Splitting the blog   Leave a comment


I have decided to start several different blogs with different topics.  So beside Peripatetic Consultant look for Peripatetic Tourist and Peripatetic at Home.  I plan to copy some of the earlier blogs so that they are more easily sorted.  I also may split up the Peripatetic Consultant into geographic regions, e.g., Peripatetic Consultant – Kenya.

http://peripateticconsultantkenya.wordpress.com/ – Kenya

http://peripateticconsultanttogo.wordpress.com/ – Togo

http://peripateticathomeromania.wordpress.com/ – Romania

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,200 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 37 trips to carry that many people.

Day 4, Sunday, 27 May – Driving to UND   Leave a comment


Today we only had a couple of miles of interstate highway driving.  Almost the whole trip was on secondary US highways and state highways.  This is my favourite kind of driving.  The scenery was mainly farmland and pastureland with a few hills here and there.  However, the mostly flat terrain was broken up by the Missouri River.  Here are some pictures.

The next picture proves that we were there   : – )

Day 3, Saturday, 26 May – Driving to UND   Leave a comment


Today was a shorter day.  We spent several hours with Darlene’s daughter, Gloria, and her husband, Frank, in Longmont, Colorado.  Geri, Howard and Darlene went to North Platte’s Bailey Rairoad Yard, which is the largest railroad yard in the world.  Here are some photos Geri took from the Golden Spike Observation Tower.

From about noon time on Friday until noon time on Saturday there was lower than normal visibility caused by smoke from forest fires.

Later in the day we stopped at a rest stop in New Mexico to use the bathrooms.  The buildings were up on stilts with an interesting sign.

Day 1, Thursday, 24 May – Driving to UND (part 1)   Leave a comment


Geri and I and her folks, Howard and Darlene are driving from Tucson, Arizona to Grand Forks, North Dakota.  I am teaching two translation courses – Translation of Texts and Sign Language Translation.  Today we travel along I-10 (Interstate Highway 10) eastward.  Just before crossing into New Mexico there is a very interesting geological formation in Texas Canyon.  Here are some pictures.

We have been seeing lots of flowers blooming.

BTW, I have not posted since November because my trips during that time period were mainly to sensitive countries where people have asked me not to publicise their countries.

Bujumbura 2010 Near Hotel   Leave a comment


Although the large covered market is nearby we have tended to do our shopping at smaller stores just a block or two from the Hotel Amahoro.  Having traveled to more than 50 countries it is interesting to see what is for sale in their stores.    Sometimes I products and brands I recognise.  Sometimes I recognise products but not the brands.  Some items in the stores are just a mystery to me.  In the picture below the Fanta Orange soda on the bottom shelf is familiar.  The corn flakes on the shelf above are familiar but the brand, Bisco Misr, isn’t familiar.  Above that is a row of Nescafé coffee cans and above that are Bic pens.

What can you identify on the shelves behind Durai (DOOR consultant in training) in the picture below?  Please answer in a comment.

Bujumbura 2008 – Near Hotel   1 comment


Here are some pictures near the Amahoro Hotel in Bujumbura, Burundi.  Here is the view to the right of our Hotel.  (Directions will be given as if one is facing the Hotel.)

And here is the view to the left towards Lake Tanganyika.

Here are two views across from the Hotel.  Depending on my room I sometimes get this view from my small balcony.  We have stayed at this Hotel 3 trips.  The first view shows my favourite Burundi tree again.

In Mississippi I used to grow flowers but it has been years since I have had a flower garden.  I still love to look at them though.
