Admiring Penguins in Port Lockroy, Antarctica

Port Lockroy, Antarctica

Antarctica is very magical place, to try to describe it wouldn’t give it justice.  This picture was taken at Port Lockroy, a British museum and post office.  The official “most southern most post office in the world” which will take 2 months for post cards to arrive since everything is sent via ship.  Ironically the […]

Dancing Salsa In Medellin, Colombia

This is a video from my buddy Dave who have been living in Medellin 6 months out of the year.  The people in Colombia absolutely LOVE dancing and Salsa is definitely one of their specialties.  In the video you will see that my buddy David definitely breaks the old adage that white boys can’t dance!   I […]

First Impressions of Living in Colombia

EFFECIENCY: When you think of Latin America there is nothing more that comes to the mind other than corruption and disorder. Many have even gone as far to say that part of the charm is the disorder. That charm may be the case when you are visiting for two weeks, but when you are living […]

Ah yes Malaria of the mouth.  If you haven’t heard about this new virus then let me enlighten you.

I’m currently sitting in Tampa, Fl watching the Miami Heat game reflecting on my photos and experience in Brazil, you didn’t know I could multitask?
