Foreign places where you can pay with US dollars

I am an international flight attendant, but I don’t fly to some of these places, surprised at a couple.  I did not know, for instance, that in Cambodia or Vietnam, one could pay with US dollars, if one was one vacation.  The big question, of course, is whether you are losing out on the exchange or getting a bigger bang for your buck (so to speak!)

I welcome comments and experiences from other travelers!

Fuel from CO2

I am a HUGE eco-minded person, my recycle bin is always bigger than my trash and try to find a bulb in my house that is incandescent.  I’m not perfect, nor do I get rabid about every little speck of plastic that I see wafting in the wind, but I certainly do my part to help clean up this globe!  To that end, I have found a cool website called the Mother Nature Network that has tons of great ideas.  It started out with a simple Facebook (FB) link about coloring Easter eggs without using commercial dyes that you get at the grocery story and after a little Internet safari, I am now a member and want to pass some of this on to you:  Take a gander!

Microbe That Makes Fuel from CO2 in the Air!!!!

Now if we can only make sure we don’t have any far-right ostriches who say that it’s all scientific mumbo-jumbo and that if it wasn’t thought of by Moses or Ronald Reagan it can’t exist, we should be alright!  It’s a start….!

Enough of THIS!


Crazy Album Covers

Hey Stupid! posted a page with crazy album covers from the 1950’s to the near present.  Be forewarned, there is nudity and cussing, but also extremely bad taste.

–ST: 10 Ways To Speed Through Airport Security

I added this webpage for my non-airline friends and family, it astounds me as to how often one sees the people at the security line, who look like merchants on the Silk Road.  Really?  You honestly thought you could get through with three strollers, a cooler and 30 pieces of jewelry dangling from various body parts?  Get out of the way!

–Find Rare Wines

I like a very particular kind of French red wine, a Brouilly, not easily found in the United States.  I can find it readily in France, but if I quit flying at the end of 2013, I will need a continued supply.  To that end, I have found a good website that finds rather obscure and popular wines.  Enjoy…
