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 [...]

Shwedagon Pagoda – Must-See.  A soft wind lessened the effects of the thick heat while the chimes on top of the stupa gently sang.  The dense throngs had thinned, and a tranquil spirit drifted through the grounds. I was at the tremendously beautiful and moving Shwedagon Pagoda, the holiest site in Myanmar (formally known as Burma).  [...]

Tikal-Must-See.  The thick jungle canopy ate all light. Moments ago I sat atop Temple IV bathed in twilight. I was the only person left at the top of the limestone temple. My new Sony camera was perched on top of my tripod grabbing the last moments of light. A stubbly security guard graced with a shotgun [...]

My Visit To Aleppo.  The dated bus rumbled down the highway. My head lazily leaned against the window, the sun tanning my face. Next to me sat a Syrian soldier. I had just spent the day visiting Krak des Chevaliers and Ma'loula. Krak des Chevaliers is an extremely well-preserved 12th century Crusader Castle. And Ma'loula is [...]
