“Until I visited them, I never realized that the ancient Pyramids of Giza overlooked the booming city of Cairo. Separated only by the Nile, the city of the living and the city of the dead reside together in harmony. One grows and changes daily. The other is a monument to an ancient culture that has endured for thousands of years.”

“Inishmore, the largest of the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland, is a cultural haven. Tourists cannot bring cars to the island, so they must revert to simpler modes of transportation. On this island, you can get up close and personal with the people, animals, and historical relics that dot the rocky and sometimes foggy landscape.”

“I was visiting the Bashahi Mosque, located in the heart of Lahore, Pakistan, when I saw a fabulous shot of Minar-e-Pakistan from a distance. In Urdu, minar means “tower.” The tower in the photo was completed in 1968 to commemorate the Pakistan Resolution of 1940, which demanded Pakistani independence.”
