Not all horror stories make the cut for travel journals. But when you have one with rats, roaches, giant waves, rickety boats, choppy weather and an amateur helmsman along the infamous narco route...you cannot NOT share it! What started as a somewhat unconventional decision to catch a speedboat from Panama to Colombia (instead of the usual options to get a sailboat or a direct flight) soon turned into one of the most harrowing journeys of my life! So here goes...my two cents on “How NOT to travel from Panama to Colombia - Part 2 of 2” 6. Find a small boat the next morning and get your ass handed to you on a 7 hour bumpy ride, which leaves you drenched from head to toe despite being covered in a plastic sheet...reminded me of the plastic sheets used by Dexter before every kill 😂 7. Stop midway on an island to refuel and clench your fists when you are told the boat will not go any further and, lo and behold, you get to spend another night on another run-down island, but this time only with rats 8. Find another tiny boat the next morning and pray for your life as you learn the clueless boat driver is on his maiden voyage and you almost get capsized thanks to a massive thunderstorm in the open seas...a la the “Almost Famous” plane crash scene where you think its almost over 😧 a Colombian guy on the boat spilled a few personal secrets while exhausting his cuss vocabulary on our driver 😆 9. Get strange looks from Panamanian guards at the Obaldia immigration office while they unpack every single item from your backpack to check for any contraband (pretty normal here given this is one of the main drug trafficking zones) and finally give you an exit stamp on your passport and also a pat on the back for making it this far in such severe weather 10. Time to bid adieu to the crazy seas...Land ahoy! Welcome to Colombia!!

So here goes...my two cents on “How NOT to travel from Panama to Colombia - Part 1 of 2” 1. Get a shared ride from Panama City to Puerto Carti, the Caribbean port in Panama along the San Blas islands 2. Kick off the ordeal by retiring for the night on a small island without any facilities, electricity or running water...and a bed right next to an iguana cage with flying roaches and rats 3. Wake up the next morning only to find that the boat driver is a bit “under the weather” (aka hungover 😆) and ergo you are stuck on the island; go to the port looking for alternatives and pin your hopes on the unpredictable speedboat schedule for the next morning 4. Still scarred by last night’s encounter with the exotic fauna, skip the island and prepare to sleep by the docks under the stars 5. Bump into a chatty cop who lends you a mattress for the night in exchange for long stories about his life, religion and drug de-addiction journey

Good afternoon all! ☀️ Hope everyone is doing great. On today's episode we covered another vintage crime that is one of the most well known in Brazil: the murders at the Little Castle on Apa Street. This building is known for being haunted and was left in disrepair for several years until the state started working to restore it back to its glory. __ The castle was built in 1912 by Virgílio Guimarães dos Reis for his wife Maria Cândida Guimarães. The couple had two sons, the lawyers Álvaro and Armando (the family is pictured above). On May 12th, 1937 the bodies of Maria Cândida, Álvaro and Armando were found in the castle next to a nine millimeter pistol. The crime itself remains unsolved but police speculated that Álvaro had killed both his mother and brother and then killed himself. The medical examiners, however, had a different theory in mind. ___ In 1988, the movie Fogo e Paixão (FIre and Passion) with legendary Brazilian actress Fernanda Montenegro (pictured above) was taped in the building, but shortly afterwards the castle was officially abandoned by the state. It served as shelter for homeless people for a certain period of time, until the NGO Clube de Mães do Brasil was given the right to use the building in 1996 thus starting its renovation project. The castle was opened to the public in April 2017 when the renovations were finalized and now serves as a community center to help homeless people, mothers, drug addicts, children and as a social services center. __ We hope you enjoy this episode.

and i think the saddest thing is how it is so much easier to just not say anything at all.

Comparto esto para quienes esten del otro lado de la cordillera 🗻🗻 El trabajo de Nicolás en ProyectoVeg fue muy inspirador para mi y para que surja 🌺 Latina à la folie 🌺 Quienes estén en Santiago y puedan asistir lxs insto a que lo hagan. Él encara estos temas de manera muy seria y profesional, y sobre todo sencilla. 💚 ------------------------------------------------------------ #Repost @fitness.vegano (@get_repost) ・・・ Y coooomenzamos con todo en esta segunda etapa!! 💪💪💪 En dos domingos más, haré una charla “Veganizadora”, diseñada para que esta los más insensibles y los que más desconozcan este tema, se sensibilicen por fin y tomen consciencia de lo necesario que es cambiar nuestra conducta abusiva en torno a la utilización de animales como objeto. Así que inviten a quienes les dicen que están locos por haber dejado de comer carne, o a quienes dicen que este cambio no es necesario, que es ridículo, etc… Aquí los enderezaremos 😉 Hagamos este cambio de consciencia entre todos. Donde??? Biblioteca Viva, en las terrazas del Mall Plaza Egaña, Santiago de Chile. Un abrazoooo!!! ! Muchas gracias por seguir ahí todo este tiempo!! (Atentos a youtube!! :O !!!)
