    You did not do anything wrong. Notice the silence. (;-). Keep up the good work. We can all benefit from your pointers .... even those of us with a degree in photography ... maybe especially those of us with a degree in photography, who dealt with ‘silver halides’, not ‘digits’.

    Hello Diane! I’ll be on that trip starting a week or two later. I think mine was a tour added much later than the ones seen in the 2018 brochure because the advertised tours had filled up quickly. I’d be happy to read any tips you may have. I hope you have gotten off to a wonderful start!

We heard that we missed seeing a gathering of a thousand wildebeest that the pilot had wanted to show us. He apologized that we could not get the basket over the hill to see the sight.

Balloon flying over Kenya is definitely safer than balloon flying over the Valley of the Kings in Luxor (Egypt) where so many other balloon rides ended up in farmers' fields (or elsewhere). Tauck had an excellent balloon pilot for that trip so we had no worries. Of course, the wind was perhaps not as strong as it was in Kenya.

If there is no music in the environment, there is still always some melody playing in my head. I know many others share this condition. People talk about earworms, tunes that seem to lodge in your head and keep p...

For me growing up in America, the cultural footprint of Spain was so broad and deep that it almost faded into invisibility. My first history lesson said that Columbus discovered America and claimed it for Spain. I learned to take that assertion with a grain of salt, but it is true that Spain kicked off the wave of exploration and colonization ...
