Nothingness

Emptiness == Fullness; God == Evil; You == I; Everything == Void; I == You; Good == Bad; Birth == Death;

Infinity == Everything; You == God; a > b > c > d > a;

All == One;

How to speak English in Southeast Asia

published: 01 feb 2019

People in Southeast Asia speak little to no English. Even in the Philippines and Malaysia that are thought to be English speaking countries. In reality - no. Philippines and Malaysia do speak and understand English generally better than their neighbours. However, it’s on the surface - they won’t understand and won’t use common idioms, they’ll make grammar mistakes of which they’re unaware because they do and everyone speaks that way in their countries, and the level of their English is basic.

In South and Central America it’s often the case that flights from one country to a neighbour country may cost several times more than between the countries that are located way futher from each other. The flights Colombia-Peru, for instance, cost approximately the same of money as Mexico - Peru.

From Colombia to Brazil the tickets cost approximately $300-400. What if you want to go cheaper, what can you do? There’s one route somebody told me about. Thanks to the fact that Colombia and Brazil share the border in Amazonas, the route is this:

Colombia/Leticia –> crossing the border by land, on foot –> Brazil/Tabatinga –> Manaus
