Happy New Year! Wrapping up 2014 in photos...

http://revtravel.com/photography/travels-of-2014-looking-back/
 A bus full of young Buddhist nuns in Yangon, Myanmar, one of my first stops for the year for an article on colonial architecture. In the northern hemisphere, the new year always arrives in the midst of winter, days I find well suited for reflection and being home with friends and family. It's a

A bit of history of Emperors in Vietnam and a visit to their capital city: Hue

Last May I visited the fantastic Zeugma Mosaic Museum in Gaziantep, Turkey. Here's a little photo gallery of the mosaics. The largest collection in the world, they say. 
http://www.themadtraveleronline.com/photo-galleries/zeugma-mosaic-museum-gaziantep-turkey/
When plans to build a dam on the Euphrates threatened flooding for all these mosaics, efforts were made to relocate them to a museum. (Some remain in Zeugma, flooded and not flooded, with new ones being discovered from time to time as well.) Completed in 2011, the Zeugma Mosaic Museum offers

My article about colonial architecture in Yangon, Myanmar

Colonial Architecture in Yangon, Myanmar I stroll through the streets of Yangon, past men and women still wearing the traditional longyi, a wraparound skirt. A vendor spins a large iron wheel and its inertia pulls sugar cane through rollers, extracting the juice for a waiting customer. Buddhist

Women can be whirling dervishes? Depends on who you ask...

http://www.themadtraveleronline.com/articles/women-as-dervishes-in-turkey/
Right away the observer notices there is something not quite normal about this whirling dervish group. Two of the members in the center stand out; one with a bright orange dress, the other with a lime green skirt twirling about. But there’s something else. When I peer into the turning

Back in 1998, while overnighting in Antakya, Turkey (Antioch!), I got up early before our afternoon bus into Syria -- the setting for my worst travel illness experience ever -- to go visit the local museum. I was blown away by the mosaics there, not fully aware of just how many existed in Turkey,
