A few years ago Ben Randall was a long-term traveller enjoying the amazing food and the company of the incredible, kind people of SE Asia. He lived in small rural villages and befriended locals all over the region. Sadly, Ben discovered something that would have otherwise been the farthest from his mind, human trafficking. One […]

The town in question is called Pasto and the source for this madness is spelled out as “Carnaval de Negros y Blancos”, or for you non-Spanish speakers out there, the “Blacks and […]

An underground salt cathedral is not your daily place to say a prayer, I would say. But for hundreds of mine workers the cathedral in the salt mines of Zipaquira, Colombia, was for years the one place where they would pray daily for protection before they started the day’s work.

Giving its charm it’s somewhat surprising, but well, I should be honest, the charm is actually mostly thanks to the Guambianos – the […]
