Assorted Travels with Carol & Rick 

Anything goes at the Freak Show on Venice Beach. This lady and her slithering friends were boldly outside hustling customers for the $5 show behind the curtain. Ironically, on the flight back home, we watched a Dog Whisperer episode where the owners of this very same Freak Show had a five-legged, holy terror little dog that needed the help of Ceasar Millan's to settle down. The owners seemed like fun-loving, nice people.

Trekking up Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

Summiting 19,340 ft., Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania . . . . in front, Zeinab, Egyptian born and living in Salt Lake City and, left to right, in front,  Edward, assistant guide, Kevin, from LA, Kaen Kapange, head guide with his 157th summit of Kilimanjaro, Rick, and Peter, from Denver. Tony, from Boston, was on his way and would also summit, making it five for five in our group. Another group of eight in our company had seven reach the top. We made the Trek with Thomson Safaris. Peter speculated the accomplishment wouldn't really hit us until later, some weeks down the road, when we'd returned to civilization. It was true that there wasn't a lot of time to loiter, not at this altitude. Get it done, get back down.

Travelling in Italy, 2007

The way it ended in Italy . . . . . a mellow but fleeting moment in a day in the life of a Milan cafe  . . . . . reflections in a window. Lots of stories in this picture if you take the time to dissect it.  As a sidebar, this picture appeared in the September, 2008 issue of Photo Life Magazine as a contest winner in their "Reflections" competition.
