Here's the plan: I leave September 1st, go down to San Diego, cross that border, and then I'm in Mexico! I'll go down Mexico to Central America, go through all the countries there, then into South America. I want to make it to Rio di Janero in Brazil by Carnival, to meet some very good friends. We'll see what kinds of adventures I have...
Well, now I'm back. I finally did make it to Rio, ten months later. I had the most amazing and unexpected adventures in between, during, and after. In the end, I went to 16 countries, and traveled for 13 months. It feels good to be home and rest for a while. Now I'm working on recording a rap album about my travels and the things learned, discovered, and realized. I'll be putting new songs up on my website.
I've been back in the states almost a year now, recording my albums--one with my brother, the other a solo rap album. Also, working on my photos. You can check it out on my website,
I cured the travel bug from my 13 month trip, but, the cure seems only temporary, and after a year at home, I've been reinfected. What can you do? I have a one way ticket to Buenos Aires, Argentina, and I'm taking it from there. I have no idea what this trip will be, except I want to record an album in Spanish, and get back up to Colombia...only time will tell.

Hi, I'm in Thailand! Made it after the longest sunset of my life. We were chasing the sun over to Japan, so it was setting for about 10 hours! I was tired, but got in and got a good sleep. Went over the mountains of Alaska and Russia--amazing! I'll write more later when I get a chance! My internet session is almost up.... read more

WARNING: THIS BLOG MAY BE DISTURBING TO SOME. IF YOU ARE OFFENDED BY IMAGES OF HAMSTERS BEING COMPRIMISED, PLEASE CLOSE THIS BLOG IMMEDIATELY. I DIDN'T MEAN TO OFFEND ANYONE, ONLY TO EXPOSE THE REALITY THAT HAMSTERS ARE NOT TREATED EQUALLY THE WORLD OVER. SO PLEASE CLOSE THIS WINDOW RIGHT AWAY FOR YOUR OWN BENEFIT. THANK YOU. Yes indeed, it is the humans who traffic the hamsters. You see, in Colombia, hamsters are free to choose their own bowl and if you put your money on it, you win! (See the hamster races) But now I must expose the seedy underbelly of Ecuador, and enlighten you to what happens to these adorable hamsters when they are exported south of the border. An important note, my sister pointed out to me that these aren't hamsters; technically they are ... read more

So, here I am in Medellin, Colombia, which once used to be the drug trafficking capital of the world. Well, it’s settled down a considerable bit, and last year was considered the safest city in Latin America. Funny how things change. Colombia used to be a violent country, but now, a lot of that has passed, and just in the last few years, it has been accessible to visitors. A lot of places that are closed off like that turn out to be the best to visit, I find. I’m always a big fan of off the track travel. You find the most authentic people, cultures, and experiences. As Colombia has just opened up, a lot of people are now visiting here and falling fast in love. There are many places in the world to fall ... read more
