interesting places I have been in Africa, to the bottom and along the top... not too much middle ground.
Andrews Rd, Scott Estate, Cape Town, 7806, South Africa
no matter how much housing is built in South Africa there is always more needed. due to a large influx from Zimbabwe, and other neighboring countries it appears that there will be "unofficial settlements" for a while longer. not all housing in...
Ma'an Governorate, Jordan
Petra Jordan is one of those places that you have to put on any bucket list. I went a decade ago and then dragged my husband there last year because "you can't miss this one" I told him. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade fans will recognize the...
Rue De La Kasbah, Kairouan, Tunisia
we were lucky enough to be invited to lunch at a home in Kairouan, Tunisia. this lovely lady absolutely made our day. my travel buddy and I assumed she (being the grandmother of the family) was tired when she disappeared from the main courtyard of...
Cité Brourmet, Tataouine, Tunisia
one of the best things to do on any trip is to meet local people. one morning near the town of Tataouine, Tunisia we hiked up to a mountain top berber village. no running water, it was carried up from a well down near the road. no electricity, her...
57B Đinh Tiên Hoàng, Hàng Bạc, Hoàn Kiếm, Hà Nội 100000, Vietnam

Sisavangvong Road, Luang Prabang, Laos
I wanted to get as far away from "civilization" as possible. I thought riding an elephant in the jungle of Laos might appease that sentiment. Our safety briefing: "You ride with her, jump on back, ride in river. Water is wet." Uh...OK. They...
The menu painted on the wall of the cafe in the park at the Mides Gorge is pretty much self explanatory. Nothing fancy- but with no competition out here on the Algerian border there is no need for extra frills. Come for the geologic wonder of the...
Rue De La Kasbah, Kairouan, Tunisia
The entrance to Kairouan (spiritual heart of Tunisia) is marked by four giant carpets (made of ceramic tile). If you have interest in handmade carpets (knotted or woven) this is the place in Tunisia. The souks here have everything you can imagine...
Bab Bhar, Tunis, Tunisia
the two weeks my friend and I spent touring Tunisia after the Jasmine Revolution brought us many wonderful experiences but right up near the top of the list would be the incredible food we had throughout Tunisia. Wonderful salads, soups,...
Rue Ahmed El Ayech, Tozeur 2200, Tunisia
Tozuer, Tunisia is a town known for its location near the Sahara, the great dry salt lake and the algerian border. the main shopping street had a lot of local handicrafts but this shop for drinks caught my eye with its colorful display of pretty...
76 Orange St, Gardens, Cape Town, 8001, South Africa
Cape Town's Mount Nelson Hotel is a city icon. And who better to preside over the entrance than another icon? Mahatma Gandhi, who had a strong connection to South Africa (he worked in the country as a young man, and developed his political views...
