Christmas in Uganda

Christmas in Uganda

This post is my reflection on the Christmas day I spend with new found friends and family in Uganda… My friend Amina, in the black dress below, was our safety guide while rafting the Nile river 2 days before.  She saw that I was traveling alone and asked where I would be on Christmas.  When … Continue reading

Take out in Gizah! Let’s see rib meat, steak tips, marinaded chicken, hummus, beans that I cannot describe nor eat, pickled vegies, and fresh greens.   All timed to be served with The Great Pyramids of Egypt’s amazing LASER LIGHT SHOW!  Sooo, so cheesy.  There will be some videos of the LASER LIGHT SHOW soon! … Continue reading

Their cows graze among the cactus and ocotillo like plants I have seen in Mexico. Sausage trees stand leaved, fruiting and their sparse shadows the … Continue reading

Bedbugs on the march!

Bedbugs on the march!

Bahir dar, Ethiopia, is allegedly a great place to relax after traveling Ethiopia for a while. I don’t find it that way for several reasons and last night gave me another. As I lay awake at midnight listening to the dogs howling and barking (where are they in the daytime?), I noticed some movement. The … Continue reading
