72. six feet under

brunch at fatty's. chose the wrong dish though: when i ordered french toast, i was hoping to get something more for 10 bucks, than two syrupfloating toasts sprinkled with pecan nuts, 6 blueberries and one strawberry. so i don't know if it was the toast or the acutal fact that i was staring at dead bodies without skin at the ...

71. drivin on nite

the car is not always your best friend. tonight we were going to a cinema that was going to show life aquatic, but we never made it on time. we got totally lost and couldn't find the god damn place. eventually we found it, but that was one hour after the film had started so instead i bought a map ...

63. return or not return

that is the question. does anyone know if you HAVE to show a return ticket when you enter usa? on some website it says you have to. it would suck so much if i have to because i am not going back the same way, to tokyo. my plan was to slide over to nyc and then maybe go back ...

Tallin, Moscow, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk, Beijing, Shanghai and Tokyo rules and rocks. London sucks! Maybe not but it is of course weird to be back here. Thank god for Chelsea (the girl).

54. Ok, the capsule story.

A capsule hotel is a Japanese solution to a lot of people on a small area. Japan is not very big country geographically, the 374,744 sq km land contain 127,333,002 people. Tokyo holds 28 million and even though Tokyo is huge, space has to be rationed. This solution availiable to business men who stay briefly somewhere is this ...

53. Make it look good…

One s self steem takes a painful fall when it arrives in Japan. If you think you re cool in in London or whereever in your freaky shoes or Supreme sweater but you can lick the soles of any kid on the street here because everybody is so goddam cool it hurts. I came last night from Shanghai with that ...

52. Love Will Tear Us Apart

Some of you might recall back in 2002 when me and Lesley Pennert were rampaging abround Asia, a sudden split in our paths. Lesley jumped on that hard sleeper train and ended up freezing and broke in northern China and me, going on a pilgrimage in Tibet. When travel partners decide to go different directions, it does not mean they ...

49. No, come on, give me good price, we’re friends right?

Shopping in China is, if you look at it historically, not the first thing you think of when you visit the country. But as the new economy is based on cunsumption in China, it is a pretty big thing. I got my first taste of it two years ago when I visited the soutwest and west when I found all ...

48. food, the chinese and snoaring

everytime i went to noodle king in london i thought, "why are they giving out so big portions all the time? this can't be good for you and it can't be chinese. in china everyone is thin and good looking." i was so wrong! after three days in beijing the smallest dish was like noodle king sized. the biggest, well ...
