The Less Known Egypt

Thursday, November 12th, 2020

I must state first that writing a TRAVEL posting regarding Egypt can be very intimidating given the amount of material starting with the country’s prominent position in ancient history up until the current Middle East’s political and religious mayhem. While it is very easy to simply write about the well-known architectural and geographical attractions of the country (e.g., pyramids, sphinx, the Nile), there is a broad variety of lessor known topics that provide the interstitial matter to construct a meaningful picture of this amazing country.

Villefranche Sur Mer: Without

Monday, October 12th, 2020

In this second of 2 TRAVEL postings that focuses on the Cote d’ Azur between Villefranche sur Mer and Monaco, I am providing my continuing thoughts regarding my favorite part of the world in the summer months. The first posting addressed within Villefranche sur Mer, which is just East of Nice. This second posting addresses four villages, aka communes, that reside in the shadows between Villefranche and Monaco, including Beaulieu sur Mer, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferret, Eze, and Cap-d’Ail.
