CONVERSATION WITH MR STONE

GO VODKA!
I don't get why the hell this guy looks sad.  Hell, I look pretty happy!  Go vodka!



WATER

I've talked to so many tourists who have said things like "I think their water is OK" and "the natives drink their water and they're fine" and "I like to build up an immunity to the local bacteria".

They don't realize their water goes through LEAD pipes.

"I'm sure nobody will notice your decreased IQ - they'll be focusing on your laziness and cheapness."

"Duh?"


WHERE NEXT?

As usual, a lot depends on money.  South America drained quite a bit.  If the money situation is looking good, here is the possible route
If the money situation is not looking good, I'll have to figure out something clever.  I could either piss off back to Asia or end up staying in some small town in Albania for three months renting an apartment.  I don't know what will happen.  Part of the fun there.



SOME OF THE GOOD STUFF OFF THE NET
In case you missed it...



Any Star Trek TNG fans?


Must not overlook 'little people'...







CONVERSATION WITH MICHAEL STONE
Hell, someone other than he and I may be interested in reading it.

  • Michael Stone
    so how many times have you been mugged, or attempted to anyway?
  • Logan Horsford
    Logan Horsford
    Mugged? 0.
  • Michael Stone
    Michael Stone
    nice. I read the blurb you had on that site. good write up.
  • Logan Horsford
    Logan Horsford
    Which? The five best?
  • Logan Horsford
    Logan Horsford
    Glad you enjoyed it sir.
  • Michael Stone
    Michael Stone
    Thank you much. I enjoy living vicariously through you
    BTW, and I don't want to be rude, but my wife was curious when I was trying to explain your spinal condition, and I couldn't remember the name of it at all.
  • Logan Horsford
    Logan Horsford
    It's just another thing to say "If that mutherfucker can travel, what excuse do I have?"
  • Michael Stone
    Michael Stone
    right. a pretty good excuse too Have you tried to travel to the 'axis of evil' yet?
  • Logan Horsford
    Logan Horsford
    I may end up visiting with the Kurds in norther Iraq at some point. North Korea no interest and Iran would get me shot as a spy.
  • Michael Stone
    Michael Stone
    Where are you headed after your current location?
  • Logan Horsford
    Logan Horsford
    I'm thinking west. I'd like to get some Greek cooking into my belly but we'll see what I end up doing.
  • Michael Stone
    Michael Stone
    Oh nice. that would be an excellent place to visit, I love the ancient architecture
  • Logan Horsford
    Logan Horsford
    It'll be the second time I've been there. First was about 3 decades ago.
  • Michael Stone
    Michael Stone
    which country as been the most 'boring'?
    It sounds like south america was anything but, but not in a good way.
  • Logan Horsford
    Logan Horsford
    Most boring? Um. Aside from the cool nifty people I visited, the USA when I did the Logan's Home Invasion tour. Other than that, everywhere has been interesting.
  • Michael Stone
    Michael Stone
    is that because you knew what you'd get there? Could you see where a foreign traveler would find the US interesting? Now that you've seen their country thru their eyes?
  • Logan Horsford
    Logan Horsford
    I think they'd initially find stuff very interesting. However, a LOT of the USA is suburbs. Once you've seen one, you've seen tons. Unless you are confronted by very different architecture (plantation style homes, etc) how difficult would it be to tell where you are by the architecture within the USA?
  • Michael Stone
    Michael Stone
    Yea it's largely regional, with the most 'interesting' being east coast and south, because of it's age and 'European' roots, I'd say.
  • Logan Horsford
    Logan Horsford
    Even then, the building I am currently lodging in right now is over 100 years old. Finding a building of that age in USA? Not easy, probably 'historical'. Here is is 'usual'.
  • Michael Stone
    Michael Stone
    Is there anything you 'miss'? Do you ever plan on coming back and living here, or establishing roots anywhere else?
  • Logan Horsford
    Logan Horsford
    The people. Fuck no. (Not to say I won't get deported or some silliness at some point. Or I might do another LHI tour through the USA at some point.) Probably not. I like wandering about as the mood takes me. Only people who get tied down with family, wives or like 'same ole same ole' get tied to one place. There is something refreshing about living a 'non-standard life' and I love it.
  • Michael Stone
    Michael Stone
    Would you say the worst part is finding food/water that your tummy won't try to leave a snail trail from?
  • Logan Horsford
    Logan Horsford
    Not knowing for awhile. That's always kind of a bummer. You sit in the restaurant eating and thinking "This tastes pretty good - but is it really good or will I pay later?" Part of the adventure. [BTW - since I'm getting an interview from you, mind if I stick it in the blog?]
    I'm enjoying getting interviewed - it's an easy article for blog. I will give you credit as Michael S. (unless you want your full last name -up to you) but I'm going to go smoke while you contemplate.
  • Michael Stone
    Michael Stone
    I don't mind at all, you can use my full name. There are probably a kazillion Mike Stones out there.
    Smoking is probably easier, no weird laws on where you can smoke or not smoke.
    Ok, and speaking to bathroom habits. I'm very much a 'my space' kinda pooper, is there that stigma in other places? Here in the US it's almost like other people don't think you poop. It's weird.
    Ah, language barrier. do you have a smart(ish) phone? I'd be curious if you've used it in a conversation with people where your grasp of the language isn't there yet.
  • Logan Horsford
    Logan Horsford
    Actually, there are weird laws here in Ukraine as to where you can smoke and not smoke. You are not permitted to smoke outdoors but the Ukrainians ignore this. Since the police are corrupt and may demand a bribe if I'm caught smoking not close to an outdoor ashtray, I am careful about that.
    When you say "my space" pooper, do you mean you don't like to poop where other people might or that you don't like to have several other people watching you poop?
    Yes, the USA has a lot of stigma against pooping.
    I don't own a phone.

After this, Mr. Stone either lost interest, wandered off, suffered a fatal heart attack or was kidnapped.

If you'd like to interview Logan and don't mind your conversation showing up in his blog, be sure to contact me on Facebook!
