Was about a tenner in the airport for a pint when I passed through earlier in the year, good luck on your search!

A tenner for a pint sounds exquisitely cheap to my Norwegian ears.

Off to Marrakech tomorrow.

Got back a couple of weeks ago but only posting now - New Orleans is the best city I've ever been to.  Was there for a week and could happily have stayed longer.

Went to a plantation that had been turned into a museum to slavery.  It felt a lot like Auschwitz, but whereas that looked how you'd expect a death camp to look, this looked like something out of Gone With the Wind.  Glad I picked that plantation because I've heard the others just gloss over the slavery side of things.  Also visited the WW2 museum, which is huge and probably the best museum I've been to.  Met a WW2 veteran there who was stationed in my home town of Weymouth before D-Day, which was cool.  Also went on an airboat in the swamp and fed some wild gators, which is one of the most fun things I've ever done.

We did as Cuba said and went to Turkey and the Wolf. Best sandwich ever and one of the best meals I've eaten anywhere. I had a fried bologna sandwich (pictured below) and my girlfriend had their collared greens. She looked like she was on crack eating it and they really were that good. A must do if you're in New Orleans.

I went here.  Can't believe I went to one of the world's great food cities and the best thing I ate was a ham sandwich.  Ludicrously good.

What was the name of the plantation you went to? We went to the one they used for Django Unchained.

Whitney.  Drove past the Django one through.

Obvious, but going up the Duomo is cool. We went to a cracking cheap eatery called Portabello but we were on a bit of a budget. Still one of the best times we had in a restaurant in Italy, though.

The Terrazza Aperol is cracking for views over the piazza and duomo - little bit pricey but worth it imo.

We didn't go as it was closed but Javier Zanetti has a restaurant close to the park with the castle in it.

Must be an impressively sized restaurant.

Opened a bar in Leeds too.

Marrakech was incredible like, I'd love to go back to Morocco and do a bit of an inter-city tour as the country fascinates me.

Anyone been to Colombia?

Trying to convince my lass to go. Thinking of Bogota-San Andres-Cartagena-Cali Medellin or in the other order. Anywhere else worth going? Is it safe(ish) - assuming the normal don't be a dickhead rules apply but aside from that?

Booked for next year, only took 3 years, hopefully don't get told to FARC off.

Visited Guangzhou and Hong Kong over the last week. Really liked both. Guangzhou suprised me, a lot more character than where I am now. Hong Kong was class, if expensive. We were a bit hamstrung due to the protests (which we avoided) but the metro was off.

Wan Chai I think it was called in HK, has to be one of the seediest spots i've seen like. Two 'British' themed bars surrounded by blatant brothels. Chocka block with street prostitutes too. Was pretty funny/rancid watching old to middle aged western blokes stumble off with them like.

Well Mexico was outstanding. Great hotel staffed by the friendliest of people, fantastic food and good drinks constantly coming at you. A little edge out and about especially when the sun dropped,nothing too serious mind, but what a cool place to bob about. Tried all types of tequila and some of them are so smooth as others are lethal. Could easily have spent a month there and not got bored.

Downsides being the constant hassle when your out, literally every few steps and I've been to a few places but this was probably the worst I've encountered. Sad sights seeing babies strapped to mother's while they're out grafting all day and night. The constant pushing for tips by randoms coming up to you in bars doing pointless s*** like taking your picture or some daft magic act then pursuing you for big tips. Also a few places had clearly drugged up Leopards lying in the shop floor just to get you in to buy their tat. I can get why the people out there do this to get money, shockingly paid.

Also we found out towards the end of the holiday the hotel right next to ours had been seized by the government just several months earlier due to the cartel chopping up people there. Found this equally as eerie as it is fascinating.

My photos from Belarus last month (posted in here as not as many people check the photo thread). The trip will be remembered for discovering my great love for Ladas... known over there as Zhigulis. Taken on Kodak Tri-X 400 film with a Contax T2 for anyone interested  :)

Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.
