Thirty Seconds in Myanmar – En Route to the Bus Stop

Nov 27 2016

Posted by:

It seemed like seconds after we were whisked into Myanmar with no passport and no gear for passport photos, we were sitting, packs in hand, in the back of our private truck. Basking in the glory of not having to be on that truck. The highlight of the video is that awesome guy on the cell phone. Of note is the conversation about being late for the bus to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kengtung, Kyaingtong, Chiang Tung, Cheingtung, or Kengtong.

Mo and I had a mindset to do everything as cheap as possible. I believe this irked our fellow, f-bomb dropping traveller whom Mo had told does not factor into the decision process. The harsh logic, part of a constant mind game to sell you on some ridiculous bullshit. Possibly his best quality. We definitely would have bitched about needing to take a private truck.

Mexico Travel Adventures: Lucha Libre Guadalajara

Oct 26 2016

Posted by:

Hello everyone,

I’m in Mexico. Sunday Night Raw in Guadalajara was great. The area around the Arena Coliseo seemed rather innocuous. Really close to a major highway, the area isn’t very developed but high traffic and open.¬†From the people warning me of danger and online descriptions, I imagined a maze through a shanty town, death at every corner.

Sunday night, in this case was the low night. May not always be that way but the fight card for Tuesday was more expensive to enter. I had no idea but if I had a choice, I’d have gone for Tuesday’s big show. Bigger show, bigger crowd.

The best part of Lucha Libre for me (everyone?) was the crowd-luchador interaction. An example of this special back and forth between the passionate audience and luchador can be heard around the 15 second mark. Also, big stomps and clotheslines. Music by Matek.

Renovations

Jan 06 2016

Posted by:

My quiet neighbourhood used to be filled with the piercing screech of air horns, long ago often present in busses, now just regular horns take up most of the soundscape. However, not 10 days after Christmas, there arose such a clatter, I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter. And to what did my wondering eyes adhere but a shitty old truck and a bunch of guys throwing chunks of cement into it from 2 stories up. Pretty fun. Pretty loud. Good bye, sweet neighbourhood. I will miss us.

Thirty Seconds in China – Bad Day at Work

Jan 17 2015

Posted by:

These clam diggers are tough as nails. I was cold in my layers and I sure wasn’t walking through frigid waters pulling shellfish up from the depths. Not something I’d ever want to do.

Thirty Seconds in China – The Apartment

Jan 15 2015

Posted by:

In my daily wanderings, I venture past this place quite often. It is part of the dead street. A street consisting of grand developments left to wither away into smashed glass, dust and, strangely enough, sunflower arrangements. The street has started to come alive in the past few years. As the property value climbs in China’s binge to develop luxurious apartments for rich people to speculate and poor people to question practicality, the street wakens. Where once were town houses, whose only residents ended up being migrant workers in bunk beds during the mall construction, now bristles a condominium development. High rises are for the outskirts; this is the future, beautiful downtown where not but the sky towers overhead and the tree-lined streets cause one to ponder our natural beginnings.


Part 1. Deconstruction



Part 2. Excretion



Part 3. Rebirth
