Travelog for: Hedgie

Orange, NSW, Australia - 14th November 2008

By: sararingham

Hello! My name is Hedgie, I'm a very small little toyvoyager and I was sort of abandoned by my original mentor. She told Sara she wanted me to just live with her as she didn't want me to live with her anymore... was it anything I did? I thought I was a nice little guy, but apparently she's too busy so Sara happily took me on and gave me a tag and I'm ready to travel again... so you want to see what I look like?...

http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/hh140/toyvoyager_photo/large_hedgie.jpg
Yep... that's me... what did you expect? Anything else? Well, as I said, I'm very small and very lightweight so it won't cost much to send me onto a new destination... Sara just wants to know I'll be safe with the people hosting me, she's gained a bit of an attachment to me! :-) I'm happy, it means I definitely will have a home to come home to when I'm done seeing the world!

I'd love to learn about... well, everything... also I'd love if you could put in the longitude and latitude of everywhere I go... if I go from say... Orange to Bathurst, then back to Orange, please put all that...  it'll show where I've been and the distance I've traveled... if you need a sight to find those details... go to this site or just ask my mom! She'll be happy to help!

Well I'm off to Hawaii tomorrow sometime, my mom will take me and my new friend Josh and we'll be off! Hopefully the trip won't take too long... we can hope anyways, at least I'll have a travel companion! Write again soon mom! I'll miss you! <3

Honolulu, Hi, USA - 2nd December 2008

By: cyndir

I have finally arrived in Honolulu, Hi to visit with Rachael and her family.  Rachael says she's going to update my travel log as soon as she gets some new batteries for her camera.  I can't wait to see some beautiful beaches in Hawaii and learn to surf!

Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - 28th December 2008

By: cyndir

Finally time to update my log!

Rachael told me that she feels really bad about not being able to update my log until now.  Her camera's been broken, and she finally got a new one.  Yay!  That means lots and lots of picture taking.  She's only had a new and working camera for a few days, but she's already taken over 300 hundred pictures!

And tomorrow she's promised to take even more since we're going to the beach!  Yay!  I can't wait to go the beach.  She said we're going to go snorkeling and maybe even try surfing!  I can't wait!

Those two big dogs I'm pictured with are Rachael's golden retrievers and their names are Loki and Cyndir.  They seem nice.  I hope we can become real good friends!

I made two other friends too and their names are Bobbie and Josh.  They're in the picture with me.

Here are some pictures Rachael took earlier.  She's still figuring out how to do the whole upload thing.  Let's see how well she did!

This is me (of course!) with Josh and Bobbie sitting with Cyndir.  She was so friendly, she didn't want to stop cuddling with us!

Here I am hiding in their (Rachael & her hubby's) white Christmas Tree...

And here I am in the Christmas Tree with Josh and Bobbie.  Can you see me?
http://i42.tinypic.com/2ic09ac.jpg

And here we all are wishing everyone Happy Holidays! (Even though it's after Christmas, we're all still filled with lots and lots of Holiday spirit!  No one's quite ready to let it go just yet!)
http://i41.tinypic.com/5vvbqp.jpg

Earlier Rachael made her favorite-ist thing to eat in the whole world!  Can you guess what it is?  I had some too and it was absolutely delicious!
http://i41.tinypic.com/2d79ah1.jpg

If you said Mac & Cheese, then you were right!  Bobbie, Josh, and I all helped her make it!
http://i42.tinypic.com/5kkc5v.jpg

After a nice long day of hanging out in the Christmas Tree, playing with Loki and Cyndir, and having some yummy mac & cheese, it's now my bedtime.  I can't wait until tomorrow when we finally get to go to the beach! :p

Good night everyone!

Hi Mom

I arrived in Brazil. Ale, my host, said that I am very cute, I look more handsome live than in the pictures!

Mom,
Yesterday Ale and her friend took me to the Pizza Hut.
I tasted a pizza flavor they created here, its called Brazilian flavor. You can see it right next to the cheese pieces! It has meat, onins, and other things I cant remember!
I also tasted the orange juice and talked about toyvoyagers with the big bear sitting next to us. I told him he is too big to be a toyvoyager!! :(

Mum

Last week Ale was needing some new clothes, so she took me with her to the country's most popular clothing industry. Things there are VERY, I repeat, VERY cheap. She was carefull enough to picture me by the prices. 1 Real = app 0.5 Dolars. *
Of course, when you read it Lacoste, it is not really Lacoste... its all fake. But behind this very cheap industry lies one dark truth: most of them are made by semi-slaves from Bolivia. People who are poor there, are told there is a better life in Brazil, but when they arrive, they have to work for years to be able to pay the trip. Well, of course not all of these clothes are made like that. Some are ilegally brought from Paraguay (here you can buy 10 dollars "nike" shoes made in paraguay), or some of them are really all legal and everything, maybe 40% are legal.
I dont want you to think that who buys there is a bad person. You must remember that this is a poor country, 50 % of the people here lives with less than 1000 dollars a month. So it is not like that time when it emerged that Nike was using children to make their shoes, and everybody stopped buying from them. Here it is not a choice, people will either buy cheap clothes or will die of hunger! 

In the first picture you can see the dvd seller. You can find any movie in there, they sell 2 dvds for 2 dollars. Thats why Blockbuster bankrupted here, who would rent a movie for 12 Real,s if you can buy one for 5, with the same quality ? Here everybody buys fake dvds, its no big deal. Being illegal here is just a detail, unlike in the developed world. Here anyone, any age can buy cigarettes, birth control pills, condoms, see porn movies, as long as you have the money. And believe it or not, Ale is 22 years old and in her entire life the youngest person she has ever known having a baby was a 20 year old girl. People who sell fake dvds are not bad people, they are just poor people trying to make a living.

The next one is my favorite. Here is very common people selling things in the stops. This man was selling roses. Look at his face, isnt it sad that someone his age has to work like that?

The last pictures are on the groceries store, it seems like we are in the flowers season!!




I hope you all enjoyed!!

*so devide the price you see by 2 to have the price in dollars...

Oh mom, I had totally forgotten!
Here are some pics we took a few days ago, when we went to the mall and met Karla and the TVs she is hosting.
This big rhino was so scary!

Hey Mom

The other day we went to a nearby town, and had lunch at this cool restaurant. Everything in there was made with peppers! I even had a drink with red berries and peppers and a pineapple with pink peppers juice.  But Ale didnt let me drink to much of the first one, because it had alcohol and she didnt want me to get dizzy in the way back home.
