The Good, The Bad and The Thank you’s – India

Taj Mahal

It’s time for the final article on India (actually, well-past time thanks to a crashed computer which will cause my ever dwindling funds to dwindle further). This is where I tell you what was good and what was was not-so-good, as well as thanking those who helped me along the way. I also provide all […]

A Day at the Museum

Mask

Please note: This article should come before Training Wheels chronologically. With lack of Wifi and, sometimes, electricity, they’ve been written but are not necessarily posted as timely as I would like.

It’s a Jungle Book Out There
