Eating Coco on the Streets of Granada, Nicaragua

www.youtube.com/watch?v=tschzFuImxU Rob and I were cruising through the market here in Granada yesterday afternoon and I stumbled upon this woman selling a flourescent pink, flaky, dry, protein-bar looking dessert. I stopped to take a closer look and considering I couldn’t understand what the woman was trying to tell me so I decided to just buy [...]

Otavalo Market in Otavalo, Ecuador

The Otavalo Market in Otavalo, Ecuador is South America’s largest market and on Saturdays the whole town comes out for an orgy of awesomeness. You can buy anything from snails and mystery meat to fake shrunken heads and dream catchers. For those of you who know about my addiction to markets you can understand what a great day this was for me in Otavalo. Checkout the video above and photos below to get a feel for the Otavalo Market experience. If you’re ever in Ecuador, take the 2 hour bus ride from Quito to Otavalo on a Saturday morning and experience true Ecuadorian culture at the Otavalo Market.

2 Years Deep in Buenos Aires, Argentina

This past Saturday marked the 2 year anniversary of Tourist2Townie.com and my quest to travel deeper. On October 1st, 2009 I left everything comfortable in my life in search of something more. My dream was to become part of a foreign community, learn new skills, meet new people and experience new adventures. Now, as I sit here writing this on the eve of my next mission, I think about that dream and how much this experiment has developed. The memories I’ve accumulated over the past 2 years are what fuel me to move forward, do more and constantly improve. I can’t wait to see what the future holds. The video above is a quick summary of the first chapter of my Tourist 2 Townie Experience – work and travel in Buenos Aires, Argentina. See you in Ecuador on Wednesday.

Un Dia En La Vida – Medellin, Colombia

While I’m happy to be home visiting friends and family for a few months, putting together this little piece really made me miss life back in Medellin. The music, food, language, culture and women… I fell in love with Colombia in the 5 short months of living in Medellin and I can’t wait to get back soon. I shot all the clips for this Medellin time-lapse video the day before returning to the States. I sat for 25 minutes at 20 different locations around Medellin and Envigado. I wish I had more footage of the housing and neighborhoods but for safety measures, I decided against. I actually ventured across town and up to one of the hoods of Medellin that afternoon to film, but with some advice from a local friend, I never took the camera out of my bag. Next time. As you can see at the very end …
