Lusaka is refreshingly cosmopolitan. Zambians love to drink and the city has a great bar scene. Lot’s a fun to be had here!

The Girls

Miss Africa 09: Zambian

Zambian girls are attractive, fun-loving and are exceptionally friendly. They have nicer features than most western Africans and you can find absurdly sexy girls here! Not only all they slim with whopper curves,  they also have liberal sexual attitudes and are more relaxed than girls in east African countries. You can meet plenty of  Zambian women who are travelled and educated. Most of them are just looking to have some fun and are less inclined to see you as a giant wallet. Day game is easy and shelters you from a potentially sleazy night out. Just be warned, there is a high instance of HIV here. When you get to Lusaka you will see why.

Nightlife Recommendations

They’re are plenty of Western-style spots filled with tourists and locals alike. Lusaka nights are anything but boring. The classiness of the clientèle varies tremendously from place to place.

Lusaka, the classy version…


Two bars, great for a warm up. Plenty of classy girls about. You can even come across the odd model.

Lusaka, the slighty sleazier version…

Alpha Bar

Lusaka’s must-see! Everybody comes to this disco-bar at least once. The beer is cheap and there’s women a plenty. That said, many are  ladies of the nights so you might end up shoring without knowing. This place has a great atmosphere and is packed every night. Anything goes.

Legislation: Marijuana is illegal in Zambia, and so is any related action

Law enforcement: Never had any run ins with law enforcement. They seemed to be more interested in other things, however locals are very cautious about dealing in the open. The person you are scoring from will be very discreet.

Where to buy marijuana: Zambia is very economically depressed,so it is not to difficult to find. Just ask a street vender or a cab driver where to find the Dagga and it will not take long…

Marijuana prices: about $5.00 to $10.00 U.S. for about three to seven grams

Marijuana brands: most bud in Zambia is forest grown and decent quality.

My Lusaka Experience

I got both ends of the stick in Lusaka. I picked up a 19yo in Alpha bar who bought me back to a coach-roach invested shack. But she was very sweet and we really connected. The next day I hooked up with a billboard model for Miller! I met her on a bus to Livingstone. I used some Jefferies stuff and end up getting her off on the bus! We met up later that night but her agent wouldn’t let me into the room. She told me to sneak into the hotel after ten minutes. Bad idea.  I got arrested for breaking and entering and she end up getting kicked out of the hotel for her involvement. Happy ending – she got me released without charge and now she keeps begging me to back there.

Budapest City Guide

On the Danube

Budapest in a word: Underrated.
C.O.H: 3 / 5
Q.O.G: 3 / 5
S.T.L: 2 / 5
City guide ratings explained

Costs €$£

Beer: Around  €2 for a pint
Bed: €18 for a private room
Bud: €10-15 per gram
Board: €3 for a hearty goulash.
Budget other: €10 for a booze cruise. You will have to take taxis from Buda to/from Pest at night.
Currency Conversion


Budapest is a beautiful city and has a lot to offer. It’s one of those places you wouldn’t mind going back to. Enjoy the quirky bars, dip in the baths and embark on a scenic booze cruise of the Danube.

Park Baths

The Girls

Tamara's just Buda'ful

If you’re coming from western Europe you will think the girls are exceptional. If you’re coming from Poland or the east you will feel downgraded (but they do have a little extra T&A). Male and Female interactions are en-keeping with the rest of Eastern Europe. The man is expected to pay for drinks on dates and respect them and blah blah blah. You can game them like any other girl. There is a language barrier but Hungarian women don’t seem to care and are interested in meeting non-Hungarian men. The pub scene here is great for chatting up women. Huge crowds hang-out outside in the summer and create a festival like atmosphere, it provide a great opportunity to meet locals and some saucy backpackers as well.

Nightlife Recommendations

Go on the Booze Cruise. This is usually followed by an epic pub crawl. Otherwise, there are two great bars you should check out, both are suitable for picking-up girls and enjoying a relaxing pint. Both of these place are definitely for the summer.


Great atmospheric bar with tons of character. The entrance might throw you off but go inside – think beer garden  / junkyard. Lots of people around and cheap drinks. Good place to bring a date. Lots of seating so not a great place to go on your own.

Zold Pardon

Great open-air riverside bar popular with locals and foreigners alike. Concerts nearly every night. I had an excellent time here.

* Honourable mention for Dokk beach near-by. Open air club (cap. 10,000!)

Legislation: Hashish and marijuana are totally illegal. However you can buy weed in a lot of varieties and in very good quality. A lot of Hungarian people smoke marijuana.

Law Enforcement: The police will arrest everybody who use, buy, grow soft drugs, but sometimes you can buy your freedom on the spot.

Where to Buy marijuana in Budapest: Head to the marina, there are 4-5 discos and one of them is on a boat. Go into the boat and go to the rear of it. Ask someone where you can shop? They show you the dealer and if you come in time you can get some weed. The place is only open during weekends until 5 am. But you need to be there earlier as demand is higher than supplies.

Budapest marijuana Prices:
the going price around town is supposed to be 10 euros for a gram and that’s what they will tell you that you’re gonna get but the deals are really small.

My Budapest Experience

I was tour guide here for 10 women so I had my hands full! I still managed to hook up with a incredibly sensual, attractive Chinese/Canadian girl from my hostel whom I’m still in contact with. Hungarian girls didn’t attract my attention after Poland to tell you the truth… The booze cruise was electric.

Me in Budapest…

I'm so cool.

Riga City Guide

The Blonde Parade


Riga in a word: Ridiculous.

Q.O.G: 5 / 5
S.T.L: 3 / 5

Costs €$£

Beer: Around  €3 for a pint

Bud: €15 per gram
Board: €6 for a pizza.
Budget other: Beware: some nightclubs charge exorbitant prices like €7.50 for a  bottle of Corona.

Riga has it all – a charming old town, great night-life and its near a beach. It’s the most expensive Baltic country but that will probably change. The biggest attraction here is…


Djadenko from Riga


The Girls

Book an appointment with your physician before your return flight; after spending a few days here your neck will be in tethers. I mean it’s ridiculous, you can’t even eat breakfast without being constantly distracted by the barrage of stunning specimens on display. With naturally beautiful faces and shamefully slim, well proportioned physiques, only Kiev might compare. Even the mannequins are hot! They may a take a bit of gaming so you need to step up. Some social proof and a little peak-cocking is advised. You need to get here. You need to get here now. Click here.

Nightlife Recommendations

Conveniently  there is a good concentration of night options in the old town. Your mission: Try and avoid the British stag parties.

I love you bar

This place has two floors and cheap beers. Upstairs is better for conversation. I actually got approached here!

Club Essential

Massive after hours club packed with tons of hotties and even a few 10’s!


Standard fare in Riga


Any more suggestions on this section would be welcome. I can not, for the life of me remember the names of half the places I went to.

Law enforcement: If you get caught with amount smaller than 1 gram it’s only an administrative offence and you can get away with a fine or bribe – approximatelly 30Ls (~17$) should be enough. But on the other hand – if you are foreigners, they will probably want more – just act you don’t have any more cash and that you’re in hurry – it is very likely they will accept the the offer. But if it’s more than 1 gram you will be considered as dealer and then you’re in trouble. But it is extremely uncommon to get searched without a reason – so if you don\’t get in any trouble and/or act VERY suspicious, you should be safe.

Where to buy marijuana: It’s best if you have a friend who has a friend, because if you buy form a unknown dealer on the street it is quite possible to get low quality weed. You can try asking people who look like ones who should know… I highly recommend asking punk-looking youth. They are usually very friendly and will tell you where to get it (or even sell you their own). A place to look for dealers is Old Riga but don’t expect good quality and price. Never ask skinheads! They will act very friendly and tell you they know a place to buy cheap and very good marijuana and ask to follow. If you do so, expect to get beaten and robbed.

Marijuana prices: Usual price is 7Ls (14$) for a gram. But it will be more in Old Riga and a bit cheaper if you\’re lucky to find a good dealer.
Prices vary 6 LVL – 10 LVL ($11 – $18,5) per gram Actually “gram” is not a fixed value in Latvia, but the price is. It can happen that you buy from a gypsy dealer, you can pay 10 LVL for the thing called “gram” by that dealer, but actual ammount would be smaller. $1 approx. = 0,54 LVL

My Riga Experience

I was here for 2 nights with 4 good friends. I k-closed 2 local girls  and made out with a Finnish girl  (much to her BF’s dismay I’d say), but unfortunately no full close. At least I have an excuse to come back! I imagine a 2nd meet-up and an adherence to Mystery’s 7 hour rule would have you golden.

Hanoi City Guide

Moto Madness

Hanoi in a word: implacable.
C.O.H: 3 / 5
Q.O.G: 3 / 5
S.T.L: 2.5 / 5
City guide ratings explained

Costs €$£

Beer: Around  €.60 a pint
Bed: €8 for a private  room.
Bud: €5 for a cigarette box.
Board: €1 for a basic meal.
Budget other: Beers get pricey in the high end nightclubs.
Currency Conversion


Hanoi is moto mayhem. The locals aren’t the most pro-western. Ha long bay near-by is mandatory.

Tila: Ethnically Vietnamese

The Girls

Vietnamese girls have paler complexions and look slightly more Chinese than the other races in Indo-China. They are attractive, but Veitnamese girls do not exude the warmth of the typical Thai. They are ultra petite like the Filipinas, but they lack the sexy accents and a bigger language barrier exists. These girls know what they what and they are pretty good hustlers. They don’t like Americans; they may act nice for the purposes of potential financial gain, but as far as they’re concerned you  killed Gramma. There is a lot of pick pockets and freelancers at night. My experience here involved attempted murder one night and being robbed another. That said, there is always a diamond in the rough. There are gentle and genuine women if you know where to look. If you’re looking for more friendly Vietnamese girls, head south to Ho Chi Minh.

Nightlife Recommendations

Most of the nightlife is around Hoan Kiem Lake and the Old Quarter.
Nomad’s advice: PUB CRAWL!!!
Jazz Club Minh
Good for a warm up and some live music. You might find more sophisticated locals here.

New century

New century is a big high-end nightclub with lots of girls. Note the ones that approach you are mostly working girls. You might have to shore but it’s difficult to build up emotional connection with these girls, they are pretty hardened. They’re are good girls here too.

Getting High (courtesy of

legislation: Marijuana is illegal in Vietnam, as well as most other social vices. The penalties in the books are very strict, however the police seems to look the other way or will ask for a small negotiable bribe. The big problem in this country is opium and heroin so marijuana is not the police’s first priority.

Law enforcement: In Hoan Kiem district frequent police patrols were spotted. Be careful when entering night-clubs, you will probably be searched in your pockets by local security agents.

Where to buy marijuana in Hanoi: The easiest way to get it is in Hoan Kiem district (near Hoan Kiem lake). Motorbike taxi drivers (or cyclo riders) will offer you something like this: “Motorbike? Marijuana?”. Since there are frequent police patrols in that area, it seems safer to do all the business during a short ride, where the drivers hands you a pocket of cigarettes filled with weed, you check and pay the price. If you’re staying in a back-packer hotel in the “Old city” ask your hotel guys.  For Thai stick during the summer (the only time it’s available) head down to Tet Bar at 2a Ta Hien, Hoan Kiem District. Outside a young Vietnamese dude named Than hangs out near the motorbikes and he’s got the goods. 50 grams should cost around US$50.

Hanoi marijuana prices: Prices are ranging from 50.000VND to 100.000VND (3 – 6 USD) for a pack of cigarettes filled with weed. Bargaining is a must, since at first sight you will be asked for anything between 10 – 20$. Thai stick 50grams (pressed into brick form) = $50 Laos buds 50-100grams = $40-80

locals here dont understand “marijuana” or “ganja”. You gotta ask for TAI MA

My Hanoi Experience

This story is definitely for another blog. It involved a machete and a Double BJ!.

Ulaanbaatar City Guide

Posted in City Guides, Mongolia with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 11, 2010 by Mackeral Mark

City Centre, nice huh?

Ulaanbaatar in a word: Drab.
C.O.H: 3 / 5
Q.O.G: 3 / 5
S.T.L: 2 / 5
City guide ratings explained

Costs €$£

Beer: Around  €2 a beer.
Bed: €10 for a private  room.
Bud: €5 per gram.
Board: €3 for a pizza.
Budget other: Sometimes clubs have a cover charge, €5-ish.
Currency Conversion


Ulaanbaatar is the world’s coldest capital and it’s anything but glamorous. It’s  not like anywhere you’ve ever been to and that’s much of the city’s raw appeal. Get to Terelj national park and stay in a yurt for a night.

Altantuya: Mongol.

The Girls

Forget the stereotype, Mongolia is home to some classic beauties. Statuesque and slender with subtle, appealing features; these women are erotic, wonderfully feminine and wear bizarrely sexy couture. They are shy and very sub-servant. Just beware of cock-blocks. Mongolian guys are big, bad and very protective of their women. You want to meet a beautiful, genuine Mongolian girl? I hope you play golf. Good-looking, single girls flock to the Terelj golf course to work as caddies. Imagine a Thai massage parlour, but with dozens of cute girls dying to lug your shit around a golf course for a day. It’s hilarious but a great way to meet a cutie. Traditional culture is strong here so you could have your work cut of for you. There is also plenty of females in the big local Irish bar, the Great Khan.  There’s always a few ‘single’ girls floating round.

Nightlife Recommendations

Due to new laws, nightlife dries up at midnight. Just get out early. That said, The police turn a blind eye and one or two places open till 4pm.

Great Khan
This a huge Irish bar and probably the best spot in the city. It’s always busy and has plenty of cute girls and great food too! The Guinness is surprisingly tasty!

Face Nightclub
It’s in a convenient location and attracts a crowd most nights. Cheap beer and always a few locals knocking about. I got in a fight here for hitting on a local girl.

Legislation: Cannabis is illegal in Mongolia. But it grows naturally almost everywhere in the country so no one really cares. Easy to bribe the cops if youre caught in smoking or possesion its usually max 20.000 tugruks (20$). Anyways cannabis is not very popular in the country so most people doesnt even know what it is.
Law enforcement: Having less than a 5 gramms of hash or cannabis you can stay locked about day or two and will pay fine of 50$ in a local police station. Selling it will make you in trouble of at least year in detention.
Where to buy marijuana: mostly nigth clubs, or ask the hippy looking guys in front area of state department store.

My Ulaanbaatar Experience

I was only here 2 nights and I was here with my parents. I’m not making excuses but having your Mam around kind of puts your game off. The second night I went out on my own to Face club and got in a fight.   But  it wasn’t all bad; my insanely cute golf caddie gave me her number the last day! I wish I had more time here.  I’m sure anyone who had a bit more time here could meet a nice girl. Really, these girls are adorable. Mongolia is a beautiful country.

See my pics below.
