Aswan Blue



Aswan is a Nubian city in the south of Egypt, on the first cataract of the Nile - where Agatha Christie wrote her murder story.

Here, I fall into a pattern; up at four thirty in the morning; I dress and put my photo gear together.  Then, for eight cents, I take an engine-powered ferry and cross the Nile.   I sit knee to knee, the only white man in a boat filled…

The China Syndrome

A week before our trip, Japan was rocked. The triple whammie was capped by a nuclear “problem” that as of this writing could still result in a meltdown, and possibly burn a hole straight thru the planet.

Book Review: The Wine Seeker's Guide to the Livermore Valley

The Wine Seekers' Guide to the Livermore Valley, by Tom Wilmer was not written for the wine snob. The book is aimed at those of us who don't understand the intricacies of the grape. I found the guide provided clear and helpful information in an easy to read format.



The book serves as the first exclusive guide to this little-known California wine region,… Continue

Kowloon, Lantau and Macau are Not Chinese Menu Items

They are instead three islands near Hong Kong, which my wife and I took whirlwind tours of this week. All three deserve more time, alas our time is limited.

I suppose if we were 25 again, we would sample the night life in Hong Kong, which I hear is responsible for this smile on Buddha.

Happy is as…

For many years, I naively thought I was the only one whose heart skipped a beat at the sight of La Sala, where potted palms and traditional furnishings welcome guests to have a drink and enjoy the ocean…

How Not To Run A Travel Media Lunch

 

How Not To Run A Travel Media Lunch





It may be that I’m hypercritical, but I don’t think so.



After the umpteenth Travel Media/Press lunch,  I declined the last few simply because  they promised to be  photostatic copies of most every other press lunch held.
