A wonderful trip but beware. Kidnappings along that very same trail have sky-rocketed in the last three years as local gangs being pushed from the drug trade are trying to recoup lost income with ransoms. Entire groups of tourists have been attacked, so there really isn't safety in numbers anymore there. The best time to do this unfortunately was about 20 to 25 years ago. Now, its definitely risky, especially if you don't have rich relatives to bail you out.
The BEST classical station in the US for sure.
Anybody who uses the word F*** in their second email to a company's customer service I have no pity for.
I normally love nature photos. But these are so incredibly vibrant and "perfect" they just annoy me. Too much re-touching = too little that's natural left to enjoy.
Top 5 lists are never accurate. Most dangerous 5? Hardly. There are plenty of more dangerous roads not as well known as these (Naray to Kamdesh to Mandigal in Afghanistan for instance). Still, a good effort.
Full compilation of the 13 episodes (some unaired) of the series "Firefly"
These "fact" sites need to be boycotted. My god, how many are out there? 100? 200? more? And all the same untrue garbage rehashed for a new site.
Average at best. And not very interesting or alluring.
Poo-poo the CIA all you want, that's your opinion, and personally, I don't care. However, they do put together an excellent country reference for travellers. Link it with the CDC site and you have travel health covered as well.
Right up (or down) there with the George Carlin and Al Gore lectures....fake. (and not all that funny).
Where's the Odyssey 2000 (pong)?
Simplistic satire. Satire only really works if it more subtle and more complex than this superficial attempt.
From the page: "News World Communications Inc." - Could the news of this world be influenced by the Moon? News World Communications is a newspaper publishing company owned by the Reverend Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church. The company publishes "The Washington Times," which reaches more than 100,000 readers in the Washington, DC, area. It also produces the news magazine Insight Magazine, as well as international publications "The Middle East Times" (Cairo) and "Tiempos del Mundo" (weekly Spanish-language newspaper distributed in Latin America and the US). In 2000 the company added struggling news service United Press International to its portfolio. Moon began publishing the "Times" in 1982, but has reportedly lost more than $1 billion on the venture.
Very odd interface. OK information.
Average, at best. Plenty of other really good photographers with sites out there.
Are there versions of this for all the other countries on earth? I'd like to see some of them. Germany - "Go ahead, get in these railcars, its safe...trust me". Or Cambodia - "All you productive members of society, get out of the cities, join us in these lovely fields for the weekend".
Lesson you narrow-minded folks - ALL countries use propaganda. Get over it, and start examining your own news before judging other countries as being worse than your own.
An absolutely FABULOUS series.....about to be brought down by the simplification of gameplay designed for the XBox360. This is not a hit on the Consoler crowd, but rather a rant on what Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo can make great companies do, just by throwing money around. I may still be wrong (I hope so), but so far, Oblivion is looking like a twitchfest for the short-attention-span crowd.
