Travels: Enjoyed everywhere (exception is Brunei), the people, the music, the food, the vistas, the religions, the dress, I love it all.It is hard to compare the statue of David with a lion roaring 75 feet away, a pyramid with the Grand Canyon, or the Great Wall with the night life of Rio. It is hard to compare man made wonders with natural wonders.
I love it all, and I want to see and experience it all.
