Washington, DC – June 1999

chevron_right

June Highlights June; summer heat, hordes of tourists and residents escaping the city. For those of us who wish to brave the heat and tourists, DC makes summer bearable with a full agenda as it gears up for the unforgettable 4th of July Celebration (more on that later).

Bali, Indonesia – May 1999

chevron_right

Bali adventures begin and end in the country…far away from Kuta, Denpasar and the cities. A glorious month of living and traveling on the little island of Bali proved our instincts were correct in staying away from the crowds. Denpasar sports a major airport; great to get in and out of the country. But that’s […]

Berlin, Germany – May 1999

chevron_right

Berlin – a city, a wall, a lifestyle There is good reason why I am a Berliner by choice.

If you skim thourgh any of the recommended literature you will have the following passage almost everywhere: “Hungary […]

Cape Town, South Africa – May 1999

chevron_right

I had a lot of misconceptions about Cape Town. I imagined a dusty, dry place, dotted with big game reserves and ghettoes housing poor “Blacks”. I thought the “Whites” would be the most boorish, racist, unsophisticated lugs imaginable, and that nightlife would be reduced to chugging a few brews and munching some Boerwurst sausage. I […]

Chicago, Illinois – May 1999

chevron_right

Spring is here! Officially, Spring arrived back in March-although in Chicago that doesn’t mean jack. But now that the temperatures are hovering around the mid-70s, it can be safe to assume that winter is finally over, and people from the city are flocking to the glorious shores of Lake Michigan to hang out and have […]
