Everette's Guestbook

23rd May 2015

I really enjoyed reading this post. I will be traveling for 2 weeks in Bolivia this July, and the first leg of my journey will be similar to yours. My fiance and I will fly into Santa Cruz, then travel to Cochabamba, La Paz, then Lake Titicaca. The outline of our trip is starting to shape up, but any advice you could offer would be much appreciated. I need to figure out specifics for each city, such as travel to and from, activities, food, and lodging... I would certainly appreciate any advice you might like to offer.

I finally sat down and looked through some of the photos you have posted. Needless to say, they are amazing. How fortunate you are to be able to enjoy all these beautiful places and people. I'm looking forward to the photos from Ireland. That is my dream vacation. I'd love to visit the western coast, stay in a cottage and mingle with the locals at a real "pub"!

Communism vs Socialism
One definition of Communism is "extreme Socialism." Cubans get very cheap food, free education, free med, cheap transportaion, subsidized/free housing--even free funerals. In a recent "legal" trip to Cuba, I saw the results of Communism--squalor and poverty, virtually no cars or motorbikes. There is no incentive to work-no ambition. MDs and degreed architects make abot $40 per month (US equiv). Why would anyone bother to train to be a profession? Best-pay comes from tips as a tour guide--a bus driver gave up his Dentistry practice, because he makes more in a week or two (tips) than he does as in a year as a dentist. Everyone seems to be happy with their "free stuff." Think Joe the Plumber and "income redistribution." Reminds me of the Democrats. Oh well, you got what you voted for. Saul Alinsky would be proud.

Your photos, etc.
Hi Everette! I enjoyed reading your blog and looking at the interesting photos! For me, I think it would be very depressing to live in such a place with so much oppression of individual freedoms. I'm happy that they can express themselves with music of some kinds, and other art forms, but I could not live like that. Cuba will never make enough money to lift upthe people out of endless squalor and hopefulness. The limited interaction b/t Americans and the few Cubans must be extraordinarily exciting for them. Walts gifts must have made them very happy! Like my oldest sister used to say, "That's another star in your crown". Doing such a simple thing as giving some caps and tees will influence those folks in incalculable ways! Blessings for you and yours, Everette!

The women who saved Walt
So glad to make your acquaintance and to read of your travels. I'm one of the Wednesday Scotch and Cigar crew. I basically rant and get smoke blown on me but I love hanging with old timers like Walt. He is always very honest about his life experiences. He told us that you saved his life. There is no higher praise that I can think of. Hugs to you my new friend. Enjoy Cuba.

Nice to know you're enjoying Tokyo! We love the photos! You should ride the shinkansen (bullet train) to compare it with the one you rode from St. Petersburg. You can take the train all the way to Iwakuni, and visit the Marine Corps Air Station, which is a few miles south of Hiroshima. Across from Hiroshima, you can visit the Miyajima island with the famous Torii. Space-A is also available from MCAS Iwakuni. Further south, you can also visit Nagasaki, which is also near US Naval Station Sasebo, on the island of Kyushu. BTW, you can also take a ferry from Kyushu into South Korea. Enjoy!

Wow! Edgar, thanks for all the cool information. We are going to try to fly out day after tomorrow. Some of these ideas may have to be saved for our next trip. I wish I had asked you more questions before you headed home. Thanks again, Everette

Everette, One hundred blog entries is very impressive. I\'ve certainly enjoyed keeping up with you over the years. Is it just me or does Dad look a little like Ghengis in the photo of you two in front of the statue? Thanks and have fun, Brian

What at train trip....
it does not sound like the Trans-Siberian train has changed much since we did it nearly 25 years ago. They did have a dining car then...not great but it was the only food we had since we had not taken any with us. looking forward to sharing stories. c

I always thought that the eastern part of Russia was considered to be in Asia. On Travelblog, Russia is only listed under Europe. I am not sure why.

Your Blog
I enjoyed reading your blog and seeing the photos, especially of the train.
