Oh, magnificent India.  The highest highs, and the lowest lows.  I am here for my third time.  First, in 2005 for two weeks with an introduction to Delhi, Agra, and Rajasthan.  The second time found me filming my documentary, Hit The Road: India, for over six weeks.  And now, I am back again.  This time in [...]

Faces of Kyrgyzstan

The engine puttered and the propellers came to life.  The engine growl reminded me a bit of the lawn mower I used to push during my college summers.  But this afternoon was going to be a bit more exciting then pushing a mower in the suburbs.  I was strapped in behind the pilot in the second [...]

Penduka And Planeterra, Teaming Up In Namibia.  I have been fortunate to spend time volunteering overseas in Armenia, Thailand, and Tanzania.  The lesson I learned is that I received much more than I gave.  It is an overused statement, but that is because it is true.  While I was volunteering and attempting to “give back”, I [...]
