Expanding to Europe

I've been doing a lot of traveling and am excited to be expanding to Eastern Europe on a more frequent basis. I'll be doing a lot of photography and have a particular interest in Eastern Europe and its history. I'll still work in the USA but my schedule will be more limited in the future as I will be traveling back and forth. At some point I will likely move and do more travel and photography in the surrounding area like the Middle East, North Africa, Central Europe, and perhaps some of the 'Stan countries. Eastern Europe captured my attention as soon as I arrived the first time. Its history is particularly interesting to me. The architecture is also quite interesting and features a lot of golden domes that remind me of Arabian nights or some Persian fairytale. Isn't it amazing? I can't wait to do more photography and general exploration of this part of the world. I've learned so

This is Africa: Arrival and First Impressions

That was a long series of flights! I took off from Washington Dulles around 10am and flew directly to Addis Ababa, capital of Ethiopia. This was a 12 hour flight. Addis Ababa is on the eastern side of Africa, and the first thing I noticed in the airport airport was the number of Chinese tourists. About half of the people there were African, then maybe 35% were Chinese, with some Indian, European, and Americans as the rest. Interesting! So after about a 2 hour layover, I had to fly back to the western side of Africa to Abuja, Nigeria on a 4.5 hour flight. My body was so confused after all the back and forth, I didn’t even know what time or day it was when I arrived at Abuja because I had been through so many timezones! Here is a photo arriving into Ethiopia :) Isn't the engine cool? On the tarmac in Ethiopia. Loved walking out and getting

Running the Mad Dash in Belgrade, Serbia

It was a lovely spring day in Belgrade. I found Belgrade to be so quiet, calm, and peaceful. And very clean and beautiful. Also had all these intriguing soviet vestiges. One thing I did notice here though were all the refugees sleeping in parks. When I first got off the train and was walking trying to find the hostel, I was walking through a park and noticed all these blankets strewn about everywhere. On a second look, I realized that people were sleeping in them. I wasn't expecting it so I was a little surprised but it took a second to see that these folks were all refugees and I almost felt a little rude walking through the park as I didn't want to disturb them. Below is a photo of one of the parks. Near the station there were a few parks and the other ones were even more full. When the hostel told me there wasn't any room
