World Travels


Here are many images chosen from my month long trip to China (in late 2001).  I flew to Beijing (Great Wall, Forbidden City), took trains to Xian (terracotta warriors) and Chengdu (pandas), bus trips to western parks (Yellow Dragon, Nine Stockade Gully), bus to Chongqing, boat down the Yangtze River (Three Gorges) to Yichang, train to Guilin area (Dragon's Breath rice terraces, Li River karst landscapes), bus to Guangzhou, and train to Hong Kong.

And there are images from my latest international trip, where I spent a month in Thailand and a week in Cambodia.  I flew to Bangkok, took trains to Ayuthaya, Lopburi, and Phitsanulok, rode buses to Sukhothai and Chiang Mai.  Back in Bangkok, I took another train to Aranya Prathet.  There I crossed into Cambodia, rode trucks to Siem Reap to see Angkor Wat, then took buses to Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville, and back across the Thai border to Trat.  From there I took a boat to Ko Chang, bus and boat to Ko Samet, then back to Bangkok via Pattaya.  (I was in Thailand during late December of 2004, when the big tsunami hit the southwest coast, but fortunately I was in the north at the time.)
