So I was in prison in Bolivia...

NOTE: For those who don't believe this story, read/research "Marching Powder"... this is not a joke!

We paid to get taken in to a real prison, where the inmates show you around (for example, they showed us "Murderers Alleyway"). It's totally illegal, pretty mental, and there are shotguns everywhere.

Nightmare in the Middle of Nowhere

It was December of 1974 and I had just got married to Juvencio in Porto Alegre. For our honeymoon, we decided to drive 750km south down to Punta del Este to spend some time on the beach in Uruguay.

We made our way down south spending most of the time talking, listening to music, singing and joking around.

A Smashing Entrance

One of the most embarrassing moments of my life happened in an art gallery. I was wandering around a crowded exhibition when something unimaginable happened. A painting on the wall across the room caught my eye, and, captivated, I began walking towards it to get a closer look.

Why is it called bytestories?

This is a place for "byte-sized" stories and there is a 1500 character (about 250 words) limit for two main reasons. Firstly, we want you to know that "War and Peace" isn't required to leave your mark. Secondly, it takes about 2 minutes to read each story meaning you can head here whenever you want a quick (and entertaining) read.
