Very nice photos. I have never seen most of that. Like those cast statues in Philly. The indian and the bison.
Another great trip for you.
So, how did it feel to be president? Leader of the free world. Weight of the world on your shoulders. I hope you weren't sitting there signing some document that would raise taxes.
Washington, Philadelphia, New York. Great itinerary.
I visited the Lincoln Memorial with family when I was about 12. Did you read the Gettysburg Address? Four score and twenty years ago.....
It was 150 years ago that he South fired on Fort Sumpter, a federal fort in Charleston Harbor, starting the civil war.

Excellent, I look forward to reading about your adventures too. You are a real modern day Marco Polo.
Have fun peregrinating.... :-) ....you have to look it up....It is a word that we never use, but nonetheless, I think it is a great word.
Crossing fingers, saying a little prayer too.
I'll make sure to follow your blog.
I admire your intrepidness.

Thanks Glenn. Tomorrow we are "peregrinating" from Borneo to Java for a week, and then... half day in Singapore, 1 day in Kuala Lumpur, and looong flight back home.

Just got back from a small trip myself to New Orleans - will probably see my friend this evening. Interesting word "peregrinating" - comes from peregrine (as in peregrine falcon) and can mean traveler - can also mean pilgrim. I am a direct descendant of Peregrine White who was born on board the Mayflower in Provincetown Bay.
