  1. :) I wish to see Babylon too someday and walk the streets of Jerusalem and follow the trail that Sherlock Holmes did in the Scandinavian mountains and climb up on the world’s highest plateu in Tibet (Pamir) called the roof of the world, and be inside a pyramid, and stand on the banks of a Himalayan lake at Amarnath and lie on the grass in a park in the US and watch the sky from that position :) I have lived in snake infested tropics and we never ever lie or sit on the grass here

    • LOL – yes, you don’t lay down in some places. Have you ever read Mark Twain’s The Innocents Abroad? It is his bibliographical account of the adventures he found on the world’s first luxury cruise (akin to the big white cruise ships we see today in the world’s favorite ports). On this cruise, he sailed from New York to the Azores, Gibraltar, Spain, France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Russia (Ukraine), Syria, Palestine, Egypt, Algeria, Morocco, etc. It was a few month trip and his explanations of the people – while quite politically incorrect by today’s standards – are really quite hysterical. Interestingly, many of the places have changed a lot, and some haven’t changed at all.
