I love teas.  I just wish the bottled teas didn't have so much damned
sugar in them.  I don't know how Japanese tourists survive in this

Mate de coca was a life saver when I visited Bolivia.  The hotels have
the stuff waiting in the lobby to deal with the tourists' altitude
sickness.  Though, I did recall the fate of a couple of American
tourists who crossed the line of legality (Butch and Sundance), so I
made sure to stay on the mate side of Bolivian law.

I'm just glad there was no police raid on the apartment I had recently
vacated.  Turns out my ex-roommate was a cocaine dealer.  (The signs
were there, but I completely missed them.)  If the police had picked me
up, I would have failed the drug test, and I would not have been able to
get off by ratting out my dealer.

(The War on Drugs is an utter joke.)

A bit of a lack of self awareness there: my ex-roommate had chided ME
for betraying the black race simply because I didn't like rap music,
yet, here he was getting black people hooked on coke.

Ah, three more songs to add to my karaoke wish list!
