirate Island Route.

I read the Historical Novel by James Michener somewhere while on the road and learned some interesting wanders of the Pirates of the Caribbean.

I see the Wiki is doing a great job of collecting list Historical Novels. A typical style of many travel writers is to start out with a Quote, then slowly name drop titles of books, with quotes from these books.

When they wish to disclaim or distance a comment from themselves, or somehow say something, but not take responsibility, they will quote another book, thus saying the same thing without the heat. I normally just write and say what I think, and then add the quotes as collaboration. Interesting twist of styles if you notice, some authors almost take no responsibility for their own thoughts or beliefs.

Selling Clothes to Poor Countries

Selling Clothes to Poor Countries
People go to Africa, Asia, South American and buy clothes cheap and import to the more expensive countries. What sells well in all cheap, poorer countries of the world?

I guess it is called Urban Fashions or some type of inner city USA fashion, I do not really understand, but something hip-hop.

I have seen many vendors begging to find or buy these pants that hang off your butt, the sideway hats and all the trendy clothes. I think the brands on the clothes is what is needed, in reverse some of the cheaper countries make these brand name clothes and import to the USA as originals.

However, somehow if you wanted to export in reverse this urban type clothing is fashionable and can get top dollar. Not a good business, like dealing with Coyotes, trying to make deals with people in poor countries is for the very wise business person.

This site may be a good example:
http://www.sojones.com

The world will sleep on dirt floors, yet pay their whole weeks wages to have cell phones, clothes or to look fashionable. Fashion comes before children and food, it trumps.
