A Partial List

This list has been sitting around, written, since May. But since I'm kindof busy today and don't feel like writing anything original. . .you get to read it.

Things I would like to do before I die.

        o The Orient Express.
        o Scotland - to breath the air.

* Africa:
        o Morroco. Casablanca especially.
        o A Photo-Safari in South Africa.
        o Egypt. The Pyramids, but mainly the cities and the statues.
        o Just once, maybe, if my life becomes worth less than the paper it's printed on, I'll set out to travel through the war-torn heart of Africa. To see what adventures I would find there.
