My purpose for creating this site was to allow my family to track my activities ... since 'phoning home' was not an easy task in some of the places I have visited.  Along the way I also found that friends & visitors to this site were able to learn from my travels, both good & bad.

So, welcome to this site and I hope you somehow benefit from the visit; the newest is listed first.
