Visiting the children’s circus in Kabul. Life goes on. People wake up. Put their clothes on. And they go about their day. Yet, some people have to overcome much larger challenges every single day. Over one billion people live on $1 a day. Tens of millions have been forced to flee their homes. Others in Yemen [...]

Watching Buzkashi In Afghanistan

By |2019-12-08T20:07:11-06:00November 27th, 2019|Categories: Asia, Unique Experiences|

Watching Buzkashi in Afghanistan. Buzkashi is not a sport for the faint-hearted. Think of polo on horses, but the ball is dead goat, missing its head. Men on horses compete fiercely to grab the goat off the ground (or from a competitor) and race to the goal while fending off other players. In Farsi, Buzkashi [...]

Exploring The Aral Sea In Uzbekistan

Exploring The Aral Sea In Uzbekistan. When the name Uzbekistan slips into the conversation, images of the Silk Road waltz through my mind. I conjure pictures from Samarkand, Bukhara, and Khiva of ancient walled cities, ancient mosques, and azure-tiled minarets. Yet, there is more to explore in Uzbekistan than just the Silk Road. [...]

Meeting Prince James And Liam Of The Principality Of Sealand.  Let’s face it, many people around the world are fascinated with the royals. Just think of the obsession with Princes Diana or the weddings of Harry & Meghan and William & Kate. Royal family intrigue is not typically of interest to me, but I had [...]

Visiting The Wagah Border Ceremony From Pakistan And India

By |2019-09-30T09:49:59-06:00September 28th, 2019|Categories: Asia, Unique Experiences|

What you need to know when visiting Wagah Ceremony from Pakistan India.  Part Dancing With The Stars and part Battle Rap, the Wagah-Attari border ceremony exceeded my high expectations. The Wagah-Attari border is currently the only open land border crossing between India and Pakistan, two long-term rivals ever since their independence in 1947. It takes place [...]

Visiting The Fukushima Disaster Area

Visiting Fukushima Disaster Area.  There are some things which you simply don’t really want to score well at. Avoiding the highest rating within the International Nuclear Event Scale is a worthwhile endeavor. Chernobyl was given the highest classification, Level 7. Only one other nuclear disaster received the same calamitous rating and that was the Fukushima Daiichi [...]

In 1993, George Costanza, the fictional character on Seinfeld, brought to the masses the risks and dangers of “double-dipping”. No one has ever looked at a bowl of salsa the same way.  Eating Kushikatsu Osaka and no double dipping in Osaka. But, it appears the original harbinger of double-dipping [...]
