Bridge over calm waters

Sunset

The Connecticut Avenue bridge over Rock Creek park on a crisp Thursday evening. A nice interruption to my ride home.

Sundown on Kesroli

Rajasthani peace

We were treated to fantastic views for sunset from the rooftop terrace during our visit to a small fort hotel in Kesroli, Rajasthan earlier this year. For someone who lives and works in the hustle and bustle of the megapolis that is the Delhi region, this respite was priceless.

Sunset over San Cristobal

Clouds break just enough to dazzle

During much of my time in the Galapagos, I shivered away my evenings due to a steady combination of cloudy skies and cold in my bones from too much diving. One evening, however, the clouds broke enough to let the sun shine through.

Sunset on a quiet beach

Isolated and beautiful

Isolated and beautiful

I’ve been in Ft. Dauphin, where the keyboards have the French layout and very few people speak English, for three days now. This, by right of its natural beauty, should be a perfect sun and surf tourism destination. Unfortunately for the local economy, it’s mostly empty (not withstanding the four French guys I met playing foosball who, again, spoke almost zero English).
