hey peeps, so unless you’ve stumbled onto this blog for the first time today it’s news to no one that i’m an Ecuadorian-American living in Ecuador and have been for the last few years. my latest for Paste Travel – Ecuador Time is Like…Whatever – is about adapting to life here on some of those first days. check it, share it, shout it from the rooftops. click on the image to read the article in full.
hola people, my article on travel bloggers of color (ok, it’s technically a listicle) went up on Paste Magazine the other day and I urge y’all to check out every single blog on the list. subscribe to their sites, bookmark them, share them, follow them on twitter, send them a donation, comment on their posts, you get the pic. just support them and show them love. click on the image to read the full article.
hey people, thanks to everyone who participated in Outbounding’s discussion on race and travel writing last week, even the ones who were annoying as hell. faithful readers of this site will probably recognize my old piece The Grand Canyon on Acid (about drugs, birthdays and backpacking) which was finally published on Paste Travel the other day. on the front page today is my destination article on Quito, Weekend Layover. most of you know that service writing is def not my style, but talking about where to eat and what to do in Quito is so easy for me that i said what the hell, lemme sell out. mama’s got bills to pay. click on the images to read the articles in full and share them if ya like.
My latest for Paste Travel is a mad important resource for those of y’all (most of us) who are sadly unacquainted with travel lit by POC. Hopefully this list will serve as an intro for folks to get into it more. Read it here (and share the shit out of it!)
