Ou et le Musee du Bardo Ou et Monfluery

Yes, precisely where is the Bardo, Tunisia’s finest museum. It is question I asked many, many times this morning and many, many times I was told another 2 stops this way or that on Tunis’ Metro (tram) system. Now I’m no expert on tram systems but one on which there are neither signs on stations or announcements does leave those unfamiliar with the system in some difficulty. In the end, having travelled back on forth between the same 3 stations Read More

The ever present past

Religion has played a powerful role in Paraguay. It is partly due to the church that the Guarani language has survived, although the same church also was the church of the oppressor and slave raiders. The church in Paraguay was like the two headed eagle of the Byzantine Empire, one head condoned the Spanish treatment of the natives in all its cruelty, while the other head spread its wings over the indigenous people and protected them. The head that Read More

Balloon Ministry Feb 15 2014

Several of the women that attend the Calvary Chapel Cuenca (CCC) Women's Bible Study do not attend CCC. One of them heard about our going to the Columbia Refuge School for Children (pictures later) and how we used balloons to break the ice with these kids. She asked if we could help her with getting the word out to the neighborhood about their church. So we went out and just stood along the street in front of the Rotary International building Read More

Welcome to Argentina

Well I am over the novelty of not having to go to work in the morning and am now ready to write... For me coming to Argentina has always been about Patagonia rather than Buenos Aires. (In homage to Bruce Chatwin - if not to hunt for dinosaurs or their remains at least look on the landscape that made such ideas possible). So I did not have many preconceptions about Buenos Aires and only had quite a sketchy idea about what to expect. I had heard Read More

Looking for Love on Tu B’Av Romance in Israel.

Today is February 14th, the day that many in the world celebrate Valentines Day, known as a day of romance and dedicated to lovers. The origins of Valentine's Day are not clear but many sources believe that it stems from the story of St. Valentine, a Roman priest who was martyred on or around February 14 in the year 270 CE. How ahe became the patron saint of lovers still remains a mystery. The ancient form of the ceremony included putting girls’ Read More

The Cuba Trip Santiago de Cuba Camaguey and a final time in La Habana

Santiago de Cuba – The Afro Caribbean part of Cuba – a city of music, history and an edge The road trip to the City is pretty bumpy – reading would make you ill so it’s relax and enjoy the views along with the jolly noise and songs by the African – Cubans who are the majority of folk on the bus. The Landscape is interesting as it’s much more fertile than any other part of Cuba we have seen. There is fresh vegetation everywhere, the land Read More

cooler climes

Welcome to the next travel episode. While my Australian friends have been dripping in over 40 degree heat I have been showing pictures of bush fires and talking about air pollution to some of my students who can say and understand what a bushfire is. Many students want to know why we can’t stop them!? ! My excitement has been through my lifestyle coordinator. She wore me out the week before last with deciding between two contract jobs – one Read More

Calcut Kolkata .. RedLight District

“Nascidos em Bordeis”; procurando Lakshmi; respeito pela profissão; Estou Bem. Hoje fui para Sonagachi, o maior bordel de Calculta. O documentário “Nascidos em Bordeis” foi filmado/baseado neste lugar. Mesmo contra todos os conselhos eu fui. Acho que eu estava em busca de Lakshmi, a garota do livro “Sold – Can she ever be free?”. Chegando lá, quase todos os olhares se voltaram para mim. Resolvi tomar uma água de coco e sentar no Read More

Aruba December 2013

We have been coming to Aruba on an infrequent basis for the past 24 years. In another lifetime we purchased timeshare here and that has afforded us the opportunity to visit this island about 10 times as well as many of the other islands of the Caribbean over that time period through ‘swapping’. Each time we come to Aruba we arrive having taken a firm decision that this will be our last visit and we will sell the timeshare, and then during the Read More

CuscoDoing the Tourist Trot

My first few months in Cusco were spent in lovely meanderings around town, exploring canyons, green hills and ruins above the city, being awed by colorful festivals and volunteering through my Magic Hostel. I leisurely visited the city's museums, colonial mansions and gilded churches and read the wealth of books on Cusco and the Inca in my hostel's library and in the shops of museums I visited (bookshops, my old standby, cruelly sealed Read More
