Friday's Hike

El Camino Del Rey
El Caminito del Rey (English: The King's little pathway) is a walkway or via ferrata, now fallen into disrepair, pinned along the steep walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro, near Álora in the district of Málaga, Spain. The name is often shortened to Camino del Rey.

The walkway has now gone many years without maintenance, and is in a highly deteriorated and dangerous state. It is 3 ft wide, and is over 700 feet (200 m) above the river. Nearly all of the path has no handrail. Some parts of the walkway have completely collapsed and have been replaced by a beam and a metallic wire on the wall. Many people have lost their lives on the walkway in recent years. After four people died in two accidents in 1999 and 2000, the local government closed the entrances. However, adventurous tourists still find their way into the walkway. The regional government of Andalusia budgeted in 2006 for a restoration plan estimated at € 7 million

Hacking the Planet


Made a friend in one of my hostels here in England who knows a lot about computers. For a week or two everyday I'd sit there working, and he'd sit there stealing peoples passwords, getting into the hostels booking system where he could see everyones information, rearrange reservations, and take stored credit card numbers (he didnt, but he could have), or learning how to do new stuff. He found 1 password for facebook which we found funny, "ILoveMen". We logged into the account, checked out the profile pic, then looked around the room and found the guy sitting right behind us.

So I'm sitting in the lounge at my hostel in Munich this afternoon at about 4pm, thinking about how retarded I am from the alcohol last night, when an actual retarded person walks in.

Giant Chinese Spider


This bad boy sent my Danish friend running away screaming like a girl. A young Chinese boy came out with a broom and a can of poison, sprayed the thing while beating it with the broom for about 5-10 seconds. It ran down the wall, across the hall and almost made it to the stairs before the it died.

Tunnel From Russia to USA?


Plan for a tunnel connection under the Bering Strait between Siberia and Alaska


I had no idea we were so close to Russia, 60 miles!!! I wonder if they'll loosen visa requirements for Americans travelling to Russia if this happens.

Turkish Haircut


My first Turkish Haircut back in 2008

My cousin is getting married Friday, so I got a fresh hair cut on Tuesday. Using hand signals (I can't speak to anyone) I worked out the following:

  • 15 minutes of cutting with a buzzer
  • 20 minutes of cutting with scissors
  • 5 minutes waiting while the dude talked on his cell phone
  • 5 minute shampoo afterwards
  • 5 minute shoulder, neck, and back massage
  • 3 minutes of styling with hair gel
  • 5 minutes of a very excessive cologne and aftershave application

  • The last time I got my haircut in Turkey Casey Wedding convinced the guy to give me a mullet. This time I walked in with a euro-mullet and walked out sin mullet.

    Working the System


    Today I traded 1 delayed flight from Washington D.C. to JFK which probably never left due to bad weather (all other flights to NYC were cancelled already) for a refund and free round trip ticket anywhere in the continental US, then hopped on a $25 bus, where I am now using the free wifi and power outlets. I'll arrive in Brooklyn about 4 hours later than originally scheduled.

    Stray Dogs Roam Roman Bath Ruins



    Today is my second to last day in Ankara, and the weather was decent, which meant it was time to finish my sight seeing.

    Pictured below is the Ruins of an old Roman Bath, where I stumbled upon a pack of stray dog puppies amongst some ancient Roman tomb stones. The mother barked at me and ran away, then I noticed the puppies hidden between the cracks. A few puppies came out to say hello, and I figured the Mom was coming back with her homies, but instead she just hung out and barked with the rest of the adult strays in front of what I later found out is a whore house.

    Lightning Storm


    There was a cool lightning storm last night here in Ankara. I've always wanted to get a sweet picture of lightning, and I almost pulled it off last night. You can see the sky is lit and theres a bit of the lightning bolt in the top right corner. Then there was a 4.1 earthquake centered in Ankara a few hours later.
