I AM NOT IN KANSAS ANYMORE
Hobo is in Peru, south of the Equator

I am always amazed how the Wizard of Oz invades my brain, it
appears to be parts of my life, as I am always somewhere over
the rainbow and for sure not down on the farm in Indiana.

I went to La Paz, Bolivia over to the Jungle of Rurrenabaque,
the back to La Paz and have returned to Cusco, Peru.
because I am working to make the perfect backpack with Kikko
who has a sowing shop in Cusco. I am having problems with parts
and will probably have to buy in the USA.

I will soon go to Lima, check out the beach for my friend Chris
make sure the scenery is good, work on the tan. Then goo north to
Quito, Ecuador stopping at a couple of beaches along the way,
probably Máncora just before the border of Peru.

I am excited to eat some Empanadas Argentinas in with Ahi
in Otovalo, Ecuador and wander towards Bogotá, Colombia
to visit with German of the Platypus Bogotá probably one of the
world best traveled persons and most knowledgeable travelers.

I met a man in Bangkok, Thailand with the help of
http://www.johnnyjet.com

Him and his some traveled and made a movie called
Pop and Me about them sharing the trip.
http://www.chrisroe.net/popandme.html
My blog on in Thailand.
http://www.hobotraveler.com/2004/12/pop-and-me-movie.html

OK
So Richard the "Senior Bachelor" has been writing me, and I
even called him trying to help him arrange his fun project
called Senior Bachelor. He has written me often about where
I am, and what I am doing helping with comments.

I will probably travel along or meet up with him and I believe a
female companion as he travel also in South America.
Hopefully we can follow along in the Newsletter and I can tell
you folks where he is located.

HE WROTE:
Dear Friends, I just received word that the Senior
Bachelor segment will be broadcast on The Oprah
Winfrey Show Wednesday, April 27. I hope you will be
able to see it and I would be most grateful if you
would pass this information on to anyone you feel
would be interested. I will pass on details as soon as
I get them. Thanks for following along on The Senior
Bachelor Journey. Richard Roe

SMALL PLANET
The planet is shrinking.

I fell like a Jet Set Hobo as I find I am becoming able to fly
from place to place because "Life is Good"
http://www.hobotraveler.com/jo2lifeisgood.php

My blog is becoming better and better with lots of Photos
and I am having lots of fun. I am exploring new ideas of
travel. I hope to go to the "Campo" soon with an Amiga.
She invited me to go about five hours away from Cusco
to a Quechua, Village. This is one of them times I may
feel confident to say I am going to see the "Real Peru."
I am still trying to learn how to go to the Campo.
She says three hours in a bus and two hours on a Horse.
Who knows? I have decided to go to the mountains even
if she is confused, so I can explore the Quechua Culture.

This Hobo is having fun as I can meet up with people like
Richard of the SeniorBachelor.com and Johnnyjet.com

I wrote Johnny and told him,
"I keep meaning to tell you, I like the international flavor of your letters
now. Nice that you travel outside the USA more. ...
Of course you can always come visit with me, life is getting easy...
He wrote,
"Thanks Andy! I am trying to be more like you!"

HOTEL CHECKLIST

H.O.T.E.L.

Hot Water

Other People

Television

Eating

Locks

I have lived in too many Hotels, Hostels, Hostals, Aubuergues,
Pensions, Guesthouses, and any other name you can think of
for a Flophouse.

I am not choosy, I be Hobo, however I like to flop with the minimum amount
of services. Fortunately I have been able to upgrade from a minus
one star Hotel to a zero star hotel recently with good fortune from
the finding a job.... (HoboTraveler.com is solvent)

However I am still having problems, money does not guarantee
a good room, the only thing that guarantees a good room is me
checking the room before I pay.

I forget.
I forgot.
How could I forget to check?

Hot Water
I need to check to make sure the water is really hot, not just
an illusion.

Other People
My big request in a Hotel, I want a common area that is...
Not a bar.
Not a restaurant.
Where I can meet other people, compare notes, and have good
conversations about life.

Television
I like a television with cable TV, HBO, Cinemax, etc...
I have to check to make sure the TV works.
This is sad, I cannot believe they rent rooms with out the TV
working in either the room or the common areas.
I cannot be a tourist 24 hours a day, I need some fun.

Eating
I want a kitchen for me to cook, great way to meet people.

Locks
Does the room have a hasp or a way for me to put my own
padlock on the room. I only feel safe when the room is secure.
I do not let the maid or the owner enter my room.

Just me trying to remember what day it is?
Every Hotel needs inspected before you enter, a reservation
removes you ability to say.
No, not acceptable, I want another room, or I will go to another
Hotel,
Thank you.


Have fun! Life is Good!

As always, these are suggestions. Please realize I am
giving guidance, and there are always other opinions.
“One mans paradise, is another mans hell”
This way we do not all go to the same place.

COMMENT OR QUESTION:
-------------------------------------------------------------

REQUEST FROM ANDY

Please read these emails or letters to the editor, and
help me answer these questions.

ARE YOU A TRAVELER?
WHAT IS REAL CULTURE?
TRAVEL SNOBS?
WHY TRAVEL?

This is quite a mess, however it is it intriguing to understand
hope people view themselves and how they view culture,
travel, what is a traveler, and of course, me, Andy of HoboTraveler.com

I would love to have you reply and tell me your thoughts on these
letters.

LETTER ONE

From (I will keep anonymous, Thomas Has an Opinion)

Subject: User Sent Message - [Traveller/Bus vs Tourist/Plane]

 love all your stuff and tales..however I have to disagree with your opinion.
I am a budget traveller..travelling on a shoesting..around the world.
One thing that I find among travellers is what I call \"reverse snobbery\", usually
practised by super budget travellers. Sometimes, I find these travellers think that
they must travel with bone crunching weight on their backs, stay in the cheapest
of the cheap rooms(roaches no problem), travel endless hours by foot or bus
along with livestock, eat at greasy questionable establishments and endure other
hardships. I think they do this because they want to be \"travellers\", and experience
the \"real\" culture. I, like most travellers, would hate to be stuck in an overpriced,
plastic resort sipping drinks at the pool, being surrounded only by other travellers
and never going beyond resort property. ButI feel that the real culture of any
country is experienced at any comfort/income level. Each expereince gives you a different!

, real insight into the culture. You can interact and meet native people on a plane or a
bus. You can interact and enjoy a foreign culture and the people if you stay at a Hilton
or a hammack on a beach. Who is to say that the realness of a different culture can
only be expereinced below a certain comfort or poverty level? So I say to all the
bannana pancake eating snobs...widen your horizons and stop with the moralizing
simply becasue you don\'t have lots of money....Thanks

Thomas HASANOPINION
thomasHASANOPINION@yahoo.com

ANDY REPLIES

Hello,
I am making MANY dollars per month now, still believe
the snobbery is with the Hilton folks.
Andy

LETTER TWO

I'm sure they make MANY DOLLARS a month too, but its more likely
( but not guarranteed) they have lots of energy because they sleep like a
dream, they go to cheap, outstanding neighborhood safe restaurants frequented
by the locals because they make freinds with the staff, they may be invited to
enjoy great local music in comfortable surroundings in concert halls, they have
an extra time to shop and bargain in the local markets because they took a plane,
they were invited to a local wedding because they rode first class on a train
( that had a clean toilet) and sat next to local guy who just graduated college
and landed a great job, they didn't get sick when they ate the local specialty of
fried crickets because they knew where to buty them ( rather than from the
market lady scooping them out of a burlap bag with her dirty bare hands), they
played with the kids at the nursery because they met a local teacher at the gym
at the hotel....and best of all, they ate bannana pancakes and were very
comfortable and non-judemental about hanging out at the beach like beach
bums, along with everyone else.
You prove my point- you have cast braod discriminating judement on those
"Hilton folks". I don't think all backpacker hobo travellers share your opinion
of the Hilton crowd. Those that do are the ones guilty of snobbery in its most pure form.
Happy Travelling ( guilt free to enjoy whatever you like)
Peace

Thomas HASANOPINION
thomasHASANOPINION@yahoo.com

Hello,
I am the one making MANY dollars per month now.

Why are you angry what a Hobo says?

I will have fun in the newsletter with this one.
Andy

LETTER THREE

No..I'm not angry...I'm happy about this wonderful wide world..it's all about options....
having the option to be comfortable, happy and free.. If you make 5 dollars a month
or MANY a month..if you can afford to spend a little more..it doesn't mean that
you are missing the "real" local culture..local culture and great travelling can be
had at any income level...if you can, but choose not to spend money on travel
expereinces..that's fine........but to label the "Hilton crowd" or the "taking a plane"
as not true travellers, is rather narrowminded and judemental. And isn't that why
we all travel...to experience new and discard the old tired ways of thinking?
Glad to provide you with some stuff for your publication! Keep up the good work!

Thomas HASANOPINION

I WROTE:  4-18-2005
Hello Thomas,

I have enjoyed reading your letters offline, I try to be careful and not say
much about longer letters until I have time to read a couple of times.

I have some questions and I believe you are addressing some real important
questions.

QUESTIONS

1. Where did you get the term "Hilton Crowd."
Did I use this or say this somewhere, I may have, however I can not find where.

2. What is the "Real Culture"?

3. What is "Shoestring travel?"

4. Where do they eat "Banana Pancakes."

5. Where do you live?

6. Why do you think this, when you say?

"Keep up the good work!"

What am I doing good?

Thanks for the enjoyable reading or your letters to me, I dwell on the points or ideas
you talk about in your letters, and try my best to clarify for myself the thoughts.
You opinions are interesting and thought provoking for me.

Thanks
Andy in La Paz Bolivia

I am still waiting, if no reply then a roast... hehehe

COMMENT OR QUESTION:
-------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Andy
Keep on writing the way you write.Being open-minded is something I suppose
people might expect will happen through meeting lots of different people-but to
be yourself is most important. Actually you come across as very flexible to
me-and isn't that a kind of openmindedness in itself? I've really enjoyed your EMails.
I suppose I'm midway between your tourist and traveller. I've travelled a bit
through India-though not alone. Also been to turkey and Tunisia-a bit off
tourist routes at times and not at others. I'd love to have the courage-a bit
scared-too much imagination about things that could go wrong for a woman
travelling alone. Anyway find your EMails inspiring.
Keep on introducing bits and pieces of the world in your own way.
Kymberley

ANSWER

Hello Kymberley,

I enjoyed reading your email, very balanced and fair.

Strangely most people spend all their time telling me what they want me to do,
or wanting me to answer travel agent questions. If I answer one then they ask
more and more, then I have to just stop writing back.

Flexible versus open-mindedness.
That is a big word... hehehe (open-mindedness)

I am more of a tourist than a traveler, however it is fun to label because people
have such pride in saying who and what they are. I personally am just a guy that likes
to enjoy life and analyze. I enjoy the analyzation more than actually caring what the differences
are, on the other hand I would say I am extremely non-judgmental and open minded.

The difference is I will say my opinion, I do nothing almost to avoid the people that annoy me.
Because they really do not annoy me, it is more of analyzation craziness, I see a lot of people
as being very silly and maybe in a father type of way, I wish to prompt them to think.
However like my own father and mother I have learned. Children will do as they wish
and they are not going to listen, and you must love them anyway.

People want me to agree that they are smart, this then only lies with one specific
opinion of theirs, if I say one specific opinion is wrong, then I am saying they are
dumb, stupid, and the converse applies, if I do not agree with one of their opinions
then I am narrow-minded or not open-minded.


My grammar is bad so I am stupid, this is silly, this is like saying
because 95 percent of the people are not good on computers as me then
they are stupid.

I also have great fun with the Webmaster or internet experts, they really hate
my pages, because they are not pretty like they want. There is a style they want
to see and I do not and will not give them the style they want to see. A lot of
it has to do with being a Hobo, there is not way a Hobo should look perfect.
This is no a characteristic of a Hobo.

I on the other hand am a product of being a Hobo and traveling cheap.
Everyone things I live in dumps, I very seldom live in dumps and do not think
a Hobo tries to live in dumps, they try to live as cheap as they can and still
as the best they can.

Meeting a lot of people will not make you open-minded it will make you
know who to avoid. Intolerant people cannot travel, what happens as you
meet more people is you have more opinions, that does not mean that the
percentage of opinions about people become better, you do not learn to love
people more because you meet more people. You just meet more people
and really a tourist or traveler that goes home makes the judgment.

They say, I like the people at home more than meeting new people.
I like to meet new people, and I like to meet the same people.

When a person analyzes a situation, they may deduce or induce from
many experiences a different opinion than expected, this is considered
not being open-minded, it is really that the person derived a different
or maybe clear and unbiased opinion that did not hold to the majority.
There is nothing about the majority that is correct, they for most make a
very bad decisions.

I would never want a complete democracy whereby the whole group
would vote for every decision it would be chaos as everyone got rid
of taxes and gave themselves a raise. Children or the public, rabble as
Descarte, Marx, Freud, and many philosopher types have noted.

OPEN-MINDED
unprejudiced: free from prejudice and receptive to new ideas

PREJUDICE:
opinion formed beforehand: a preformed opinion, usually an unfavorable one,
based on insufficient knowledge, irrational feelings, or inaccurate stereotypes

ANALYZE
1. break down into components: to find out what something is made up
of by identifying its constituent parts

2. examine structure: to study or examine the structure of something or
how its constituent parts are put together

3. study closely: to examine something in great detail in order to understand
it better or discover more about it

COMMENT OR QUESTION:
-------------------------------------------------------------


Hello again,  Andy
 
Thank you for your interesting EMail. There is plenty in what you say, for me to think about.
I agree people do like to give themselves labels. And other people, as well!
 
I also think it is a good idea to analyze eople, annoying or otherwise.I analyze
myself first e.g. why do I find that person annoying. What is in me that can be affected
by that person?.  One persons annoying person is another persons friend.
 I am a teacher. I work with teenage boys with emotional and behavioural difficulties.
Sometimes I think they can be very annoying. Sometimes I think they see me as
annoying, also. Mostly we get on very well, together. However, when I am feeling
annoyed with one or more of them, I also analyse. It works a treat, to give me space.
Then things don't affect me.
 
One other thing that I agree with strongly is the way you will not let 'computer
experts' or Webmaster dictate to you how your site should look. I think the site
has its own individual look, and as you yourself are obviously very individual.
You live a very individual life. I think it is a life many people might like to live
but they are afraid to give up the security of steady money and living in one
place, they know well.Too many people run with the herd. They are afraid to
break out of their safe, but little lives. I would say I break out sometimes-a bit.
Where-as you perhaps are having experiences some people only dream of.
Though I know travelling is not easy. I also think to travel well you need to do
it quite cheap to meet ordinary people,
Ordinary people are not in the posh hotels,
on the luxury coaches. They are in little hotesl/guest houses/home stays.
They are bunched together on buses and trains, and in stalls on the street.
 
I live in London. Today I met a man from South Africa. We were waiting for
a bus and he struck up a conversation. He said travelling could easily be
lonely but he also makes friends as he travels. In that way he gets to learn
a bit about the people in a place from first hand experience I think he deals
with travelling far from home a little bit like you.He makes his friends as he goes.
I continue to think about, and enjoy your thoughts on people through the world.
Kymberley

ANSWER

No answer, however please focus on the comment about
Ordinary people are not in the posh hotels.
