  • How a one week getaway turns into a month vacation

    May 6, 2008

    So there we were, planning a one week getaway to Munich for Oktoberfest. Drinking all that fine beer and coming back to wonderful Germany sounded like a great idea. So great, that we’ve been extending our plan by days at a time. If we can change our return flight, we are now looking at a […]

    Thanks to Diego, I have just finished watching a very interesting documentary called Loose Change, produced by Korey Rowe, Dylan Avery, and Jason Bermas.

  • Argentina: 3.71 % of its population affected by traffic accidents every 10 years

    April 27, 2006

    I am shocked. I just read a study saying that in Argentina, during 2005, 14,526 people died and more than 120,000 were injured just by traffic accidents. That is: 39 deaths and 328 injured per day. This sickening high number puts Argentina as the country with by far the most number of traffic accidents. Between […]
