Translation for 140 languages by ALS
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowline.
Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sail.
Explore. Dream. Discover

Travelling with Russians on 4th of July (Los Angeles)

My holiday started just before dawn, waiting in the dark for the city bus to Venice Beach via ghetto ass downtown. A group of wandering tourists, party of four, approached. Their mother tongue sounded Russian to me (turns out they were citizens of Kazakhstan and Tajikistan taking a day trip from Sacramento); in English, the one turned and politely asked for bus directions to Venice. Easy, I said, I'm going to Venice.

And then we were five.

Once in Venice we parted ways. They headed to the beach and pier and stuff and I, to the muscle pit to get half naked and oiled up. After a few hours they came by to wish me luck and took pictures. I don't use Facebook but am sure I'm on there anyway!
