Suriname travel documentary

I was hoping to find a Dutch travel show with subtitles, and I found one! Erica Terpstra is a former Olympic swimmer turned politician. If you are the least bit interested in Suriname, this is worth watching.

French Guiana today

I have decided to visit all the Guianas as a 50th birthday present to myself in five years. So I am researching the area.

Here is a news report about the overseas territory's current status. Not great.

Sikh truck drivers in America

Very informative video and article.

Should I get a Jaguar XF Sportbrake?


I spotted one today at a car meet. I think it is the second one I've ever seen. Maybe it's the same car.

It is being discontinued, after just two years. I don't think they ever sold a thousand of these in America. Rumors are you can get one with a $30,000+ discount.

Full House (of Mustaches)

Eating the Globe: Slovenia


Last night, I went out with a few college friends and I started off with a glass of Slovenian rose. I'm not a big rose fan so I couldn't tell if it was good or not.

We ended up having a great time. We have all changed so much and yet not at all.
