Travel Tips by Andy the Hobo
Hobo TRAVEL TIPS Issue 2

I am in Huanchaco, Peru. On the beach!!
Notes: Line Handling in the Panama Canal for David Clark
Quito, Ecuador and what is happening
Hostels / Hotels a list of the best.
PLEASE: Submit your ideas, and stories.


PROBLEM: Towels
I take a shower, than have to pack a wet towel.   
Smells!!!! after a long bus trip.

SOLUTION:
The last day in a hotel, I use the sheet off the bed to dry. I do
however make
sure I hang it up, so it can dry.

PROBLEM:
Directions to somewhere. i.e. Hotel, tourist attraction.

SOLUTION:
Ask 3 times from 3 separate people.   Than if you are walking, or
on the bus. etc. Ask 3 people again. If more than one person
agrees you are probably on the right path.

PROBLEM:
THEFT: Number 1 spot,
The rack above your bus seat. You fall asleep, and your bag disappears.


PROBLEM: POP E-mail accounts
I have a POP email account that I wish to download from my server in a
Internet Cafe.

Solution: Foxmail.
I downloaded a free program (download.com) to a 3.5 disk. I run the
program
directly from the disk in the internet cafe. All my message go on to the
disk,
and I can then read on the portable Compaq computer I carry.
To you just check, and send without downloading, I use:
