comment What's the difference between embassies and consulates?
good explanation. I would just add that as a traveler even if you are at an embassy, you will go to the consular section of that embassy, because they deal with passports and visa. There is often a separate entrance for the consular section used by the public, while the main entrance is for official guests.

comment How to get to Battambang from Siem Reap?
I don't remember how much we paid. My Lonely Planet from 2008 lists US$15, by now that may be $20 or more. That's quite expensive for Cambodia because it is only for tourists.

comment Is it possible to travel to Cuba by sea (from e.g. Mexico)?
Oops, I should have investigated more. I'm sure I've seen some cruise ships when I was on Cuba in 2004, but you are right they are not American. The BBC has a bit about this: bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-12133640

comment Key vs. combo lock security for international travel
Over five years of constant traveling and locking my backpack I noticed two occasions where people tried to break my combo locks. They got bent a bit and I had to replace one of them later but they didn't succeed in breaking them. I'm not saying they can't be broken, but not by every kid.

comment Comparative safety of countries in Central America
I spent a few hours in Colon during the day, it was fine. People were friendly and it was quite different from the rest of Panama. During that day there were three bank robberies though and the police had blocked all the roads out of town. Most yachts to Columbia leave from the San Blas islands and you don't have to go to Colon for that.
