Things I Learned While I Was on Liberty in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and Really, Really Drunk - Part 1

(A Guest Post by Harvey of Bad Example)

Since T1G is concerned that he's not posting enough to keep his site traffic up, he asked me if I could toss up a few little somethings to keep the readers coming back.

Blogfathering is a LOT more responsibility than I thought it was gonna be.

Last time he asked me to do this, I told a bunch of sea stories about the wonders of Pattaya Beach, Thailand.

So I thought I'd stay with that theme.

I figure since T1G was a Marine, he shoulda hopped on a Carrier like me to see these exotic sights himself, but since he missed out, I owe it to him as a fellow veteran to bring him up to speed.

After this, he'll be able to lie his way through a good sea story as straight-faced as a natural-born Navy man.

Now, some of these are pictures are a bit... spicy... in which case I'll slap a warning on it and put it in the extended entry. If anyone is truly offended, I'll hide it behind a link to protect the innocent.

Nothing dirty, it's just that Brazillians were 15 years ahead of the curve on skimpy beachwear.

Anyway, I'll start you out gentle...

If you forget your beach towel, don't worry, because within 10 minutes of sitting down at a cafe, some street vendor will wander by with an armload, and you can talk him down to $10 American.

Yes, I still have it.

.. I wonder what ever happened to Wang...

Zonker - Who says I didn't? :-)

Eric - Ya know, Rio was actually several months after Pattaya Beach, so I wouldn't be surprised if he turned up.

Possibly using a Portuguese-sounding name...

Christ, it looks like a bad tattoo.
