More Strange Fruit on Planet Earth

More Strange Fruit on Planet Earth
I continuously find new fruits or vegetables on planet earth, the grand experience of travel is not talking about what I understand, it trying to explain what I do not. I know nothing about this fruit, in fact for all I know it may be a vegetable.

Do you know what this is?

No Tipping in Developing World Countries

No Tipping in Developing World Countries
I have well intended Americans send me pages on how to Tip, every once in awhile I find pages on how to Tip. I always think to myself,
“Why do I need this? People do not Tip, why would I?”

80 percent of the world is normal, and 20 percent is overdeveloped.

The USA is not normal, it is overdeveloped.

The majority of people on the planet earn less than 15 US. Dollars per day, and they do not Tip.

Tipping is an USA thing, maybe a little European, but it is not normal for normal people to Tip.

Tipping is promoted, encouraged, and propagated as normal by the Tourist Industry, they are convincing you to do something that is not natural.

Tipping is not natural, it is abnormal.

Reading about the Plane Crash

Reading about the Plane Crash
What would you read about if you subscribed to 100 Travel Journals?

About a plane that landed in the Hudson River again, and again and again and again until it becomes cliché.

I wonder what the correct writing terms is for this?

I am having a difficult time finding Travel Journals where the person travels, generally they collect travel related information, rewrite it, rephrase it and put their stamp on it.

I do understand not everyone can travel, but there needs to be qualifiers.

Travel Information I read about...

I feel guilty when I stay in one country more than a month.

Don’t Flash Your Cash Travel Tip

Don’t Flash Your Cash Travel Tip
Robbing people in Tourist areas is incredibly simple for thieves because the tourists and travelers flash their cash. You walk up to a street vendor, pull out a wallet and show the whole city what you have.

What is the biggest flash of cash possible?

You walk into the Hotel, and pull out a money belt, flop it on the reception desk and the every neighbor in the Hotel knows the soft target.

You go to an ATM machine, withdraw your money and walk out of the enclosure still tucking the money away.

You open your wallet and they can see 10 credit cards lined up in neat little rows, wow, this person has some buying power.

The beggar walks up to the restaurant, your wife opens her purse to give some money, the beggar sees how much, grabs the purse, and runs.

A girl is wearing a shirt with her belly showing, as she walk by I can see her money belt lying across the skin of her back, with or without the tramp stamp.

What is the biggest flash of cash possible?

Walking done the street with all our luggage or backpacks, for sure you have your complete net worth with you, this is a huge problem.

Contrary to any misguided information you have learn along the way, thieve normally know how much they can steal before they rob you.

Videos of Isolated Tribes Papua New Guinea

Videos of Isolated Tribes Papua New Guinea

I am working on an expedition to go near isolated tribes on the Yurua, River upstream from the village of Breu or Dulce Gloria, Peru.
Isolated Peru Tribes Expedition

I have collected here is six 10 minute videos explaining a situation similar. I however would take many weeks to enter close to these area, and would not try to approach, I would hope they would comes to villages to trade.

WARNING
Please be a reasonable person with the incredible repetition of the words first contact. The phrase first contact and uncontested tribes are used in this video and mean nothing here, they have sensationalized and misrepresented in my ways for dramatic reason.

Rain Mud Noise Gambling and Chicas

Rain Mud Noise Gambling and Chicas
Pucallpa, Peru in January is rainy, muddy, and as always noise with the roar of the moto-taxis. Here are a few photos of Pucallpa…

What a great place, I feel right at home, I call Pucallpa, Peru a border town, the frontier between the people who live on land, and those who live on the river.

Mototaxi, like a modified Tuk Tuk, this noisy vehicle provide the transportation from the airport to my room. I found a muddy side street that gives you the feel for Pucallpa in January.



I was walking by a local Casino; there are tons of them in Pucallpa when I spotted this girl leaning against the door jam like a siren wanting me to enter. She moved before I could photograph here in the more sultry position, however now you get to see the slot machines.

The call these gambling places in Peru,
“Tragamonedas.”

More or less means, “swallow-your-money” this is a Slot Machine.



Coca leaves, to the East here towards the border of Brazil there are many Cocaleros farms growing Coca leaves to feed the Cocaine business.

Border towns are always interesting, a little of this, a little of that, and a less rules to interfere.

Something Will Always Happen

Something Will Always Happen
A Travel Tip

Often in our misguided need to control, we lose the way; there is no reason to worry,
“something will always happen.”

Although it may seem difficult, this is the easiest of all travel tips to follow, instead of pushing, all we need to do is allow something to happen.

Whether we label this guidance instinct, intuition, destiny or the hand of the good Gods leading the way, if we let go, something will always happen to show the way. There always comes the time when we know we are on the right path however, we do not know why, but we can feel it. Wait for the right decision to arrive, something will always happen, and trust this feeling.

The culture of modern man hides from this power; they deny the importance and often lose the way.
