From Bullfighting in Medellin Sorry about the quality of this picture. This was early on my trip and I really had no idea how to work my camera. On this one, the bullfight was inside at night with poor lighting and that’s why it looks so off. In another fit […]
One of the fascinating things on the road is how products that we are used to from back home are slightly different around the world. Potato chips being a good example.
