  • Stigma Against Tattoos ~ Noel's World

    noelboyd.com 20 Sep '14, 3pm

    I think anywhere you go to in the world, there will always be this horrible stigma against tattoos. Based on the little travelling I've done, I can tell you that it happens more in Asia than anywhere else. Take my visit to India in 2007 as an example. In Bangalore, I got stopped three...

    I was invited for the first ever Don Quijote's BBQ Night last month. The food was amazing! Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought Spanish food could taste so good. On any given night if I am served beer, I would go easy on the food. But not at Don Quijote. Here's why...
