In Search Of The Real Lost World: Scaling Mount Roraima

My trek the top of Mount Roraima was an accidental adventure. Serendipitous? Yes. Rewarding? No doubt about it. However, there were times when I would have given anything to be anywhere other than on that mongrel of a mountain in Venezuela. A table-top mountain or mesa — synonymous with this […]

Climbing Rio’s Sugar Loaf James Bond Style

I had been enchanted with Sugar Loaf Mountain ever since I saw it in the 1979 James Bond film Moonraker, in which Bond battles with Jaws on a cable car traveling up Rio de Janerio’s most famous landmark (along with the Christ the Redeemer statue that sits at its top). […]

My Salsa Lessons From A Prostitute In Colombia

“Dude, if you wanna meet local girls you gotta be able to dance.” I avoided the tango in Buenos Aires, but it’s going to be hard to avoid salsa in the Caribbean. “I hate dancing.” “You’ve just gotta move your hips.” “I’ll need a few more of these first.” I […]

Ideas For Travel To South America This Fall

Is there nothing better than shipping off on a red-eye flight in the depth of a cold winter night and arrive, half-a-day later far on the other side of the Equator (assuming you’re coming from the north) in warm South America? Plants are budding, locals are excited about the onset […]

Travelers have been visiting Machu Picchu for 100 years now, ever since Yale University professor Hiram Bingham III rediscovered the site on July 24, 1911.

My 10 Ways To Revamp Argentina’s Top 10 Foods

Every food needs a little evolutionary jump-start once in a while. As a fan of mash-ups (some of my favorite foods include shepherd’s pie and bubble & squeak — a post-Thanksgiving swirling concoction of leftovers), I think that combining one’s culinary cultural upbringing with that of another can only bring about good […]
