18 December: Queretaro and Party at Marquez

Going to the Market, Mexican Style

We woke up really late near afternoon because we were all really tired after a long day of going to Guanajuato and the city Christmas fair. Carlos’s mom cooked us a big breakfast consisting tortilla with onion scrambled egg, red bean, eaten with dried chili salsa sauce and sour cream. A truly Mexican Desayuno (breakfast)!

17 December: Celaya Guanajuato

V is for Vendetta Breakfast

We woke up quite early since Noe had woken up before us. Then Indi took a little walk around the house while I downloaded pictures into the laptop and wrote in the travelog. Later, when everybody’s up, I made a Eggy-in-the-basket breakfast (based on the V is for Vendetta movie).

16 December: ASEAN Bazaar and Drive to Celaya

Morning in Mexico City

Indi took Noe on a stroll around the hood looking for Louis Barragan’s home studio but could not find it. I was mostly sleepy all morning due to jetlag.

14 December: Los Angeles to Mexico City

Our Impression of Mexico Megacity

When descending to Mexico City, a land at 2500m above sea level, we saw the city light from above, which was very very very beautiful. Too bad we didn’t have camera ready. We won’t be seeing this beautiful sight again. Such glitters are unique to this city of 23 million!

We arrived at dawn in Mexico City. The immigration officer talked really fast, somehow I felt that the effort I made in learning Spanish has been futile.

When we took our luggage we found out that Noe’s pack of diapers was torn up. But amazingly the officer returned the scattered diapers into the conveyor belt.

After clearing out the Douana we met Carlos Peralta! He is such a crazy gringo loco who is very skinny and eccentric. He told us a lot of story about when he was in Indonesia and traveling around the world learning arts, including glass blowing art. Carlos stayed with Indi’s family in Jakarta from 1992 to 1993 and has kept his Indonesian lingo polished since then.

13 December: Singapore to Manila to Los Angeles


Everything was set by 10 am and we called taxi to go to the airport. Noe was really excited about going and he kept saying "wee wee wee", which means, airplane (and cars, and boats).

Nos Vamos a Mexico y Cuba

Finally, we are done packing our gear for a 33-day trip to Mexico and Cuba. We will try our best to write as much as possible since every single place that we will visit carries a great deal of human history.

Borat Sagdiyev - Борат Сагдиев

My brother Yodhi introduced me to Borat. I wished I had known him earlier as he embodies the aura of most decent men on earth. Borat Sagdiyev (Cyrillic: Борат Сагдиев) ("born" July 30, 1979) is a Kazakh journalist that you should pay attention to.

To start with, you may view this video at your own will. Try to refrain from laughing, especially if you are watching this in a mosque, synagogue, public library, goat farm or mental institution:

Cuban Visa

We are getting one step closer in the preparation for our upcoming Christmas trip to La Habana. When we were in Indonesia last week for our cousin wedding, we managed to obtain our Cuban visa (tourist card). Yay!

9 Aug - No More United Airlines Please

I woke up quite early, around 3.30am and finalised the packing. Then we head down to the lobby where we waited for a girl who wanted to share taxi with us. While waiting, we watched National Geographic channel which screened a story on the collapse of New World Hotel.
