Countries Visited

Titanic Nominations
Worst Flight Late 1980s, New Dehli to London. Eight-hour delay, followed by a quick spin around the airport and landing with an escort — a small firetruck with a single hose. We were moved to a hotel, returned 12 hours later to the airport only to find ourselves stuck in an AC-frozen waiting room with no open food facilities; after another four-hour delay, the passengers rioted.
Worst Souvenir to Bring Home A pair of 6-foot-tall wooden dancing masks from Cameroon. Getting the package to the airline counter involved hundreds of dollars of bribes. Once there, it was overweight so we had to entrust delivery to a woman we’d just met. She did eventually get it to us!
Worst Airport The worst has to be in Doula, Cameroon. Aside from the bribes, there’s the complete lack of air conditioning, chairs, facilities and organization. Charles de Gaulle runs a tough second.
Worst Meal Any coach class flight across the U.S.
Worst Hotel A $2-per-night pit in Jayapura in the mid 1990s; walls didn’t go all the way to the ceiling, disgusting bathroom down the hall, bugs and very, very hot!

    In today’s knowledge centric business environment, human resources remain the key drivers of competitive advantages for firms.

    If you want to do it without re-inventing the wheel; if
    you want to shorten the learning curve; if you
    would like to be in business as fast as possible, then here is a path
    that I wish someone had been able to help me with
    early on. For the most part, mobile messaging can be accomplished at almost every level and no longer is just for the larger, more powerful companies.

    It is just too quick and the right place
    before starting a diet journal.

    Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did
    you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours
