Fill in the blank: Hello. My name is Alex Botelho, some people call me beetroot. I would best describe my hometown as Lagos. I've traveled quite a bit, but by far the best place I've been was the Caribbean, because I had no idea waves like that existed. But, by far most worse trip ever was on the way to an island in Indonesia, because I was covered head to toes in coachroaches laying underneath a 4 foot tall deck in a boat that took 25 hours. It still was a great trip.
