@Ankur I have alien residency in Taiwan... so China isn't to happy with me. I'm assuming this is why they are being harsh with me.

comment How to overcome the language barrier when visiting France and Spain?
I personally found this especially true in Paris (not to be derogatory, they just like their language). For the most part, rural France was easier for me to get around without any French.

comment Can anyone recommend a good trekking tour for Machu Picchu?
Gap has some good guides, I met a few. I would still say book in Cusco. The guides are not exclusive to a company, they (and the porters) float between companies as they are needed. As I understand it, this is encouraged by the government as it spreads the money around the town and not only a few guides are making money. On a side note, to be a guide in Peru, you need a bachelor's degree in being a guide... so most of them are pretty knowledgeable.

Personally, I found the Incan trail hike acceptable. I had a buddy who DIYed his own hike without a guide (which is illegal) and it turned out okay, as well. Something I learned, show up to Cusco and book one there. There are tons of backpackers looking to make groups.

comment How much Russian do I need to know for travelling within Russia?
Oh, hmm... Yea. I don't think it is a actual word, just something I hear alot. It means using your hands to indicate what you want. But not just pointing. I had to buy a jock strap once... and well, you can image how I communicated that.

comment Which beaches you must see in your lifetime?
@realbot The issue is there isn't a way to answer this question. It is too subjective.
