I did write yesterday, but it was just a brief paragraph as CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) beat my behind. I’m a tad better today and this topic wasn’t difficult to write about.
List five places you want to visit
1. Smithsonian National Museum Of African American History and Culture located in Washington D.C
I’ve heard and read so much about this museum. It took a long time to get the project completed and I’ve heard from people who have made the trip that it is a must see and it’s emotional. I enjoy learning history in a museum setting. African American history is American history and it should be celebrated.
Since I was a kid and watched the 3-part episode of The Brady Bunch, this was on my travel list. The birthplace of our 44th President has sun, sand and surf.How could you go wrong?
2. The Hall of the Great Vow for Kosen-rufu located in Shinanomachi, Tokyo.
Similar in scope to visiting the Vatican for Catholics or Mecca for Muslims, this is the destination for SGI Nichiren Buddhists. It’s the headquarters where we can visit and renew our commitment to promoting world peace and individual happiness.
3. The Champs-Elysées and all the sites near it. Located in Paris France
It is Paris! It’s considered one of the greatest avenues in the world. There are museums, shops and other touristy things to do.
4. Grenada – The Spice Island
The maternal side of my family history is in Grenada. I would love to visit the Isle of Spice and have an inside glimpse of my personal history. It’s warm too, which I realize is better for my health.
5. Turks and Caicos
I like the beach. Every photo that I’ve seen of Turks and Caicos makes me want to see it up close.
I’m adding this one because it’s been forbidden since the 1960’s. For the culture and for the experience, I think I would enjoy myself as I learn and observe a place only about 1400 miles from Florida.
I don’t have a clue when I going to any/all of these places, but when the time comes, I have a list to choose from.
