Remote town with no water or power

A travel blog entry by mattyjordan


So in the last few days we had done quite a bit of damage to our little rental car so i started the day off by trying to bang out the huge dents in the rims. No dice after 30 minutes so i gave up and tried to gather the gang. We drove for about 40 minutes till we got to cabo polonio.

Unfortunately one of the busses claimed Rich's kindle, ...

Decemeber to Remember

A travel blog entry by whereiswagner


... and my blogs had taken on too deep and lengthy a process to be put out often. I think some were too long and people stopped reading. So in an effort to make them more fan friendly, and to allow me to write more often, this will be the last overly-lengthy blog (hey it has been three weeks – a lot has happened).
