Bardo Museum-Must-See

Bardo Museum-Must-See.  I have a theory on museums.  My rule of thumb in most cases is I only visit world class museums like the Hermitage or the Louvre.  It can be depressing visiting underfunded, poorly managed museums.  So I knew when visiting Tunisia, I had to visit the Bardo National Museum.   The Bardo is the second [...]

Indianapolis War Memorials.  I had no expectations for my long weekend in Indianapolis.  I was attending a workshop for travel bloggers called BlogHouse.   As a former resident of Chicago, I had passed through Indianapolis over the years for the occasional work trip or social event, but had never formed an opinion in regard to the city.  (Except [...]

Mekong River Cruise Laos. The Luang Say undulated over the brownish river. Thick clouds of mist sat heavily on lush green forests of rolling hilltops. Hard rain pounded down on the boat. The rhythmic pulse of the engine propelled the boat down the Mekong River. I was comfortably ensconced on a cushioned chair watching the world [...]

Topkapı Palace, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque – Must-See Under a distance of one kilometer, Istanbul has managed to pack in three must-see monuments in one neighborhood, Sultanahmet.  It is quite easy to spend a couple of days just walking the streets in Sultanahmet, visiting monuments and mosques, eating tons of great food from baklava to chicken [...]

Luang Prabang From Above. Luang Prabang rests at the confluence of the Mekong River and Nam Khan River. Luang Prabang gained prominence in the 14th century as part of the first Lao Kingdom. The French extended their influence to Laos in the 19th century to protect against the marauding Chinese. Today, the French presence is easily [...]

Tiebele Painted Houses

Tiebele Painted Houses.  The truck grooved down the fairly-well graded dirt road.  The windows were rolled down, orange/brown dust poured in.  There was no AC.  It was well over 100 F and I was covered in a permanent glaze of sweat.  I was in southern Burkina Faso, near the Ghana border, heading to the painted village [...]
