Another Hot Wheels purchase

I found this at a local drug store. I know nothing about the 934.5.

Now I have to worry about the Gulf Clan

Last week, the Colombian military seized 12 tons of cocaine worth $360,000,000-- the largest seizure in history.

The cocaine belonged to the Gulf Clan, a crime syndicate descended from right-wing paramilitaries. The cocaine was found in the area between Chigorodo and Carepa, right on my bus route from Medellin to Turbo. In fact, I'll be flying out of Apartado airport, which has been used by the Gulf Clan for some of its shady business. Neat!

My new car mugs

More carspotting from China

Quick, Ramon, what's the second car?

And we're back

We just got back from a 4-day trip to Vegas to visit family. I got a facial for the first time at a spa and it was a transformative experience. Junior and I also got kicked out of a casino.

Two more trips in the coming months. In December, we go to Maui. In January, I go on my bus trip.

Documentary about Rio to Lima long distance bus

A big thanks to Ramon for telling me about this documentary. It shows exactly why I enjoy these bus trips so much.

I won't be posting for four days, so enjoy this while I'm gone!

Bonus: It's narrated by that English speaker in all those Auto Motor Und Sport videos.

Random cars parked in Beijing

A friend is on vacation there and I asked her to take some pictures of cars. She sent these.
