Bagan Photo Experience.  I have expressed my love for Temples of Bagan previously. I am a strong believer that these temples should be categorized in the top tier of must-see landmarks in the world. I have visited these temples four times beginning in 2005. And I want to go back again. Soon. Bagan was the [...]

Three Days In Burundi

Trekking Gorillas Bwindi Uganda.  The howl.  The whooping.  The sounds projected through the forest.
