Battle Lines Are Drawn in Germantown, Pennsylvania -- Again

Cannon roar and belch fire and smoke. Eyes sting and blur, trying to make sense of the forms emerging through the haze. Hundreds of men march down the cobblestoned street, ten or more across, wearing red and carrying muskets - and now they halt - kneel - and fire!

Thrilling and terrifying, despite the knowledge that it is all smoke and no real ammunition, this is the annual reenactment of the…

Surfing in the Seychelles

Surfing in Seychelles can really be an amazing experience for a surfer looking for a non crowded scene. The water is warm year round, but it is recommended that you bring a long sleeved rash guard... the sun is intense! Most of the breaks are over coral reefs, so reef booties can be useful.

Seychelles has two seasons and these are wind seasons. The North-West Monsoon and the South-East Monsoon. The North-West Monsoon blows from Mid-October to Mid-May. The South-East Monsoon blows… Continue

Cairo, Egypt

After our Barcelona/Paris trip in the spring of ‘08 we were trying to figure out where our Thanksgiving trip would be. We started punching in airports to see where we could get a reasonable fare to and Cairo came

up. A new continent, exciting culture; and the Pyramids- I was very

excited! We flew from Minneapolis to Amsterdam and had 8 hours to spend

in the city walking around. Amsterdam is a great layover spot and is

really easy to take the train from the airport to have…

Changing the Image of Sierra Leone, West Africa, through Tourism

Western perceptions of African countries are shaped by the media focus on the events that take place within its borders. Let’s take the example of Sierra Leone which was ravaged by civil war for 11 years from 1991 to 2002. The stories of atrocity and bloodshed were given high coverage by the western media.

In 2006 Hollywood highlighted the plight of the people in Sierra Leone by making the film Blood Diamond. This told the story…
