"The middle of the Antarctic Peninsula on board a brand new silver sea silver endeavor, luxury expedition cruise ship right here in the middle of the Antarctic. What are the most popular travel destinations this year? Anywhere outside the United States simply because domestic airfares have gone through the roofs. Believe it or not this year so far this year, Americans are spent $11 billion more on domestic airfares than they did back in 2019. In 2019, we spent 75 billion this year 86 billion and that number is just increasing every day. Now for those who have the flexibility to make last minute plans for the Thanksgiving holiday, are there any deals for them? And what locations might they be? Well, believe it or not, I'm seeing very low airfares right now between the east coast and Paris between the east coast and Lisbon and other places in Western Europe, and that will stay probably the same until around March 15th. And that actually is applying now. The other great deals right now believe it or not, the cruise ships. Travel editor Peter Greenberg with holiday travel ideas to help you with Mark gingi. You are listening to one O 3.5 FM at WTO P dot com. When your back pain is your foot's fault, this is dean's story. It was affecting me when I walked, which was a kind of a common activity. Dean's chronic back pain had become a pain in the, you know what? At first, I just sort of ignored it. But eventually, everything catches up to you. Physically, and mentally. Back pain affects your mood. It really does. But that's not the only connection dean made. A friend of mine suggested I go to the good feet store. I was a little confused. Why would I need a foot store my feet are fine. But he thought, what the heck? He had nothing to lose. They took impressions of my feet and with the footprint they were able to get me a personalized arch support. That lifted pressure off my back. Um. So the source of your back pain was right under your toes. If something maybe I should have known, but I found out in the nicest possible way. See how art supports work for you with a free fitting. The good feet store has 7 locations in greater D.C. and in greater Baltimore. Visit good feet dot com to book your appointment today or just stop by. Saturday morning at one 38. Me and Crawford in the WTO traffic center. We start in Maryland with an update from the Baltimore Washington Parkway southbound I believe our trash activity after NASA Goddard should be out of the roadway. There's still some delays as they get things finished up and swept up and cleaned up, but I think this one is pretty much done and dusted. That is the best thing we can say about what's on the roads right now. On the I 97 through Ana rental county, all lanes have been brought to a stop. This is a serious crash doubtless to become an investigation if you're trying to get from Baltimore toward Annapolis or other points south that would involve either I 97 or the crane highway you were going to want to find another way around because this one will be in the road for some time southbound 97 before exit 7 for the crane highway. On I two 70, the southbound crash in your exit 22 for route one O 9. That is still in the roadway over on the left side. It may be on the shoulder left right now, but staying to the right to give them time and room enough to get this cleaned up. Capitol beltway in Maryland is good. We go to the Virginia beltway. We are apparently moving again through our work zone on the inner loop after gallows road single right to get by. We are expecting more stoppages as they do overhead sign work the other work zone is going to be after one 23 with the right lane getting by on 66 westbound work through the roslin tunnel right wing gets by eastbound as you're going to find the work after nutley street heading for the capitol bellway with the right lane to get by there as well. Numerous ramps are being shut down as they get ready to get open up the 66 westbound express lanes after the capitol bellway sometime later today on route 7 through Ashburn, no update on this one yet, but again, all the indications are that westbound traffic on route 7 at Ashburn village boulevard still is blocked for the crash and the response on scene three 95 sound on the ramp to seminary road right side of the ramp blocked by the crash activity. Ian Crawford WTO P traffic. We've got some really cold air for your weekend. First off your Saturday, not too bad. Yes, it'll be cold. Going for a high of 45 in the city, most suburbs in the low 40s.

"Hey, what's up, guys? I'm missed my flight. I'm in the airport in Lisbon and I thought I'd come to you and bring you a quick update on the FTX situation that's bringing down the markets. It would probably have been a good day on the markets if you look at the macro markets, but this whole feud between SPF and CZ binance has become huge. So what we're going to do today is we're going to go through the markets. We're going to go through the tokens that could be affected. We're going to look at exactly where we're at. And it's not looking too good. We're going to look at exactly where we are at and then decide what the best course of action is right now, a, if you're on FTX, be if you're holding FTX, if you don't, if you're holding all the other tokens. So and schedule stream, let's do those guys. Let's do it. Get the fuck out of bed, bitch. Go. Get out your heart. They got to go. When I wake up, how to wake up, bitch get up. Get up. Get up.

"If not, you can always short. If you think that they will support it, go along. And if to be honest, if it goes towards the $22, I'm going to go along and I'm going to take along with you guys live on the show. You guys keep watching it. Let me know in the comments. The other option that may come out of this is, as I said, the biggest token that's been hit is Solana. Solana has been hit the hardest. And there may be an opportunity if you believe in Solana to Barcelona. Again, I believe very much in slam I always have. I think that Solana is the second chain in terms of usage other than Ethereum. And it's kind of there's two worlds at the moment. The first world is the EVM world, which is ethereal Ethereum and all the layer twos on Ethereum. But the problem with that is that a lot of the settlement is not done on the main chain. So if you okay with layer two applications, then you can use optimism arbitrary Matic and Ethereum. But if not, if you want a chain that is super fast and that clears everything unchanged and that is decentralized, then Solana is probably your best option. And especially what we saw this week, having been here in Lisbon. We saw an amazing ecosystem. In fact, they boasted that they had, I think, 50% more people this year than they had last year. And you saw it. Bear market bull market. There were thousands of people that flew into Lisbon for Solana and very, very, very smart people. It wasn't like it was really slight people building really cool things with lots of money. We also saw a lot of very cool announcements. So we saw an announcement from Google that they are becoming a lot of our data. Let's just go through some of the announcements. So Google becoming Islam and validate to ledger coming to slana mobile. By the way, I held the phone. I used the phone. The phone is pretty cool. I don't think the phone is going to go mainstream. I don't think that that's the purpose of the fund. It was never supposed to go mainstream, but the phone is a cool phone. It's the only web three phone with

"Alrighty, I wasn't going to do a stream today. As you know, I landed in Lisbon today and as you can see, I'm settling in the new apartment. And I wasn't going to do a stream, but we have to just stream today because we got clarity from the fed yesterday. We finally got clarity as to exactly which day they are going to stop raising rates. So we got that clarity. And despite the hawkish meeting that we had yesterday, it does feel like the asset and altcoins are running. But it's only certain altcoins that are running. So I think what we're going to do is we actually look at which altcoins are running and decide why those altcoins are running. And I think I've got a formula or a reason. I think I understand why these little coins running. And if I'm right, then I can probably give you the next 5 altcoins that are running. So I think that's what we're going to do today. Should we do it? Let's go, let's go. Get the fuck out of bed, bitch. Go. Get up. And I wake up. Gotta wake up, bitch get up. Don't get up. Get up. You gotta go. Get up.

"How much Eric should we be warning people about these types of risks? We will see, I know you'll say this is markets, but we will see feces or as a hedge fund, multi coin to come up, which they are. But something like multi coin heavily promote something like solano. And I know having spoken to somebody when I was at das in London this week, the solano event in Lisbon said it was full of like 19 year olds being pitched by VCs. And there seems to be this celebration that something like that protocol could flip Bitcoin. But I don't feel like there's two things I think problematic with that one is that celebrating flipping Bitcoin, I think is personally I find it more morally questionable because Bitcoin is actually trying to do something that's super important for humanity. Yeah. And the second thing I find even more concerning is that the unbelievable returns that some of these venture capital companies can make off these protocols by getting very, very early, I'm sure I've seen some of my multi coin turns. The rumor is 20 million to a couple of billion. I'm not sure what it is. But something along those lines, they get to essentially a seed round and IPO at the same stage without even achieving product market fit. I find that problematic, but I'm sure you're going to see those markets..

"The royal palace was demolished by both the earthquake and this tsunami the imperial library lost over seventy thousand books. Many works of art by great european masters were lost forever. The total number of deaths was estimated to be between thirty to fifty thousand people. The earthquake didn't just affect lisbon. However it also affected cities all along the coast of portugal. The city of l. Garvey was devastated as were many other smaller communities in the south there may also have been as many as ten thousand people killed along the coast of morocco. The tsunami went across the atlantic ocean causing damage to islands in the caribbean and in brazil the ramifications of the earthquake were wide reaching ineffective places around the world far removed from portugal for starters in the aftermath of the earthquake. There was a semi organized relief effort in the past. If something like this had happened everyone would have mostly been on their own prime minister. Sebastien odell mellow organized. The relief efforts including an organized corpse removal to avoid adding a fourth disaster to the city disease. He did mass. Burials at sea to quickly and efficiently remove bodies even over objections from the catholic church. He organized teams of firefighters. Once the initial firestorm die down the army was brought in to deter looting and gallows were actually constructed in public areas around the town to discourage looting on december fourth barely a month later. Plans were unveiled for a new lisbon. The new city of lisbon was started from scratch with new wide streets. Unlike most european capitals lisbon is laid out like a modern plant city for this reason. The new buildings which were erected in lisbon are known as pump blind buildings named after the marquee pombal. Who is the chief city planner for the new lisbon pump buildings where some of the first in the world to be built to resist seismic forces. They were also prefabricated which allowed him much of lisbon to be rebuilt in record time. The earthquake also was the beginning of the modern science of seismology or the study of earthquakes. A survey was sent out to all the parishes in portugal asking them for information and how their location experienced the earthquake..

The city made the day far more deadly than it would have been otherwise as i mentioned in the introduction november. I was a holy day on the catholic calendar which meant that.

You just started your female experience throughout the world. Now you know it's it's it's a touchy subject. That it will probably. I think we're a lot of the next conversation going to are going to go to once. There's more trans safety and trans acceptance. Even her her. And i don't want to make this about how this show is got you in. Let's talk about me. I just want to bring up one last thing about her though her experiences a little different than most trans women because she did it at a much older age. She my age. But you look like my mother. And she and i don't mean that in a derogatory said but she has white hair and she comes out like a nice old lady and so that softens the societal impact How i'm gonna treat this..

Portugal's Art and Architecture

"Let's start today's travel with rick. Steves in portugal. The architecture and the art of portugal to tell the story of that small country squeezed between spain and the atlantic ocean. You can wander through museums classical and romantic paintings to styles with the largest impact on portuguese painters or you can take in the beautiful. Blue azoulay zhou tiles. That ornament many of portugal's buildings to learn more about portugal's art and architecture. We're joined in our studio by two portuguese guides. Christina duarte and refco christina and raphael. Thanks for joining us. Average abuse here. Rick christina so often to understand the art of a country you need to understand its economy. There's money behind the art. How does money shape the art in the architecture of patrols. When you have money you want be surrounded by beautiful. Things actually is universal. Everybody wants to be surrounded by beautiful things. The thing is that you don't afford it many times and when you afford them you have them in portugal much money then because they have great art from five hundred years ago yes well. It is a combination of two major. Factors the fifteen hundreds with the discovery. Spirit that allowed us to have for the first time money enough for our trade with many places in the world so automatically the royalty had many the nobility had money and the church have many and the coincidence is that your have money and you have also religion behind it so which. She's being major catholic. Contrary in thinking that you want to give your best and you'll beauty to your your glorify gone exactly to glorify god so They were two kinds of ways of spending that money in art. Which was the private and that will be for palaces that nobody will see and to god in churches and i consider that public art so review. All you have this money coming in from the trade in fact the churches were actually nicknamed spice churches. How how does the space tie into the building of churches. Well when portugal arrived to places like india and china and we started to bring all of these new products. Back to portugal. They revolutionized portugal they revolutionized our economy and from there on the society started to change and that is one of the interesting aspect of art is that it reflects the other dimensions of society. So the spices. There were They were a major factor. For example the jeronimos monastery that began to be built precisely with the money that came from the spices. Which bases were these that were so valuable. So you had Pepper you had cinema And many others in christina. Why would people spend so much money for pepper and cinnamon app to preserve no sleaze to preserve refrigeration also to Pigments of any kind for linen. Or tying dying yes. it was something exotic. It was different. People never seen it before. So imagine the first time you are smelling coffee or you're tasting pepper or you're smelling cinema. Imagine the impact that you had imagined how it sparked your imagination so the wealthy people would want this. It would be titillating for them now. You mentioned the monastery at toronto's same just outside of lisbon b. l. e. m. I believe that was men. Welland style architecture. What is men whalen. What we're does that word come from so The men willing style is named after our kingman. Well actually the name was given only in the nineteenth century during the romantic period but kingman while he was one of the most important kings during our age of exploration so he ruled from the time of columbus until fifteen twenty began to rule in fourteen ninety five until the fifteen twenty s in the nineteenth century. They figured out that. We had a several monuments throughout portugal. That shared the same characteristics. So what are the characteristics. If you look at the front of a church what will you see and you go. Oh that's men welland from fifteen twenty so the manor line is late gothic style so you have the basic structure of the gothic and then over that basic structure of the gothic. You have a very specific declaration. You have for example. Maritime mothes you have the strong. Heraldic of manuel specially to miller rece- fear so that the coat of arms of the royal family and then themes from the sea because the money came from the see exactly like the rope the rope a rope with an art. He's a very very important symbol of maryland.

"Most of us think that the first Africans to arrive in what is now the United States, we're slaves, but it turns out that that's not true. The first African to set foot on what would become United States soil was a free black man named Juan Garrido. A conquistador, the Spanish name for a conqueror. Rita was born around fourteen eighty in west Africa. As a young man he traveled to Lisbon. Portugal then to Sa- V. Spain when he converted to the Roman Catholic. Church he took a new name Juan Garrido meaning handsome John. He winds up sailing with the Spanish is a free person as A. Door and spends three decades in service to the Spanish crown. In fifteen thirteen garrido participated in Pants Dale Fain expedition in Florida in search of the Fountain of Youth. This is the first record of a black person setting foot in what is now the United States. What does that mean? It means that there was this space people of African descent could occupy. That wasn't exclusively being a person of bondage. RETO. Settled in Mexico where he spent his final years working at a gold mining operation and while he was a freeman, he profited from local slave labor. Garrido died in fifteen fifty almost seventy years before the first enslaved Africans arrived in Jamestown?

But I know that we'll get through this crisis and when we do it'll be more important than ever to venture out into our world so for now. Let's enjoy these virtual adventures through the Radio. And when we're able again let's promise to keep on traveling if you like to explore historic cities with funkier festive neighborhoods. We've got to for you to choose from in the hour ahead. Tour guides from Portugal will help us navigate the street life and the tangle of cobbled lanes and lookouts and their capital as we get acquainted with the neighborhoods of Lisbon and an architecture critic finds a lot to like faded charisma of Buenos Aires. But I writer Wendy. Simmons returns to travel with Rick. Steves to help us look forward to our next long airplane flight in coach as a photographer and contributor to Huffington Post. Wendy's traveled a lot so far she's been to eighty five countries. She doesn't read the overseas flights at all in fact she joins us now with her tips on enjoying your next flight. Wendy thanks for being here. Sorry my so you write that long haul. Flights can be more fun than short ones. That's pretty good trick house. Oh I travel all the time as you said and I've come to really not lake. Short flights feel long only. They're not so I can't get anything done and instead you know. I look at long haul flights as uninterrupted me. Time just ten twelve hours of time where? I don't have any guilt that I should be doing something else and instead I can use the time to do all the things I wanna do that. I never seem to have time for one on the so that takes a little bit of intention and thinking ahead. I do the same thing when I'm planning a trip to Europe and I know my departures a week out. I've actually got a little list of things I'm going to do during the flight because I will get hours of me time. What are some of your meantime activities that make that flight actually blessing? Well it can be fun stuff and it can also be stuff that I just have to get taken care of that. I never have time to do so. For example it's a great time. I listened to a lot of music. I love music and I am always frustrated. That can't find the song I feel like listening to her playlist and that type of thing so it's a great time to clean out my tunes library and get rid of music. I don't like or create playlists. It's a great time to go through my email inbox and just finally cleared out. You don't have to be online to do that. Those things take a long time in our lives are so busy and never get render so tedious and who wants to do that on weekends. You know for me. A related thing would be Hall the piles of photos. I've got packed into my iphone. You can just go through in down. It's actually it's the perfect time to do all the stuff you don't WanNa waste time doing during the weekend or at night. Also you can just do something that you would normally invest time in other ways. Absolutely you know I'll to things like if I've always wanted to read about the history of someplace or I've been wanting to learn a few key phrases in the language of whatever country I'm going to you know that's the perfect time to catch up on movies or season of television shows all season of whatever or watch a movie that you wouldn't have exactly those are the exactly the kind of thing so it's really about mindset or a movie that your partner wouldn't WanNa see with you exactly are the ones you'd be so embarrassed ask anyone to watch with you. If you're anywhere else I love to walk up and down the aisle and just look at the way. People are spending their time and see how they're really getting into all that trash on the screen. I mean I've watched some of the most embarrassing movies ever on airplanes humiliated if anyone knew but it's the perfect time and I think you know people go onto airplanes dreading it and if you just you know if you make a few simple changes and you bring a neck pillow and you dress in layers and you take your shoes off and you have a glass of wine and you sort of look at the airplane is your you know your personal private space albeit. It's not comfortable but it's not permanent. I know people that would they would travel less in order to go first class and makes no sense that ultimately. I don't know how much more I think you'd pay five or six hundred dollars more one hundred dollars hour or something at least just sit in first class and just makes no sense to me because what you can do is you can creatively work to make your coach seat. Feel a little more elegant. And there's ways that I always say I would rather sit in coach with my noise reduction headphones than to sit business without them because the rumble of the airplane is. It's just exhausting to me and I can have my own little cone of silence and when I put my headphones on nobody talks to me and I do have that meantime I remember this interview that the CEO of Spirit Airlines did one time after a poll came out ranking them dead last in customer service and seat size and space and all these other statistics and he basically said listen. We get you from place to place really cheap. You can spend the money where you're going and I thought you know what a brilliant response and that's how I look at it. The airplane isn't part of the vacation. It's to get me to the big Russian affordably. Say money to it up and uncomfortable for thirteen hours so I have an extra thousand dollars when I get wherever it is that I'm
