I have had a totally great time in New orleans. Played all the town. Played piano with fingers bleeding. Yes just like Jerry lee. They actually compared me to James Booker. It makes me very proud and happy that the people appreciated my piano playing there, because new orleans is just the top for every musician if you understand.

Well there are many many stories to tell.. I have continued to Jamaica for three weeks and it was too beautiful to tell in words.. met too many people to describe them all.. saw all the country, discussed w UNESCO, visited the Maroons (independent great grandchilren of slaves who fought the British sucessfully 200 years ago and still are somewhat independent from Jamaica, dont pay taxes, etc. everything very rural there..

hm ok. at the moment I am in Costa Rica. Have stayed in Puerto Viejo for about a week, a chilly town with some of the most beautiful beaches you can imagine. Better than Hawaii. Definitely. Hawaii was ok but very touristy in Honolulu, and the Big Island/ Hilo was kind of sleepy...

Cosdta Rica is bustling life. la pura vida. At the moment, I am in San Jose, the main city, and just imagine the markets and everything ther, night sets in, and tonight i am going to dance at the Centro Comercial El Pueblo. Yes actually i should better learn spanish, here its difficult to move without.

So, there was that tarzan experience, zou can swing from tree to tree over hundreds of meters with one of those tours, was fun. I might continue to some volcanoes tomorrow, and then i will take the 10 hrs bus from San Jose to Nicaragua. The main town, Managua, is still destructed from what I hear,.. dangerous maybe but cant be more dangerous than Kingston, so I figure I will survive.

When I am back I may start a new FYM thred about the TSA. It really sucks, and I will not go back to the United States, or fly via the States, if I can avoid it. I do NOT like to be treated as a terrorist. I understand security is important, but those guys are really unprofessional and unfriendly. I did not feel welcome when I arrived on the airports, especially Dallas and Miami suck big time. When a tourist goes to another country, he wants to feel welcome.

I like the U.S. though. The Grand Canyon was just incredible. Vegas is a total fucking waste, but thats ok as long as they bring me the drinks. Downtown its nice. Vegas should definitely improve pedestrians conditions on the Strip. Its very complicated to move around without a car or taxi. And we arent posh are we. Well, the Venetian was pretty style.. liked it.

But, since the TSA has fucked it up (later thread about that) I will avoid to go to the U.S. if it is possible. Uh, and at the same time some Americans (tour operators f.e.) told me the tourists are just starting to arrive back after 911, they had two bad years etc. and now the tourism recovers they hope so at least.. well..


treating tourists like terrorists is not gonna bring them back. But howdy, I guess the Prez dont care.

Anyway. to get back to the point.

I am doing fine, have survived, and if thats my last message, the Contras have kidnapped me

Viva la revolucion!

Well, sh*t happens. Anyway, thanks, Justified! (you don't have to be sorry... the TSA better be sorry!)

At the moment I am in Nicaragua, in the old town of Granada. It is absolutely beautiful. Worth a visit.

A word of warning though with Costa Rica.. they are so used to mighty Americans throwing their $$ out of the window (like no one else) that they expect the same of the Europeans or other tourists.. things are getting expensive in Costa Rica. I have seen more than one American shagging out their 100$ bills.. please, when you go there, don't do it! Everything is (used to be) pretty cheap there. Now, wonderful beaches are ruined by big hotel chains with resorts... its awful, and the locals do not like it.

So please remember.. Costa Rica is not Vegas! Thanks.

The poverty in Nicaragua makes me sad. Poverty is a shame for every man, and especially for every Christian.

ABEL: I was in Dallas on the 15th of July, it was just via Dallas to SFO (did a stop in LAX though, because the planes were late.. that time for the weather not for the TSA.. ah but u know. its all good now.

Sherry Darling: I am very muck looking forward to your visit, please stay as long as you can, I am sure we will have a lot to speak about and who knows maybe we can do some project.. I just met wonderful Americans here in Granada.. they are doing a scholl project here, investing their own money to help the kids learn to read and write and the adults to build up micro businesses.. its very cool. Bill, who has been organizing this for years, has cancer.. and still he invests 25 grand per year to keep it going.. and you should see his eyes. I ll tell u more when we meet.

oktobergirl: yes, you are right. Ivan has been hitting hard. I havent heard from my friends there, and I am a little worried..

Sherry Darling: stay safe tonight.. its so nice that you say so.. I am really improving the criminal statistics of the countries I am in, since I got robbed again.. on the 10th, in the night, 3 guys with bikes and knives. But they just took my camera (second time so I bought my third camera now which is kind of weird.. one every month lol) and they took my watch, an 8 $ watch I had bought in Kingston, so I had to get a new one here for 9 $.. ehm yeah. And they took my cap. The cap you can see on the pictures above.

Like everyone can imagine 9/11 wasnt a good day for me. But since there are so many nice people here (last but not least the Americans who are really doing a good thing with that project!) I found back to my belief soon enough, today I saw Managua, the main city of Nicaragua, just going by taxi.

They have a park here, its called Parque de la Paz - Peace Park - and there is a tank and dozens of truckloads of AK 47, buried deep under cement-stone they were putting over. Its a symbol of peace and quite an impressing one. I think it is a wonderful idea and it looks fasciniating to see those weapons buried.

Tomorrow I might go to a prison where the Contras were slaughtering the Sandinistas.. it is said there is still blood on the walls.. I have heard it is very touching.

This country has so many edges. It is rough. And still, the people are so friendly.. when I told an old woman on the market about my experience when being stolen, she just said "Si amor",.. "Yes Love"...

Well I just tried to send you mail but actually my brain doesnt work, I got the ending of your email wrong probably.. edu.com.ni or something.. its because we havent been writing mails for some months, and I dont have access to my outlook at the moment.

So please drop me a mail and we can work it out!
