Temples of Mrauk U – Must-See.  While Myanmar is not quite the off-the-beaten-path location it was a decade or two ago, it still holds many intriguing and beguiling places.  So after you take in the amazing Shwedagon Pagoda and the Temples of Bagan, consider visiting Mrauk U.      Mrauk U is the far less-visited version of [...]

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 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.
