See me almost disappear in the ... Grand canyon
And almost swallowed up in the San Diego zoo.
Other pictures from my USA travels
there this June-July for
two weeks and stayed mostly in bed and breakfasts.
Check the yidaki (didgeridoo) music.
Besides the penguins I especially loved the Aboriginal art.
Was there February '96. |
Like Indiana Jones I was impressed by Petra. A must visit. I believe it is one of the marvels of the world. It has the charms of the Grand Canyon but also the addition of human hands' creation. What a great combination
|My third, if not second home. |
I spent there 5 years of high school plus 1 year in 1991-92.
I stop there every year on my way to Israel.
|In September, 1994, we celebrated there our 26th year high school reunion. It was wonderful to renew ties with my old school mates.|
Nepal is one of my favorite places. Untouched by civilization, high peeks and ancient temples had a magical charm. I hear that now, with the advent of cars it is more crowded, noisy and polluted.
Japan--Such a different culture despite its modernism. I especially loved its food, and was most impressed by the work ethics.
Korea--Seoul is a very busy place. Charming people.
Hong-Kong--A most beautiful city. Very cheap too.
Iran--Was there for one day only under the Shah regime. Had a bad experience as a western woman.
Egypt--Very strange experiences for an Israeli-American in Cairo. Our hotel was near the pyramids. The moon over these ancient stones at night, and my afternoon at the pool represented just such a wonderful and strange combination.
What a wonderful continent that now I appreciate even
after having traveled the US. Every few miles one encounters another
momentum of a rich history. |
What a rich and diversified culture in each of these countries: France (see Paris), Belgium, Luxemburg, Netherlands (see Nijmegen), Tcheck Republic (see Prague), Scandinavia, Spain, Italy, Rumania, , the Cotwolds in England and London, Ireland (see my Irish pictures from trips to Dublin and around the country), Scotland, Ireland, Austria (see Vienna), etc.
|Haven't been yet to Greece (my Mom was born in Salonica.) Just visited Istanbul in Turkey for 2 days in May '99 (my Father's family came from there to Israel more than a hundred years ago during the Ottoman Empire).|
Have been to Morrocco for one interesting day, and Egypt (above). Almost made it to Guinea but unfortunately the trip got delayed indefinitely.
Fortunately, have received a Fulbright award to lecture and do research in Benin, Africa, 2003-2004.
Visited Cozumel Dec. 2000, for one short day from a 4-day cruise.
Visited Oaxaca in March '97 where we finally exercised our little Spanish, visited ruins, shopped in authentic markets, saw some museums and galleries and sat in outdoor cafes.
I was in Acapulco and Cancun mostly to relax, see some history and get good food and tan.
Nogales and Tijuana were visited for shopping purposes.
Bahamas and Carribean Islands They are as dreamful as one reads about. Have just taken a cruise there.
Hawaii Have been several times to Honolulu and Kawaii Island. Going to Mauii this summer '99.
