ONE HUNDREDTH ISSUE
of Hobo Travel Tips
This is the one hundredth issue of this
travel newsletter. The first official issue was
sent on January 1, 2000 when I was in Panama
when the USA gave the Panama Canal to Panama.
The archives of all letters is here:
I suppose I should try to say something
halfway profound, if that is possible. I suppose
a spontaneous profound statement is really
not possible. Those type of comments happen
My travels have taught me many things.
I am not sure what to say..........?
I like travel.
Every day is different.
It is hard to get real bored.
I am trying to think.... hmmm
What have I learned from travel?
MY BIGGEST LESSON
I can work one month or two a year
in McDonald and live very nice in Guatemala
for the rest of the year and not work.
Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Laos, Cambodia
and many many more. Probably 90
percent of the planet.
By the luck of the draw I was born in
a country that earns more money
in one hour than almost 90 percent
of the world earns in 1 day.
I AM RICH
This is the reason to travel.
Quality of life.
This means I will never have to
work hard again for the rest of my life.
I will have time.
AM I A BETTER PERSON?
Not really. Not enough to say its a reason
to go travel
I AM GRATEFUL
I was born in the best of all worlds.
Safe, clean, and people that say
hello to you as you walk down the street.
My account is full.
I have enough subjects, and
conversations for the rest of my life.
I can talk a little about everything.
This knowledge and 1 dollar will get me a cup
PEOPLE ARE THE SAME
I have found that almost all people are the
same. The bosses are different.
I have discovered that maybe
Australia, New Zealand, and sort of
the Scandinavian country there is NO
class system. In the rest of the world.
You have First Class seats.
Second Class and Coach.
AMERICANS ARE PEASANTS
This is the first world attitude and
way they treat people from the USA.
Seen and not heard.
A peasant rebellion.... hehehe
Wear your flag.
They are losing their culture.
A sort of
“Gone with the wind.”
They are afraid, and angry.
I suppose 90 percent of the world
feels they are second class and do
not deserve to be King. Someone
needs to tell them the jail door is open.
LAND OF OPPORTUNITY
It is easier to make a million in
these underdeveloped countries.
This is like telling the sun not to shine.
If you want to stop globalization.
Stop watching MTV.
Send them all trash cans.
Increase the value of a beer bottle.
Make some really really large
clean air machines, or purifiers.
Or like an air conditioner, but
ADDED - January in India 2004
Rice paddies are evaporating all the water.
Get them a retirement plan
( Care of old people )
So they do not make children
to take care of them.
Check them all for AIDS.
Just too simple to stop.
Cars and motorcycles are the
the biggest danger in the world.
Monitor and stop your own people.
Send them TV’s they will implode.
Need a second Muhammad to rewrite
the rule books.
ADDED: January 2004 in India, by Andy
Religious dress is a huge problem.
It helps the hateful know who to hate.
Religious Bells, chimes, horns, loud speaker systems you
be abolished that can be heard by everyone and is really annoying. Plus a form
of mass shame and indoctrination. The allowing of religions to DAILY call upon a
house should be illegal. Note that these are my opinions and are not written in
rock, and are ideas to open the debate.
Cameras & Guns
Shoot the corrupt people.
Another word for liars.
Work. There are lots of jobs.
Relax... Ignorance is bliss
They all want to watch sports.
Leave them alone.
Church / Camera
1. Abolish kings
2. Sit the Religious leaders down
and tell them they are not God.
3. Dictators / Kill them or early retirement.
Leave the place.
Move closer to water.
What 3 so called intellectuals will do while
playing the bongos.
Shave your head, before it goes
out of fashion.
Tax them a straight 10-5 percent sales tax.
OVER POPULATED JAILS SYSTEMS
Put them all in solitary confinement.
They will not go back.
Move - Work - Better statistics or real ones
Take away the dole and welfare.
Talk to people that smile and laugh
and walk on the other side of the
street from the others.
THE PROBLEM WITH WESTERN WORLD
They work to much.
I laugh at myself for writing this letter.
Fun and real solutions.
But I am more positive everyday that
in the whole scope of thing. I am not
that important, and in a free world.
That is good that neither of us will
become the King or Queen.
I have lot of people tell me to read more
and learn more, and all these others
deficiencies. I have found they really
want me to be more like them, and
less like me.
If I keep my picture off the webpage.
Drink a cup of coffee in the morning.
Remember to say where I am located....
(I am in Thailand on the Mekong River.)
Walk a lot.
Read for fun.
Think for fun.
Write for fun.
Try to think and say what I think.
Ignore what is politically correct.
Do more things in the day that makes
me happy, than things that make me sad.
I have a good day.
I try to remember Rod Stewarts subtle advice..
“A winks, as good as a nod, to a blind horse”
He is saying.
Wink at the girls
It works better than a nod of the head.
When was the last time you read a
“Think outside the box.”
Get out of the box silly.
Today's - Going this way is about
Slow boat to China.
Today tip is on
MONEY - WHERE DID IT GO?
Just another day in Paradise!
