My daughter is a doctor working in Africa, along with her husband, and both own and maintain a farm in Zimbabwe, outside of Harare. I visit them once or twice a year. I put together this video tour featuring all the usual farm animals like goats, pigs, cows, and chickens... but also ginnea fowl and peacocks not usually found on a farm here in the United States. Please watch and enjoy the tour.
Memories are valuable and priceless parts of our lives. They heavily reflect who we are and what keeps us together. How will you preserve such memories so they won't fade?
The fact that memories are fleeting and fickle must be heart-wrenching for us. There's a possibility that significant memories might deteriorate over time if not handled carefully. If you cannot preserve such memories, you and the people you care about will eventually forget them. That's why it's a good thing that photography was invented during the earlier centuries so that we can keep a pocket-sized paper of someone's face in our frames and their smiles in our hearts.

Madagascar is best known for its unique wildlife and biodiversity. It is home to an abundance of flora and fauna species found nowhere else on earth.

What would be nicer than to go home to a place where you can feel comfortable, and have nice surroundings?
Having pieces of art in your home can make this possible. Art will help you add a personal touch to your home, attaching a piece of who you are. You may add a piece of memory or a feeling as art never fails to evoke emotions whenever we look at it. Imagine looking at something of value to you after a long day at work. It could definitely be something that you'll look forward to every time you come home.
When photography was first introduced to the world, a heated debate began in terms of whether it was a form of art or not.
Fortunately, we live in an era where people are more socially aware of it as an art. In fact, it has made art accessible to the general public and changed society's visual culture. This has made art more valuable each year that passes. The growing number of people who have the enthusiasm for collecting photography prints worldwide has grown as well. Photography prints are less expensive than painting. Hence, many would opt for choosing prints over paintings.

Everyone had images in their mind of what to expect. Conversations about Cuban culture, classic cars, architecture, government, people, food rationing, Cuban cigars, Cuban rum abounded. Cuba is defined by all of that, and more.
The flight from Miami to Cuba took all of 40 minutes. We went through a People to People tour, which are now allowed to travel from the US to Cuba. After landing, our tour guide took us straight to our hotel, the Ambos Mundos, in Old Havana. Music from a piano drifted out the open door as we entered. The musician was an elderly man with long gnarled fingers and played Sinatra music beautifully. The most interesting part of the hotel was the ancient elevator with the wrought iron gates that the elevator porter closed to lock everyone in on the way up. We all wondered what our rooms would be like; if the elevator would conk out on the way up; if there was air conditioning; what was the food like? Many questions swarmed through our heads before each of us arrived at our separate rooms.
