Morocco tour – No 4.

Hope this is not getting boring, but with a little down time and fast internet. I am able to finish the images I promised. Doors and windows. All of these images were photographed at the Kasbah of the Udayas. You go through a Massive gate way and the roads wind down to the sea front….

Morocco No 3.

Photographs of the things I viewed in the Souks. I finally sat and had a mint tea, grabbing the sun as much as I could. The last place I visited was the Museum and Gallery. I walked on tiles magnificent, trying to ignore my painful foot. On to the photography Museum, a delicious late lunch…

I’m here with 60 other like minded people, husbands, wives and friends to experience the magic of Morocco. The group arrived yesterday and today we formally begin…

A few hours in Narita.

  Yesterday, we had a short one day stop over in Japan en route  to Bangkok. We were supposed to have a day and a half, but leaving ones passport in a hire car put paid to that unfortunately and rescheduling gave us less time to explore. Traveling from the USA to Bangkok, our fare…

Spaghetti for Breakfast.

  One of the things about travel… specially in the USA is that I can make one purchased meal last for three meals. Lunch at Olive Garden yesterday provided dinner and breakfast this morning. Yes, spaghetti for breakfast this morning. I stay in hotels for a large part of the year and I like to…
