Myanmar formally Burma and Loas

In order to enter Myanmar, a communist society, you must leave your passport with them and get a new passport issued.  Then once you leave the country, you get your passport back and must give them the one that they made you.  It’s kind of a fun process. I have to say that Myanmar is … Continue reading »

Thailand

I wanted to share more of my honeymoon moments in Thailand .  This is what you would find in Central and Southern Thailand.  The Thai food was amazing but the western food was terrible.  It looked good but the taste was just not there.  It’s so interesting how flavorful Thai food is but when it … Continue reading »

The City of Country Music, Nashville

Nashville is one of my favorite cities.  It has great people, great food and of course great music.  I don’t think it gets any better than that.  The draw back is that it gets REALLY hot and humid in the summer.  This is something that my San Francisco self can’t handle for long periods of … Continue reading »

The Windy City Exposed

I’ve never been to Chicago except for the random layover at the airport and I have to say that it is not a bad place to hangout.   Except for the humidity, I quite enjoyed Chicago and can’t wait for another chance to visit.  The food was extraordinary, the people were friendly and the architecture was beautiful. … Continue reading »

Cafe Borrone

Cafe Borrone a simple place with grace and style.  I love this place.  I’ve been going here for a meal, a drink or a Mexican hot chocolate since high school.  Obviously, the drink wasn’t until I was 21 but this place won’t let you down.  Compared to the foggy city of San Francisco, it seems … Continue reading »

Austin,Texas + its hidden talents

The first thing that comes to mind when you say Austin, Texas is not food or at least I never did.  This liberal city in the heart of a conservative state delivers flavor, culture, spice and artistry in all of their dishes.  I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food that I was served. … Continue reading »
