Upon My Rocky Path

Traveling alone without speaking the local language is no simple task.  Why, then, do I continue to do it? This was a question I was asking myself two winters ago when I was traveling alone to Mongolia. Actually, something always seems to go wrong on my trips and something did go wrong on this one. Believe it or not, I forgot to bring my bank card and thus was limited to the cash in my pocket to get me to Ulaan Baatar (the capital of Mongolia) from Beijing.

He asked me: “You are feeling?” to which I said, “Good, very good, thank you. How are you feeling?” Salim smiled and struggled to respond to my reply in English, sometimes answering, “I am no feeling”, “I am fine, thank you” or "Hungry.

Nigeria

My name is Chigozilim Udonna Menakaya and I am a Nigerian-American. Whenever I tell somebody this, they’re always like, “please, there's no such thing as a Nigerian-American. Either you’re Nigerian or you’re American”. It’s funny because five years ago, I didn’t know that it existed either.

rant on roadtrips!

i love to travel! roadtrips are fun but i don't mind taking other forms of transportations: airplanes and what not.

umm let me list the places ive been too. my parents travel like crazy.

so sometimes we have crazy road trips and we spend like weeks on the road. we stuff the car so that we're suffocated with things that we need for our daily lives. its pretty insane because we just throw into our van whatever we would need and use in our daily lives at home.
