How Is The Free Walking Tour In Cusco?

As I had a great first walking tour experience in Bogotá a week ago, I've decided to use my first full day in Cusco for a walking tour. With Cusco altitude of 3340 meters, a walk was a good idea to acclimate, as I've never been that high.

Thailand holidays part five : arrival in Koh Mook resort on Trang islands

This morning while waking up in Trang city I already felt very hot, it is 31°C and it is only 9 o'clock in the morning. I will withdraw money because on the island there is no cash dispenser. In the mini van on the way to the port I see something weird. On one square there are two long parallel clothes lines stretched with birdcages hung all the way. On each side there is a row of people well aligned. I do not know what they do it intrigues me! A whistle sounded and a person from each line advanced ... And I'll never know the rest because we start moving again. I do not know if it's a game, bartering birds ...? Thai people in the van do not speak English nobody can explain me.

Thailand holiday: 3rd day, Bangkok center

Bangkok Center. I start this new day with a breakfast and then go to the pool. There are Japanese lounging on the sun loungers. I enter the water, it is super good. The sky is gray as since I arrived, no need for sunscreen. I go for a swim but stop very quickly because I lose my swimsuit bottom. Oops I hope nobody has seen!
