For the last few days I’ve been working on my application for the Glimpse Correspondent Program. I’ve gone through all of my old photos, picked out my favorites, and touched them up. I now have a total of thirty-three pictures. The problem is, I need to narrow my submission down to twenty. If you have a minute, it would be a great help if you could look through the photos and leave a comment telling me which photos you think I should keep, and which I should trash, and why.
When I first moved to Taiwan I was fascinated with everything. I walked around stupefied, a silly grin permanently plastered to my face, amazed at the incredible world that I had discovered. That lasted for about three years.
Well, I finally arrived in Guatemala. When I say finally I mean that I arrived after:
– A twelve hour bus ride from Cranbrook to the Calgary airport (don’t even ask why it took so long).
Every travel writer asks himself, “Why do I travel?” I first asked myself this question while on the road from Mexico to Guatemala.
I had been pondering the question while riding in a collectivo, which is essentially a mini-bus crammed so full of Mexican’s carrying children and chickens that it seems ready to burst. It had been a long time since my last trip, and I’d only been on the road for a few days, so I was still getting back into the swing of traveling. We were driving from the Mexican city of Tapachula to the Guatemalan border.
