millions of foreigners visit Colombia every year, their consensus is that Colombians are very friendly. That would be not the case if any stranger would blow scopolamine in your face. Getting scopolamine in your drink is already not very common, getting it blown in your face is much less frequent.

>I heard they were much more developed , and a bit more white.

no, maybe there was a time when Argentina was much more developed than the rest of LatAm, but, since then, pretty much the rest of Latin America has been closing the gap. Argentina is on an ongoing crisis again with rising poverty, hiperinflation etc. Countries like Panama, Costa Rica or Mexico already have lower poverty rates than Argentina.

Chile was as underdeveloped and poor as the rest of Latam until like 1990, then the country took off, but it's not "much more developed" now. The difference in wealth between Chile and, say, Colombia, it's like the one there is between Croatia and Serbia. Latin America is probably the region in the World with less disparity in development between countries.

Anyway if you look at, let's say, the list of countries of the region by homicide rate, you'll see there is not much correlation between development and murder rate. Uruguay has higher homicide rate than: the Dominican Republic, Panama, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Argentina, Paraguay and Chile.

Argentina is more White than most of LatAm. Chile is not, it has the same amount of Whiteness as Colombia, Venezuela or Paraguay.

Traveling to Medellin soon, can you tell me more about how you organized the hookers? I’m assuming not escorts for that price, is there a tolerance zone then? I am not going primarily for that reason to Medellin (perhaps only 5th reason) but it would be nice to know

Well like any other foreign county knowing the language always help to make things smoother. Of course that you won't die if you don't know anything about nip since you'll probably stick to the most touristy places anyway, but I would recommend at least getting familiar with the most basic stuff like directions, time and ordering food/buying stuff.

A lot of people had much better English than I expected.

I have a particular question about Egypt. In some of the cities I have an interest in visiting the more densely populated outskirt areas, most parts of the cities where zero tourists would have any desire or need to go to. Reasons aren't really important, but I'm wondering if there's a way to hire a more general guide to some if these neighborhoods. Somebody to inform me about streets to stay away from, talk to locals, give valuable info ect ect. How would I go about doing this? Hire some guy off the street?

Prices are quite expensive but it's so much more enjoyable. That way, holidays start in the airport already.

I can only really compare the US with the UK, but the US federal government alone spends more on healthcare (per capita and as a proportion of GDP) than the UK government does. For that money the US gets fairly mediocre healthcare for a certain qualifying segment of the population (medicare/medicaid), native Americans, prisoners and veterans while the UK gets a fairly decent, comprehensive healthcare for all its citizens. Americans already pay for healthcare in their taxes, just generally not their own.

And thousands of flights that were fine.

Yes, but how many because of the car itself ?
The fear comes from the fact that despite having a fully qualified person on control, the plane crashes by itself.
Imagine a world where cars are driven by professionals only. I guess the number of accident would be quite low.

Yes, under construction is nice. Abandoned? Not so much. But you gotta get out of there before daybreak because construction workers usually start early and they often have their own security crew that will enthusiastically restrain you until police arrive.

Yeah all the time when i was tramping all over Europe, hitch hiking and workaway etc.

Bridges, especially comfy secluded ones, were great way to stay out of sight, out of the weather and even get a nice sleep.

Construction zones are ok, but be prepared to be awake early. i once got woken up by a very confused looking Danish Tradesmen once.

He didn't get banned from anything, and he didn't die in a jail cell.

From the FoxNews article:
> reportedly died of an unspecified illness while on a beach vacation on the island of Koh Samui

He was a fucking landwhale and he died after some sort of leg injury. Most likely, he was diabetic and got an infection going in the injury, which then went septic.

>Nothing of value was lost.

Well, you got one thing right anyway.

>>1579940
Out of his ass, apparently. He should've been more alpha and gotten a flight attendant to remove it for him.

Any southern connoisseurs on /trv/?

We're three european duderinos planning to do at 11~ish day long road trip in the southern USA.
The hard part is planning a route, considering we don't know much about the south.

Which cities is a MUST to visit? Also, what is a do-able route?

So far we've been thinking something along the lines of:
Miami -> Everglades -> Clearwater -> (maybe Orlando) -> Mobile -> New Orleans.
Is this a good route? Or are we fucking up by missing Atlanta, Savannah, Charleston, Augusta, Jacksonville etc.

A but add Houston and their dozens of new breweries.
Consider: 8th wonder (hip, rich, young), Baleson (for an older, tasteful neighborhood bar vibe)
Flying Saucer: (100000000 taps of beer, great waitresses, intellectual drunks head there)

Austin: Zilker Brewery (get the stout and some trendy merchandise)
Lazarus Brewery and nearby bars/restaurants late night older/intellectual/babes crowd
Oasis Brewing (out by a scenic lake)

This will work for any airline that has no internet in their planes along with a food menu.

All you need is a canceled credit card, it works because the internet is down and can't verify if it was accepted or not. I've done it around 5 times now and I've gotten cloee to $150 worth of free shit.
