  • Turkey trip to visit friends and tried to find the plate for Ruby!

  • Here's the commerical - Experience the magic of Morocco on a day trip (13 hours) to Tangier from Spain's Costa del Sol. Morocco lies just over the Mediterranean, but this exotic North African gem feels like a world away! Your full day adventure includes lunch, walking tours of the souk, Medina and Kasbah, shopping at a bazaar, and return ferry transfers - it's the ultimate value for a day in Morocco. To do this, I had to fly into Malaga and stayed at Torremolinos for next day trip. It's worth the money ($98). I can add that shops (aka peddlers) come to you & you do not have to shop in the town while I was in Tangier.
    Photos taken on the trip.!
    Here's a YouTube link to FRS ferry in Tarifa <> Tangier and is very well done (3min)!

  • Lisbon, Portugal weekend trip and met up with Bevy & Phil who flew in from Germany!

Travel with Charlie Photos - 2010

December 2010: Mery Christmas or Feliz Navidad to you all.

This is a 6-minute video on the uniqueness of New Mexico Christmas. A luminaria or a farolito is a small light or lantern (commonly a candle set in some sand inside a paper bag). These are typically arranged in rows to outline paths and homes.
The hope is that the lights will guide the spirit of the Christ child to one's home. Click here to launch the video.
