Carpe Diem Haiku — Volga River

Volga River

As Paulo and Hilal are departing from Moscow it’s late in the evening so it could be very dark and I think they didn’t saw the Volga that night, maybe they did saw it reflecting the lights of the TSR or the moon … we don’t know, but what we know is that they crossed for sure the Volga.
Our journey continues and we will go deeper into the Soviet Union the next days and weeks, but it is for sure an adventure …

Michelle’s Pet Challenge Week 2

My name is Flash. Mr. Human said he named me that because when I was growing up I ran so fast through the house that it was light a flash of lightning.

This is my glamour shot.

Far From Home

There was a  recent post on WordPress asking readers what is the  furthest from home you have ever been. I guess my answer would be around 7,648 miles. That would be at the equator in Nanyuki, Kenya.

On one side of the equator the water drains clockwise and on the other  side it drains counter-clockwise. Across  the street was a little trading posts. I never realized that my wife could  be a very good negotiator. She traded the inexpensive wrist watch she was wearing for some local crafts. I think she got a the  best of  the deal.

What is the  furthest you have been away from your home?
