Three Days Sacred Valley Peru.  It was a long overnight flight (3 segments from ORD-SAL-LIM-CUZ) with little sleep. I was excited for my trip to explore the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, and Cusco. I was starting my trip with three nights in Ollantaytambo. While I was planning on spending three nights in Cusco, I decided to [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
