    1981. Russia hadn’t fallen yet. The place was all so dreary and everything was gray. The food was bland. The people all looked like they were suffering from a chronic case of depression and alcoholism. Not to mention they took my passport and wouldn’t let me out of the country in the middle of the night! Interogating me for hours with BS questions.

    November 2002 in Mon Cai, Vietnam near the China border.
    I’m sorry Michelle, I don’t mean to say that Vienam isn’t nice for me, the country scenes are beautiful, but my bad souvenir in MOn Cai was that I afraid to death when the Vietnamese hotel clerk telling me that they lost my passport. I got to wait for a few days to get my passport back.
    Since, I’m afraid to go back to Vietnam again, sorry to say that:)

    The most beautiful place I have ever been to was no other than my beloved Angkor Wat of Cambodia. The worst place I have been to was Basilan Island, Philippine. Smell of bake fishes in the morning with coconut oil, arose with tropical humidity, and smell of feces coming from nearby toilet. And worry about my head being cut off by those bandits.

    Lost 10 minute in back alley of Bangkok shanty makeshift shack. The balmy stench of stagnant open sewage boil under hot sun was thick enough to choke you instantaneously. I ask the driver to return me to the hotel across the airport.

    What is a typical Yugoslavian entree??

    I envision Russia as a little bit depressing….but not as dreary as you described. How long were you interrogated for?

    Don’t you know that when you stay at the hotel during your visit in Vietnam your passport will be removed automaticly by the hotel manager? That’s the Viet gov’t rule for all tourists who stay at the hotel during their stay in Vietnam.

    Besides, food in N.Vietnam has no taste, I mean it’s not spicy, it tastes like the Monk’s food.
    No wonder most of the Vietnameses are so skinny.:)

    Stay with relatives in L.A. for a week in an unfamiliar area. I likened it to a war zone.

    Lost in Queens late at night driving around with a friend. Pulled up to a stop at a traffic light. Black dude came up to my little Fiero. Made me very nervous. Motioned to me to roll down the window; I did. He asked for for change. I was thinking of telling him if you want change, get your ass out of this ghetto neighborhood and get an education. Found some coins in my change holder and gave it to him. Looked up and saw green light. I couldn’t get out of there soon enough.

    I met a couple who visited Romania. They said it was the most despairing place they had ever travelled to, even compared to third world countries in Africa and Asia. Public restrooms were infested with druggies whose bodies were ravaged by disease…hunger was everywhere they turned… they showed me pictures, and I would definitely agree with them.

    The hotels we stayed are nice. A big surprise is that the Vietnamese people are very intergrated by the the western culture. Every restaurant and bar, there is always piano playing and candlelight ambiance looks like in the western country. It’s hard to believe a communist country like Vietnam, you can find such ambiance in hotels and restaurants.:)

    I doubt all of russia was like that.These sattilite countries were being really oppressed back then. Also keep in mind I was returning from the beautiful islands of Greece. But yea. I was taking the Majic Bus (Psychodelic busline (c: )from Greece though Yugoslavia to Italy.
    When you get to the border to leave the country they stop the bus, take everybodies passports and check you out. They gave everyone on the bus theirs back except mine and a couple from Canada.They took me inside and interogated me for 4-5 hours in the middle of the night.They made a bunch of phone calls to intimidate me and asked me a bunch of BS questions. Their excuse was that the name one my eurail pass didnt match my passport. But it was just my name was misspelled by 2 letters.

    What you realize immediatly is that although its all BS, you are in their country and you have NO rights! So BS counts. Eventually they left us go. When the bus pulled out evrybody started chanting A-holes A-holes! I was apologizing for holding everybody up all night.. but others who made the trip before said they do that regularly to make the rest of the passengers hate north americans. But everybody was cool and blamed them not us. I imagine it’s not like that anymore. Russia fell but then they had the civil war .It’s a good story now. But at the time it wasn’t !

    Got lost in LA, looking for the flower district and drove around looking for it all night long. Stopped at 3am and asked for directions, saw a few ladies walking the street and asked them for directions, mind you it’s 1am, I don’t know what they were doing, but they gave me a dirty look when I asked where the flower district was.

    Still couldn’t find it, went to China town and ate at 3am…finally got the right direction from the cook who ate with us, apparently this restaurant opens pretty late except we were the only two customers. Finally found it at 4am, slept near skid row with one eye close and the open and all this to save a few bucks on taxes!!
