invader must die!

I was a big fan of The Prodigy, indeed it is something born in the UK that deserve some mercy...
A younger Father Bunny and I.  were speeding with a car with just 140 HP listening to this song. Now we have more than 270 hp  and we just stay in the 30 mph limit.

Well, try the tune while spinning

From Cuba, part 1.

Sometimes you don't realize how important a place is for you... we did not like the place so much but we learnt some lessons from there.

Amazingly, they have a Chinese city in Havana (well a tiny one).

Movin' and movin'

Well, this year I missed Hong Kong Electronics Trade Fair, so I have not visited my hometown. This is something it put me on tears since almost every year i was able to visit my city.

I have no explanation for being in love with HK or Tokyo, but just half an hour there is more than half a life in any other places.

I have been in quite remarkable cities like Milano, London (aggh), New York, Dubai, Miami, Praghue, Kuala Lumpur, etc but they just can not compite with my hometown.

Anyways, this is me packaging for the next location that will include, Rome, Bangkok, London and Koh Samui.

(off topic) if you go to youtube you'll see Nickie Minaj's awful face. This girls is just freaking disgusting...

Titanic disaster, and Real Madrid and Barça too

One hundred years ago the Titanic (HMS Titanic) sunk. The unsinkable vessel is now lying 3k meters down the sea.

We did not have any special like or dislike about the ship or the movie Cameron made a few year ago.

But yesterday while in a spinning class we heard that song. And (many years ago) we like it.

As Titanic both Barcelona FC and Real MAdrid have sunk in UEFA Champions league.

La Habana - Cuba

Will be Tometaro Miffa's heir ??

I am getting older, my father too, and I don't think my sister Aurore will be in the mood to run my "bizs".
Right now I can say i've visited the places I wanted to be since I was a little bunny. But in the search for new places that were not in my list we visited Cuba. 

A very nice place, with some "issues", but with great people. A place to visit before the USA enters there and makes a stupid ---Cubaland---.

One of the best things about the Island is that Americans are banned. Great? well they have Canadians, but they just drink and don't mess with you.

We took some pictures, and here you can explore our Cuban Set

An illustrated guide about travel rip-offs. Chapter One. Introduction to Modern Live (in DUAL)

Dear friends and readers,

I watched on TV so many stupid travel series about places I have been a lot of time as a tourist that I decided to share with you some of my “bad experiences” in order to avoid some unpleasant experiences.

Danger is everywhere and hawkers can smell stupidity as dogs do with fear.

Apart from that, walking with sandals and dark socks hanging a camera over your neck and wearing a safari hat – all together but in any combination- could be the recipe for disaster.

First things first, lets define “rip-off” and scam:

Rip-off is a “bad financial transaction” , in other way, “an incident in which a person overpays for something” The term overpays may refer from some extra $, to some hundred times the market fair value.

Scam is roughly the same, but it involves wrongdoing, cheating, and in some cases fraud.

Let’s take a clear example of this two:

While a rip-off is visiting Venetia (Italy) and paying for a Coke 3 euros while clearly and visible marked in big post in the entrance, and whilst other honest barmen applying some or similar prices (they both are robbing you), a scam will be guys yelling you and offering real brick oven pizza menu for 6 euros.

Where is the scam in the second one? That the offer was real but it was the price for the 8 centimetres diameter pizza and the standard 12 cm. is 12 euros plus a beer is 10 euros and additional set up table plus service charge is not included.

How to avoid scams is not the scope of this series but we will say some general rules

-Say no to everyone, and then say not again.
-Read everything and ask for prices (they doubt about it, get the hell out of that place).
-if something is so cheap, probably it’s not true
- HCT is not the same than HTC as Pear is not Apple, and Panascanic is not Panasonic
- Even when the real thing is properly spelled, a Rolex does not cost less than a Swatch watch. Even if the offer you a stolen one (buying stolen stuff is delective) they don’t sell it for pocket money.

And looking for some Rip-off inspiring images I have founded this amazing post about The Ultimate Kings of Rip-off : Low Cost (the so called) airplane companies

Check thatOff Track Planet TipChecking in online doesn’t mean you get to skip the lines. So get your ass there early. With budget flights, you’re more likely to get a Blow Job from the clerk than a seat on the next flight out.” Sorry but I have expanded the BJ
 Amsterdam airport, but we used KLM (organized criminals too)
 So you think singapore is scam free?
 This is what we never get!

Nice drinks, nice food, prepare a kidney to pay for that Tometaro

Ridin' on Kingdom of Boredom's roads

The one of us who have no airport to build a circuit in UK, like Top Gear, settle with riding on their roads.

I had more fun in New Zealand with the Falcon Mark II Xr6, but I blew two rear tires.

The worst place in earth you can be, try it, you’ll hate it.

With the 2012 Olympics being held in London, I need to ask you to go there. Being London one of the few places I promised myself I will never go, destiny made me a good move and I was forced to be there for a couple of days.

Kingdom of Boredom. That’s another way to translate United Kingdom.

Everything is disgusting, all the stupid places are not worth to visit, are crowded, stupidly expensive, and just suck!

We will try to make a list of ten or a thousand reasons you shouldn’t visit that damn place, but if you are studying English, please ask your father or mother to put you there for a month in summer.

That will be Summer of Hell (and you will return home speaking poorer English than before)

Quest for the perfect UK place - Oxford

We continue our search for the best place to live close to London but out of it.
A nice place we have been told is Oxford, a lively cosmopolitan city that is chosen by many expats.

Well, getting there is easy and fast with those double carriage (I would say two lanes) roundabouts every few miles. 

We have driven in almost all the countries who drive the wrong way of the road but here you have to pay EXTRA attention to look to the right when entering.

After these lines you will find some pictures of Oxford. We just don’t like it, for many reasons but one of them is they don’t like visitors, or at least they to bring a car.

In a Public parking – covered- we struggled to enter , because it was designed for Fiat 500 alike cars. Inside, not enough room to put the car into the marks. No problems let’s find another one. This time it was open air but really great parking lots.

Let’s pay, 3.90 pounds an hour (is this New York?). Ok, let’s use the credit card, blast they don’t take, a 20 pounds note, they don’t take notes…

You can only use coins, no change is given and you have to enter your number plate!!!

And besides all this mess in the country I am living they consider than a Eco Tax of 1 euro a day in unfair for tourist!

May be they’re right it’s unfair that in Barcelona, for example, you can pay with credit card in the streets and Parkings

Mercedes S Class

This is the Mercedes flagship , said to us the guy in the rent a car company. Well, that wasn't my idea of a nice car since I came here to test an Indian car (Jaguar) or a Land Rover, but they don't have them anymore. May be adding oil everyday has a great impact in business profits.

Obviously the unit is an entry level 350 cdi diesel. Extras? electric sunroof, heated seats (no extra cost in UK) and bluetooth ready. That raises the bill up to 61,780 GBP - that it's about 74.000 €. Not so bad, I would say that is cheap.

The car handles great with the standard airmatic suspension. It's a very long car (more than five meters) but it doesn't feel that long even in curvy roads. The only nightmare is to park it in some parking and of course on the street (parking guidance is standard).

Fuel Consumption? Great for such a big car. Around 8 liters in a real mixed city and road travel at legal speeds but using the more than 60 mkg torque all the time.

So good that i decided that this can be a good replacement car for me. Ok, there are some issues that we did not like it... but i will talk about that later.

Check the price in Mercedes-benz.es to figure up the price in Spain.

93.815 € 

For the same fuck*** car!!!!!!!

I need to take some air.

Quest for the perfect Village

"I can't live in London, father bunny, for obvious reasons: first of all is big, dirty, expensive, plenty of people that don't like me and that i dont't like...Besides I have always dream of living in the countryside"

Taking this into consideration we need a place close enough from London and not only that with easy access from/to the city.

North from London following the M1, about 45 minutes from London you can find two places that are well known for being London's dormitory towns: Hemel Hempstead and St Albans.

We first visited Hemel Hempstead and is such and ugly city that we didn't take any picture of it. It's big, unattractive, old looking. We'd rather life in "Los Monegros" than there.

So just a few Miles heading East from that ugliness you can find St Albans. There were Romans there (they called the city Verolamium) and you can visit some ruins (something that we did not do because of our tight agenda).

It's nice, it has the proper size, a nice center, a cathedral, a tower clock, it has nice houses in the outskirts...

So we visited our friends John Taylor to figure up how much a house costs. 

1.4 Million GBP !!!! (ok, it has 6 bedrooms and a nice garden...)

Ok John I will think about it, but so many Aston Martins and an Audi RS8 parked in the supermarket were some clues that pointed about that.

Next check will be Oxford in the Midlands.

Miffa has just bought a farm!

Well, not really, she is dealing about prices and payment, but she is confident in getting a nice price and a long term loan with the HBSC.

It's located just twenty miles North of London, and it has the perfect size, rather small!! They breed rabbits, pigs, goats, sheeps, Guine pigs and other small animals. They even have a Llama!

But Miffa will need to invest a lot in infrastructures, because the location and the machinery is in bad shape.
 The Village has nice houses

Miffa and Tometaro travel to Buckinghamshire (England)

After sometime idle, for different reasons Miffa and Tometaro travel again. This time Miffa is checking places to live in the countryside.

Following advice for some friends of her she has selected several spots North of London, around M1. This is about 45 minutes to 1 hour from London.

This was our first time in United Kingdom, and probably is a place that we had not visited in our whole life. Let's say we don't care about this country. We have been in New Zealand (that indeed is a tiny copy of it) and after the initial hype about grass, sheeps and cute houses... that it!

But for a good reason may be Miffa will be forced to live there for a while so she decided to invest some money in a nice Victorian house. 

 we got a S Class Mercedes, nice start
 Inside there was no phone, it's fake!

Nice houses, let's check the price
