Brief Pictorial Essay (Part Two)

The first trip I took overseas was in 1980.  The photographs I have are unspectacular, but do capture the memories.  The same can be said for many trips I took prior to obtaining my first digital camera.  A common theme with the pre-digital photos I notice is how even when I was younger I tended to photograph people, not just monuments, and scenery.  Some pictures I used to represent a country in this essay are similar to those posted in the prior one insofar they do not depict monuments, or landmarks, but rather people in their environment.  Again, I did include several scenic pictures, and this time added photographs of myself.  I did so not for vanity, but rather the availability of pictures for some destinations in my library are rather minimal except for a few with me shown center stage.  One must make difficult decisions in such situations.

This post is entitled Part Two, and it will also be the final Pictorial Essay.  I have one more presentation of countries & territories to post to complete the 'Birth to Present' listing of destinations visited.  The next posting will be entitled Destinations Visited...So Far, and will end this preview series of postings.

The plan going forward will be the Blog itself.  My intention is to begin to tell the story of my travels beginning with that first trip I took in 1980, and go from there.  It should be quite a ride, as I have lots of stories I have been recalling.  I have been pondering whether some details should be left untold, or not.  I guess it will have to depend on how I feel, and perhaps if anyone out there is reading this.  For those of you who are, I do hope you are finding it enjoyable!
