No doubt we would all like to experience the thrills of Eagle Hunting as only the Kazakhstan people know how. The art is now reserved for the very few who still practice using Eagles as their weapon on a hunt. A noble art indeed. There is hope the tradition will continue as there are fewer such bonds between man and independent free flyers like these beautiful Eagles.

Cartagena Colombia, humid, hot, historic, and worth a visit. Cartagena has a colorful past both exciting and sometimes dark. Here are the gates slaves brought from Africa past through before being sold and dispersed throughout the country. A sad moment in history indeed. On the other hand Cartagena has a rich history inclusive of the later freed slaves, with cultural drama, music, food, and a continued strong link to Africa by many of the decendants. Meanwhile Cartagena has become the flower of the coast for Colombians whom are frequent visitors. Cruiseships also stop.
