New England Patriots Fans Unite.  I have been a Pats fan since the Grogan days while growing up outside Boston.  And some of those days were pretty lean.  Of course, the football gods have blessed all Bostonians under the holy trinity of Kraft-Belichick- Brady.  And over the years, I have taken my Patriots game on the [...]

Two Nights Niger

Two nights Niger.  I wasn’t overly excited about my brief trip to Niamey, Niger.  I arrived late at night to the Diori Hamani International Airport via a direct flight from Algiers.  I passed immigration without any obstacles except for a brief argument with a gentleman who tried to cut the line.  As I waited for my [...]

Haircuts Around The World

Haircuts Around World.  Twenty dollars!  Actually, twenty-four dollars with the tip.  That is the price for my haircut at the barbershop near my apartment in Chicago.  There is no heavy lifting involved; 20 or 25 minutes and I am out the door.  I am a bit of a value shopper, maybe even a bit cheap.  In [...]

Three Days Paraguay

Three Days Paraguay. Paraguay might be considered one of the ugly stepsisters of South America, with less than 650,000 tourists visiting this landlocked country. On this southern continent, Paraguay is only more popular than Guyana and Suriname, not household names for tourists. I spent three nights in Asuncion, the sleepy, river-based capital. Asuncion is an acquired [...]
