    Strip Search!

    Kiwi International Hotel Auckland, New Zealand Boss, My sketchy travel mode had to catch up with me at some point, so I guess I'm glad it happened here instead of, say, Zambia. At any rate, I came into the Auckland airport kinda loopy as I finally got SOMEONE to take those bunk biz-class upgrade v ... More >>

    Stay in the Sticks

    Sydney, Australia Hey Boss: I knew that in order to get my head right and tight down under this rock, I had to stay clear of the cities and concentrate my efforts on the small towns. I’m talking hamlets like Gin Gin, Bil Bil, Yeppon, win the hearts and minds of the populace, as the saying goes.

    Kangaroo Road Kill -- Sleepy Mad Max

    7.30.07 Rockhampton, Australia Tropic of Capricorn PBC, I split the first two weeks in this country between Sydney and Melbourne, trying to erase the image of Foo the Saigon security guard and his red Thermos from my mind while also trying to locate the fabled Australian "spirit."

    Heat on the Street (Trying to Find the 4th of July in Africa), Parts I and II

    July 5th, 2007 PBC, I was on my way to Madagascar after Zambia to collect some Lemurs for Mr. Banyan (he promised big bucks if I could get a pair of them back to him in Houston), but South Africa got pummeled by what looked to me like a typhoon, and my flight to Hellville was cancelled. You've got ... More >>

    Postscript to Honkin' Tonkin

    I think the article in the Viet Nam Times this morning regarding annual motocycle fatalities bears out my observation of how few crashes there are despite the chaos. The article stated that although fatal scooter accidents were up 642 from last year, to bring the total to over 7,100, you've still go ... More >>

    Bottlecap's Brew Brawl in Africa

    6.7.07 Johannesburg South Africa Airport Chief, I think we might need to set up a permanent bureau on that island to keep a lid on that rascal lawyer Werner. Those biz class upgrade chits he sold me were totally bogus and all I could use them for was to get a free set of earphones and one lager. ... More >>

    Bottlecap's Brew Brawl in Africa (Revisited)

    Chief, Sorry, had to get that last one off hasty as there were a bunch of Moroccans behind me, tapping their feet for me to hurry up and get off this greasy computer.

    Spanish Ex-Pat Suckers

    06.06.07 London Heathrow Airport Chief, A damn good thing you didn't send along that wire-transfer, because the German attorney turned out to be a total fraud. I would also say that The Professor is a long, long way from the friendly confines of academia. I should have known he was slipping when h ... More >>

    Edinburgh, Scotland: Ballad of Little D

    Chief, I used some miles to upgrade to business class on the flight over here thinking I might cop a few z's and arrive in Europe fresh. The only problem with this plan is my notorious penchant to abuse open bars. I am older and wiser now, so I thought I discretion might rule the day. I was doing f ... More >>
