Even though I quit drinking Coke Zero in 2008, I make an exception when I’m in a hot place far from quality coffee. So in 2009, I drank Coke Zero in Thailand, Cambodia and New Orleans. Coke Zero is my caffeinated insurance policy when I’m surrounded with bad coffee and tea.
This week Venezuela devalued their currency by 50%, which got me thinking that it might make for nice cheap trip. But then I recalled that Venezuela banned the sale of Coke Zero last June. Guess I could always pack my own tea.
