This is one of the smaller national game reserves in Uganda and one of the only ones with a larger population of Zebras. It has an acacia woodland landscape and other species other than the zebra, while on safari, I was able to see the eland antelopes. The eland antelopes are a larger species of antelope, they are big and look a little different from the regular antelope. However, Lake Mburo is famous for its Zebras, a large herd of Zebras call this park home. As the name suggests, there is a lake within the park called Mburo. Lake Mburo is the largest if five lakes in the region. The lake allows for crocodiles to breed, and have attracted hippos through the years. Not only will you be able to see the Zebras, but you can now add hippos, buffalo, crocodiles and a variety of bird species. Bird watching safaris are popular so are fishing trips. It is a park is a Savannah grassland, but being in the tropics it is green, colorful and filled with nature's noise The park has accommodation options, should you choose to spend a night in the park. A day safari is all you need unless you plan to fish or go on a weekend getaway. Most tour companies in Kampala offer day safaris or three days safaris to Lake Mburo. I did the day safari on a return journey from Bwindi Impenetrable National Park where I went gorilla tracking. From Kampala, it is a three and a half hours drive to the park.

While it is called a museum, I would look at it more like a z00-museum given the nature and features of this establishment. The Museum is one of Tucson’s main tourist attractions and is visited by hundreds each year. Located on the outskirts of Tucson, it is a natural history museum with animals, botanical garden and birds. It is built to give access to outside trailing through the museum as you enjoy the different species of cacti and desert plants, birds and reptiles. My daughter enjoyed the mountain lions and different kinds of birds. I documented some of the desert plants. It is a great place for families with children and admission fees are quite reasonable. If you like nature, plants, animals, art, or good food, then this is the place for you! It is a perfect place to learn about the Sonoran Desert and enjoy a great walk.

Another Cheese Cake Factory within a week, can you tell I’m becoming addicted? Well this one was a lucky one since I did not know there was one in Fairfax, a town only a few minutes from where we are in Herndon. We were going shopping at the big Mall in Fairfax, when we decided to have a small meal at the Cheese Cake Factory on the ground level of the Mall. This one was much more impressive and bigger than the one in Baltimore. It looked like one of those high priced restaurants in New York. The interior was warm, clean and chic. It was early in the evening (5:00 pm) so it was not busy, save for a few people sitting outside. It was a beautiful day too with little moisture in the air, making the outside sitting the preferred sitting for all that arrived at that time. We did exactly what we did in Baltimore; ordered soup, salad and one appetizer. We did not want to get too filled up to not have our cheese cake. Mark and I ordered the soup of the day, which happened to be a delicious French mushroom soup, while Desire went for the Greek salad. To this we added 1 appetizer, a plate of mussel. The cheese cake orders changed as well; I ordered the lemon-raspberry cheese cake instead of the ultimate red velvet cake. Mark changed to the Chocolate cheese cake, while Desire had the Pinacolada instead of the mango-key lime. The portions are big. The welcome and wait staff were pleasant and polite. The lady that served us was one of the most pleasant service people I have encountered in any restaurant in the last 4 years. She knew what she was doing. She was courteous, polite and friendly; she had a conversation with us but knew not to over step her bounds, checked in with us to make sure all was going well, and wished us a great evening after our meal was done. I really did not see or experience anything negative while at the restaurant. PS: “If it looks good, eat it” – Andrew Zimmerman.

This is a must see when in Baltimore. We started our tour of the 4 ships here. I thought it was the best of all 4 because of it's history and timeline. During its high time, it was charged with intercepting vessels engaged in slave trade off the coast of west Africa. History of the ship records that while in West African waters, the Constellation captured 3 slave ships, 1 of which had on board 705 African slaves destined for the Americas. We started the tour with a short time at the museum right at the entrance. It is a one way in and another out so no coming back to where you entered. Take time to look at the museum, it is informative and has some artifacts from way back when. The ship has four different levels each with interesting functions. I took quite a few shots at different levels, see if you can identify anything you see. Highly recommended.

This Landmark is currently closed, its been closed since 2010 so there is no access to the inside. No one seems to know why the monument is closed, but I found out online that there was a car crash that damaged the fence in early 2010. Nonetheless we were able to see it from the outside. It was the very first planned memorial to commemorate George Washington, one of the founding fathers of the nation. It precedes the one in Washington, DC. It is located across the street from Walter's Art Museum in Mount Vernon. It was designed in 1829 by architect Robert Mills. Since we did not go inside, I can not confirm or deny the fact that there are 228 or 239 stairs to the top; I will say I was really bummed not to be able to go inside. No idea when it will be reopened to the public. But should you visit while it is opened, remember to be in good physical shape prior to attempting the climb. It is a great memorial, I look forward to going back before leaving the East coast.

The World Trade Center, Baltimore houses the 9/11 memorial on the top level of the building. Popularly referred to as the 'Top of the World', it is also an observation deck for the whole harbor area and Baltimore. My family and I, made a detour while on our way to tour the Lightship Chesapeake. It was more out of wanting to see the Harbor from above, that we learned of the 9/11 memorial. It offers a 360 degree view, a panoramic view of all of Baltimore and the harbor. A must if you would like to see the beauty of Baltimore at a bird's eye view level.

This religious attraction in Baltimore is a National Historic Landmark, the first Roman Catholic Cathedral built in the United States. Built between 1806-1821, it stands as a testimony of faith and a strong hold of spirituality for believers of the catholic faith. The cathedral is beautiful inside and outside. We did not go on a guided tour as it was closing for the day, however tours are offered daily. On Saturdays, the cathedral admin asks that you call ahead if possible for the 2 scheduled tours of the day. Now it is okay to just go by, they will not turn you away, it is a sanctuary after all. Daily masses held at the cathedral, so if you are around and about, you can attend mass. It has been a while since I went to mass. Even though I was born and raised Catholic, I do not go for mass as religiously as a devout catholic should. I do my prayers though and take my children to a non-denominational Bible Church. I love Cathedrals, they are the one religious attraction I look to tour in any town, city or country I travel to. This particular Basilica reminds me of France and Italy. It was raised to the rank of the Basilica by Pope Pius XI in 1937 and listed in the National Registry of Historic Places in 1969 and declared a National Historic Landmark in 1971. In 1993 a conference of catholic Bishops decided to vote it a National Shrine, thus making it the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Quite a mouth full, but this is the official name of the Basilica. In 200 years, the Cathedral has been visited by innumerable people including the late Mother Teresa, late Pope John Paul II. Millions continue to visit it. I recommend you do, if you find yourself in Baltimore. "Do not leave for tomorrow, what you can do today" Happy Travels!
