That is the look of a man who knows that his mullet puts Kentuckians and European hockey players to shame. Business in the front, party in the back and fabulous all over, this Seoul man works the camera after a long day of hiking in the mountains of South Korea’s capital.
It looks big. Very, very big. This “jumbo gyoza” (a Japanese dumpling known as pot sticker) sells for 9600 Yen, which is US $110 at today’s exchange rates. If you happen to find yourself in Tokyo with a large group of extremely hungry friends, make your way to the Iidabashi district. Take a right after […]
Sorry for the misleading (yet totally accurate) headline and sorry for the disappointment—it’s simply a clothing store, located just outside the Plaza Major in downtown Madrid, Spain. Not a bad name for a store though. I’m guessing they get a lot of disappointed pop-ins, but many of them might feel too embarrassed to leave immediately […]
Yes, my “world’s smallest” statistic is about as official as this Wal Mart branch itself, located in the Thamel district of Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu. I never saw anyone shopping here, so it seems even a fake Wal Mart sign can’t get you customers when you’re selling the exact same products as several thousand other stores […]
This sign was found in the village of Tuk Tuk on Samosir Island in Lake Toba, which is located in North Sumatra, Indonesia. Laundry services and magic mushrooms might seem like a strange combination, but the stores here basically offer whatever people want and I’m guessing those two are the most requested items.
I found this place on the northern end of the main street in Vang Vieng, Laos. I guess when you’re opening a business in a tourist town where restaurants have menus for drugs—in addition to the standard food and drinks menus—and the majority of visitors are sober for a few hours a day at most, […]
At this pool hall we went to in Changdong in northern Seoul, they provided customers with these three-fingered gloves. That changed my game forever. I didn’t get any better, mind you, and a practice round playing against myself would still last several days (assuming I don’t sink the eight ball), but it did give me […]
…and all of those lives were able to read Chinese. This sign was found at Karakul Lake in China’s Xinjiang Province and if you’re curious what the blind four-year old who was hired to translate it into bad English was actually trying to say, here’s the gist of it: “Beware of altitude sickness. Please take […]
Traveling in India, you will likely find yourself on at least one bus so decrepit with a driver so insane, you’ll be convinced you won’t survive the journey, so I suppose it’s only fitting that your last ride ever be on a converted public bus. At least that’s what they use in Canacona, Goa. The […]
In hindsight, I don’t know what more I could want—it has both a divider for a little privacy and select reading materials strewn about. I found this lovely squat toilet at one of the rest stops our bus made on the way from Lijiang to the Tiger Leaping Gorge in China’s Yunnan Province. You’ll find […]
