Canyon conveyance.

Maria is ‘We’ll See!’ envoy to the Mideast. Recently, she and her family were on assignment in Israel and Jordan to document people. Maria took this photo of a local conveyance in the canyons of Petra, and she adds this note:

‘This was taken as we worked our way through the canyons of Petra. I saw this hired horse approaching from a distance so I readied my camera and took the shot once he got into frame.’

Checkered Past Pub.

This past Saturday I joined a genial group of folks for a merry time at the Checkered Past Pub. This group of folks is known as the Cool Internationals, representing various countries, cultures, languages. We sipped wine (Coca-Cola for me), and shared stories about our life in common as fellow humans, as well as stories of our unique cultures. And we listened as a young lady serenaded us with fine old American blues.
