Laredo y Tejas

In an earlier post I alluded to weekly business travel to Laredo, Texas. When thinking about what I could post about Laredo, its been very difficult.  Not one of those if you don’t have anything nice to say moments… … just, there is not much going on down here.  Even for a border town.  So […]

Drunk LUV

Its not often I talk about the weekly business travel I now do each week. For the most part, its pretty uneventful trips to Laredo, Texas from Kansas City for work.

‘Round The World Q&A

As a person – especially as an American – who took extended time to travel around the world, you get a lot of questions.  From friends and family at home of course but also from those on the road.  There are not many Americans out there quitting good jobs, leaving houses, cars, friends, comforts…leaving “home”…to […]

The Long Way Home…
