RENdom Sinking Ship of the Day

Well, it looks like she's gone. I sort of feel sad having spent ten days on board. It was a nice little ship, not a big cruise ship like the lifeboat. The staff on board were incredibly knowledgeable and polite, and of course the Antarctic scenery is incredible. They also had a piano on board which was the only time I was able to play the keys while travelling for a year and a half. Damn, I wish someone would have saved that piano.

RENdom Sinking Ship of the Day

This is crazy. I was on this sinking ship in March of 2006 on a trip to Antarctica.
(see NY Times article and BBCnews article).......man, I hope that South American Explorers still prints the cover story I wrote about taking a last minute trip to Antarctica.
Lucy, just edit the stuff out about sailing on the "Explorer" and the article will still be good to go.

A boat makes its way across the Mekong River from Laos to Thailand. Security is pretty lax here, so you could pretty much swim across the Mekong if for some reason you needed to flee one of these countries, although the current is pretty strong, that you might end up in Cambodia first.

The Feds just announced that the economy is going from shitty to shittier. Pretty soon, these counterfeit bills will be worth the same as the actual bills they're trying to imitate. A British guy I met withdrew 400 USD's out of an ATM one night, and came out with these counterfeit bills. There's a big counterfeit scam in Bolivia, and many of the bank workers are in on it. Never withdraw USD's in Bolivia. At least wait till the US economy is completely in the shitter.
