1. Worst Cliché Found in Travel Writing “I was tired/unhappy/miserable but then I found x and it was all worth it” — and I have to admit I use this one too.
2. Worst Airport Lagos is pretty bad. When I was there I ran into dozens of touts in the arrivals area who hassled incoming passengers in a fairly intimidating manner. The next day I was with a Nigerian friend, and he said “Yeah, the airport used to be bad until they cleared out most of the touts.”
3. Worst City for Driving Probably Dubai. I kept getting lost, backtracking, double-parking, etc. On the other hand, I actually enjoy driving in much of Africa because there are no traffic rules, only traffic guidelines.
4. Worst Car Rental The same one in Dubai. It had an annoying, constant beep that played whenever you went over 50kph. I was driving throughout the whole Emirates, which includes a lot of wide open spaces. I listened that that beep for six hours a day.
5. Most Overrated Museum I tend to think most museums are overrated. But I do remember one particular tour that stands out: on Dominica, the guide spend most of his time talking about the new KFC and the two competing island cell phone carriers.

    Right away you can see that in the same serving size, one cup, for both of the dairy alternative beverages there are some significant differences. While the soy milk has 90 calories with 30 calories from fat the almond milk only has 30 calories with 25 calories from fat. The almond milk has one gram less of total fat, a quarter of polyunsaturated fat but 50% more monounsaturated fat. The saturated fat for the soy milk lists 0.5 grams while the almond milk lists none. There are 30 more milligrams of sodium in the almond milk and 240 more milligrams of potassium in the soy milk. The soy milk also has seven more carbohydrates and five more grams of protein. Additionally it lists 2% more iron, 5% more of both vitamin D and riboflavin and 6% more magnesium. However, the soy milk lists 6% less zinc.

    In case a woman has genital warts on the cervix, it can lead to discharge and bleeding.
    To be selfish at this stage can prove detrimental.

    A woman that can keep on keeping her man up will get his heart
    as well.
