La Boca Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires
Photographed in Argentina

Located in the Buenos Aires southeast corner near the port, La Boca is synonymous with fun for visitors. Eye-popping colourful houses dominate the street, which are pedestrian friendly, and tango artists perform just about everywhere. Of course, vendors selling tango-related memorabilia adds to the festive environment.

Worldly Vistas: Westfjords

Westfjords, Iceland

Westfjords
Photographed in Iceland

The Westfjords, located in northwestern Iceland and facing Greenland,  is a very mountainous region with the coastline heavily indented by dozens of fjords surrounded by steep hills.

But, everything seems surprising flat…at least the tops of the fjords, that is.

Now a musuem, it’s antiquities are well protected and a worthwhile site to see.

Worldly Vistas: Seoul

Cherry Blossoms

Cherry Blossoms

Photographed in Seoul, South Korea

As we say goodbye to Spring, it’s a great time to take one last look at a last look at one of my springtime favorites—cherry blossoms! Always a favorite while I lived in Washington, DC, I find myself drawn to them whenever I see them in bloom around the world.

Worldly Vistas: Lichen

Lichen covered rock, Antarctica

Lichen-Covered Rocks
Photographed in Antarctica

Antarctica has more than snow, seals and penguins, though that might just be a penguin on the top of that rock!

Lichens grow in many areas of Antarctica. This shows how lichen can colonize an area, forming patterns and add interesting color to the rocks jutting out of the snow.

Worldy Vistas: Dunes

Saharan San Dunes, Morocco

Saharan Sand Dunes
Photographed in Morocco

 

The Sahara is the largest “hot” desert and the third largest desert in the world! What? you may be wondering. What could be larger? As it turns out, two “cold” deserts—Antarctica and the Arctic. How big is the Sahara? BIG! It’s about the area of the US, and stretches from the Atlantic Ocean in the west all the way to the Red Sea in the east.

Our first glimpse and climb of these sand dunes were overwhelming. I’ve seen deserts before, but nothing on this scale. And, when you realize that it continues through ten countries (Algeria, Chad, Egypt, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Sudan, and Tunisia), it’s impossible to grasp its scope. It’s something to experience and appreciate its magnitude.

Worldly Vistas: Tallinn

Tallinn, Estonia

Tallinn
Photographed in Estonia

Located on the Baltic Sea, Estonia’s capital retains its walled and cobblestoned Old Town. From up on the hill, it looks like a fairytale town, with its 15th century towers standing guard. At ground level, there are quaint streets with cafes, shops, old churches and the Gothic town hall.

Tallinn is the oldest capital on the Baltic. And, although part of the former USSR, it maintained its unique heritage. The Old Town is a UNESCO-protected site.

Worldly Vistas: Antelope Canyon

Lower Antelope Canyon, Arizona

Lower Antelope Canyon
Photographed in Arizona

Calling Antelope Canyon a slot canyon is minimizing its grandeur. Yes. it is a slot canyon, but really it is THE slot canyon: THE one to see; THE one to photograph; THE one to admire.

Located on Navajo land, the Lower Canyon is called Hasdestwazi, “spiral rock arches.” Unlike the upper canyon, which is a straight walk directly into it, reaching the lower canyon is through a ladder system that has been bolted in place. Still, not a place for someone with a fear of heights.
