Salvador de Bahia


Blue skies enhance all of the colorful buildings. This was one of my favorite places on our trip to Brazil a few years back. I loved the mix of African and European cultures and the people were so friendly and interesting. Photo taken in December 2007.

Sans Souci


Sans Souci is somewhat like the Versailles of Germany. It was the summer home of Frederick the Great who was an avid supporter of arts and culture, to the displeasure of his military-loving father. You can read more about the palace here. Photo taken in March 2006.

I can never remember how you tell a mule from a donkey, so this guy might actually be a mule. He was seen in the sand dunes in the state of Bahia. Photo taken in January 2007.

Crowned


This is the Crown Room in the Schipol Airport in Amsterdam. The lounge is on the second story and the walls are all glass, so you can look down and see all the travelers hustling and bustling through the airport.
We flew through this airport on our way to Berlin back in June. It is one of the nicest crown rooms I've been to and two of those chairs pushed together made a good place to close your eyes for awhile.
