Fried Colombian Ants

If you’re into fried ants, Colombia is right for you! The ants being eaten there are rather big and are called Hormigas Culonas (~big ass ants). They are also available in lemon or barbecue flavour! We had these ants for breakfast in San Gil, Santander in central Colombia. How gorgeous they taste!

Picture of Carnival in Colombia

The biggest carnival in Colombia takes place in Barranquilla and it’s supposed to be the second biggest of the world after Rio de Janeiro. This picture was taken in Taganga near Santa Marta.

Jet Lag Sleep

Time difference +100,000,000,000,000 hours – hence clear effects of jet lag here. Seen at Venice Beach, California. For getting over jet lag we recommend: Drink plenty of water before, during and after the flight to avoid dehydration. Don’t drink lots of alcohol or take unnecessary medication while in flight. Sleep well before the flight and during long …

Bavarian Beer London

There are not so many Bavarian beer houses in London – although German beer is available in most of the pubs. Checking a London restaurant guide you might find maybe 3-4 proper German restaurants in London (the rest is rubbish bratwurst fake, mind you there’s a new one in Soho where I had Bratwurst Nachos the other day). This picture …

Boring History

A day in the Imperial War Museum London in Southwark. By the way the most boring day in history was April 11, 1954.

Tesco Fan

Clearly Tesco fans! Taken at the royal wedding festivities – William and Kate – London Hyde Park 2011.

Streets Of Barcelona

There are some street performers in Barcelona. This is a picture was taken at Las Ramblas in the most exciting city of the world.

The Welsh People

There are no welsh people physical characteristics but spiritual ones. They are really nice people – go to Wales and enjoy the culture! (never mind the language)

Kissing A Horse

This is a picture of a girl kissing a horse. I like that the kiss is making the horse smile. Taken in Martin’s Haven, Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK. [hr] There’s also this poem: Kissing a Horse [quote]Of the two spoiled, barn-sour geldings we owned that year, it was Red— skittish and prone to explode even at fourteen years—who’d …

How To Run A Marathon

This girl was running a marathon dressed as a rhino. She must have done some serious training since this costume looks really heavy. Remember how long is a marathon run: 42.195 kilometres (26 miles) I found her at the London Marathon 2011.

After The Garden Gnome Carnage

Wondering what games to play in the garden? Try to find and take pictures of evil garden gnomes in your back garden – this creepy angry one was hiding in the very back. Ok, it’s not a garden gnome since: [unordered_list style=”tick”] A garden gnome or lawn gnome is a figurine of a small humanoid …

HDR Cow

A cow in the Bavarian mountains (alps). (High dynamic range (HDR) is a set of techniques that allow a greater dynamic range of luminance between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than current standard digital imaging techniques or photographic methods)

Tunnelvision

This one was taken at the Notting Hill Carnival 2010. I like the accidentally great lighting of this guy. I don’t know the causes of tunnel vision but I can see symptoms of tunnel vision at this guy. Or so…

Go Fly A Kite

Clapham Common in London is perfect for flying a kite. Vast elevated plain and almost always wind blowing.

Nude Bike Ride

It is intimidating to face thousands of naked bike riders but it’s a good and strong reminder of the vulnerability cyclists face in car dominated London. And if you’re a streaker it’s a great opportunity to get your paler bits out in central London and not be arrested for it. For photographers obviously a great …

Colombian Landslide & RichardAlois

Sometimes travelling in buses in Colombia takes longer than expected. Anyway it’s super painful to wade through a landslide since it consists of rather sharp crushed rocks and mud. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of me when I cross the mudslide… Taken between Cali and Buenaventura.

Guinea Pig Race

Guinea pigs (cavies) need regular exercise to stay healthy. This guinea pig game takes place in Bogota Colombia. More guinea pig racing here:

Tightrope Walker Falls

Tightrope walking normally means walking along a rope, sometimes also at a great height. Here there was no great height or the Niagara falls involved (no death neither just a little accident). Taken in Mexico City at the Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Flight from Hell

My trip was horrible. The plane was struck by lightning which considerably delayed the scheduled arrival time!
