My Name is Michael Caine

This local court had met at “Elephant and Castle, Newington” on 21 March 1765. Previously the site was occupied by …

Mexican Police

“I am the law and I accept bribes.” In 2010 the least corrupt country was Singapore – the most corrupt country was Somalia. Mexico appears somewhere in the middle. Since the police salary is rather low and there’s the most exposure to bribery the federal police is normally amongst the most corrupt parts of a …

Brazilian Alcoholism

Stayed with this family in their hut + hammocks for some days in Brazil near Manaus. The guy was more or less drunk the whole time. His mother seems to haven given up on him?

Manaus To Belem By Boat

Clockwork Orange Meaning

A guy standing in front of the Trellick Tower in London Kensington looking like Alex: the movie’s anti-hero from Stanley Kubrick‘s Clockwork Orange.

A lack of free …

World War 2 Heroes

Interesting – you don’t want to hold a bomb on your chest – no easy life in submarines, me thinks. That’s brave and well deserved a vc medal. I don’t like that war shit but I like history and interesting facts.

Can Goldfish Live In A Bowl

This poor goldfish was found in Colombia in a shop where I used to cover my beer supply. Goldfish can live in a bowl but not long. In the best case, goldfish living in a bowl that is regularly cleaned will live for a couple of years.  The worst scenario is the fish will be …

Volcanic Mud Bath

These people come out of the mud volcano of Totumo. You can experience this mud bath photo near Cartagena, Colombia. Benefits of a mud bath are: soft skin and plenty of fun.
