Maybe I’m behind on The Times (NY that is)

I want to do this.  Cruise in the Amazon for $17 a day (food included) and sleep in a hammock with people packed in like sardines.  Well, I have traveled 9 hours up the Rio Coco between Nicaragua and Honduras, and then spent the night in a chicken coop on a hammock.  That is pretty close… but this only increases my desire to go to Brazil…

While I discovered this article, apparently, this section of The Times (frugal traveler) was recently passed on from Matt Gross (who began in 2006) to Seth Kugel (who began about June 1, 2010).  Isn’t this a freaking AWESOME job? And I think we need a girls perspective on this… Yes. Most def, because it is a little bit different traveling the world as a girl, and not like in lame stereotypical way (like I need my blowdryer and make-up).  Women have to be a bit more cautious, safe, clever, make good friends, and work their way to free stuff (without sacrificing dignity, ha).

In the meantime, I’ll will be keeping tabs on this new torch carrier…
