philberticus Good-bye Cuba, good-bye Havana. It's hard to believe that this country has been sanctioned for over 50 years. You can feel the change in the air everywhere while much remains the same: the cars are (mostly) ancient, the store windows display the few things in stock vs selling a dream, billboards advertise the Revolution and most Cubans can't wait to travel and have access to those things we take for granted. We are definitely nearing the end of an era. Can't wait to be back and explore more of this incredible country. 1w

philberticus The Riviera Hotel: built in 1959 it was a Mecca for rich Americans for about two years before the Revolution. Today it sits mostly empty and untouched frequented by a few tourists -- and the occasional swimmer -- here and there. 2w

philberticus The Hotel Habana Libre: it was originally a Hilton for nine months before Fidel moved in. Like so much of Havana, it's a time capsule of a bygone era. We took the elevator to the 24th Floor where Fidel and Co set up camp in 1959. 2w

philberticus Shaggy hair, cigs, beers. Berlin, 2004 at Dr. Pong. Today on this day, February 11, ten years ago, two young P's got married at the Chapel of the United Nations. I took the subway to our wedding and we threw an epic rager in Brooklyn that some mistook for a theme party (we were so young and weddings weren't anywhere on the horizon! People were psyched for a free party). It was such a spontaneous decision to get married and ten years ago we had no idea where this journey would take us: Today, I'm happy to report that it was the best decision I've ever made. 3mon

philberticus Kerala is actively trying to become a dry state...liquor stores are few and far between; an impediment when you're about to embark on a 24 hour backwater tour. Here's me in line at the government liquor store waiting for a fresh order of warm Kingfisher. 5mon

philberticus Roadside grooming. It's important to stay fresh and look good for long-distance India hauls and this guy wanted to fix his hair up before taking this photo of him in his truck cab (which he shares with two other drivers). 5mon
