New York, New York, USA
Dec 21, 2013 – Dec 23, 2013
Going to New York for Christmas has been on my bucket list forever. This year, I am determined to actually do it. Check out the decorations. See some theatre. It should be great.
Hopefully, I will make it to the Aloha State sometime in 2014.

Most Memorable Travel Experience
While I have enjoyed many memorable travel experiences (looking up from the swimming pool at Elephant Sands, Botswana and seeing a herd of elephants frolicking in a watering hole just feet away; seeing a lioness and her cubs feasting on a dead elephant at Chobe National Park near Kasane, Botswana; Victoria Falls; Yosemite Valley), my experience in Wadi Rum has to take the prize as the single most memorable one. I was the only guest in a Bedouin camp on a cold November evening. After dinner, my host asked if I would mind if he joined me so that he could practice his English. I welcomed him and invited his two colleagues (who turned out to be his brothers) who did not speak English to join us around the wood burning stove since it was so cold. For the next three hours the four of us talked -- actually communicating -- even though I spoke no Arabic and two of the brothers spoke no English. We laughed. We shared tea. It was a remarkable evening -- demonstrating that communication and friendship is possible if we give it a chance.
