I was planning on going on a hiking trip in Peru to Machu Picchu in October, but I can’t go due to work. Such is startup life…
The trip combines hiking along a secluded Inca trail with overnight stays at traditional mountain lodges. It’s been sold out for weeks but I have two spots. Send me an email if you’re interested.
I signed up for Twitter recently. You can follow me at twitter.com/jonlech.
I will be in Asia from early to mid August. I am heading to Tokyo first and then Beijing for the Olympics. If anyone wants to meet up, send me an email.

Actually, no. I went to the Apple Store earlier with a friend who got a MacBook Pro and an iPhone. We were in and out in 5 minutes. This no-camping procedure is also known as having a life. Too bad for those who over-estimated the demand, camped for hours or even days thinking that they’ll be able to sell their iPhone on CL for $2000.
Letting Norwegians loose in the duty free store is like letting kids loose in Disneyland…
A 1l bottle of Martini Bianco is 150 NOK (25 USD) at the monopoly store in Norway. At the airport it’s 50 NOK (8.5 USD).
