How I feel today, or a start down
the proverbial travelers path.

Travel has a way of stretching the mind. The stretch comes not from
travel's immediate rewards the inevitable myriad new sights smells
and sounds but with experiencing firsthand how others do differently
what we believed to be the right and only way.
- Ralph Crawshaw

~ BACKPACKER JARGON

The Goa Thing
 - Reference to going to Goa, India
Goa is a must stop on the travelers list of places to go
to say you are a true traveler, it is a bragging right that is
needed to one-up the traveler next to you.
Note Alex Garland references Goa in his book "The Beach."
There is a cheap drug, live cheap, British, Gap Year, Lager Head
and Around the World path from England to Australia and then
the converse of Australia to England thing incorporated into
this stop... Goa, India

OUT OF NIGER

I left Zinder, Niger went to Agadez, Niger to see the Nomads
or remnants of Nomads. Scooted back to Niamey to catch the plane
to Cairo, Egypt. Picked up my India, Visa, then went to Amman Jordan
to catch a plane to Mumbai, India.

I am in India, will fly to Bangkok, then to the Philippines, Singapore
and probably the winter in the Caribbean.

------------------------

A Travelers Resting Place
- This is not India…
There are Nomads on the Planet.

- It is not easy this road you travel though you talk much as to it being easy,
but... i think the road (for now) has more chosen you. -
…A comment posted on the Hobo blog by Tomas:
http://www.hobotraveler.com/2005/09/too-much-respect.html

Whether I chose the path, or whether the path chooses me, I am still weary
from my travels and looking for place to rest, I have a feeling it will be the
Philippines as they have this extremely good Internet Access Internet Café
in Manila and are Restaurant ran by Midgets that makes a cheap
Shawarma that is great.

I am learning and always learning, I have discovered there is a need
for fortitude of a true traveler as there can be and are trips where
you may travel for 5-10-20 days and never stop, much like the
Nomads of Agadez, Niger or the Sahara Desert of Africa.

Niger was a big lesson for me, I must stop believing or giving
the press credibility, it is embarrassing when I say in a newsletter
or talk about an issue and then find myself naďve. I thought when
I saw first a BBC show where children were dying and then
another where the crops of Millet were one-half the normal
height that I was entering an extreme famine area.

Niger is an Epidemic of Malnutrition.

Now I have learned the crop is only an eleven percent shortfall
and there is no famine, however I did learn of a chain of events
that in eight years of travel I have never noticed. Poverty is
everywhere, it is a normal bed partner of a traveler, I live, eat, and
have the friend of poverty everyday, you cannot travel the world
and avoid poverty. Sometimes I wish I could, at best all I can achieve
is temporary spots on the planet, like Manila in the Philippines
where I can take a rest.

Poverty in the world is defined as earning less than one dollar
per day, if you think you understand the problem, please think again.

I am presently in India, and they have a billion people or something
like that, and Niger has only 10 Million, work the math, this place
has the same problem, only in bigger numbers.

CHAIN
No Job - No Money - Poverty - Bad Food
- Mother with Malnutrition - Baby with Malnutrition

A baby is born with half the chance, all because of no jobs.

I am working on some projects, I see the NGOs as being ineffective,
I discovered they have been in Niger for over 10 years, they have big
offices, big cars, and in many ways the reason the book the
“Ugly American” was written. I am sad to hear the words,
“NGO’s it’s a business.”

Foods in Niger:
http://www.hobotraveler.com/2005/09/photos-of-niger-typical-foods.html

If nothing else in my life, I now believe it is vital that a person eat a
balanced diet, I am presently changing my food habits. Resorts feed you;
I do not live in a resort, and have learned that even with an
American Budget I cannot find the food.

I got very sick in Mongolia and China, got many infections, and other
maladies of health, I started taking vitamins and drinking more
orange juice. I do not like vegetables and fruits;
I am not a garbage disposal eater.

My experiment here in India is to eat a different food every time
I eat everyday of the week, no repetition of food, I must eat a unique
food each time I eat. This has made me aware I only eat a few foods;
I find what it cheap, what is easy, and I eat it daily. This does not work.
Fortunately for most tourist or travelers they spend most of their time
eating in restaurants, I now see that this focus is good, very time
consuming, I cannot be bothered time consuming, however good
for their health.

I have walked around one more per day presently in Mumbai searching
for food that is unique, there is little choice. I can eat 20 types of
cookies or crackers, 20 types of nuts, variety is difficult.

If you know how dirty India is, and how difficult it can be to deal with
people, then you may understand to find a unique healthy food for
each meal is work. Often the big problem is I am cheap, I do not want
to pay double the USA cost to buy food here in India, when I know any
supermarket in the USA for half the price, I can find better food, clean,
quick, and high quality.
(Walmart, I dream of Walmart, a solution to Malnutrition.)

This is the essence of Malnutrition, the good foods often cost too much
and are too difficult to eat, easier to eat cookies than to cook corn, eat
a pineapple, find a good piece of meat. We eat what is easy and quick,
not what is healthy and work.

I have a family that cares about me.
They want me to have a job and money.

If people learn to care about each other, then maybe the problem
of poverty will end. Maybe a 200 year project.

Enough of boring you to death, life for me is very good; I will soon change
the channel, take some beach photos and smell the flowers.

Andy in Mubai, India.
Where you can see anything…
Where life is a question mark?

Today’s tip
NO tip, too many photo, too much work... hehehe

Just another day in Paradise!
