Doesn’t Have to Be Halloween to See Monsters

In keeping with the frightening aspect of Halloween, let’s check out cryptids that are said to have had a taste for human flesh. In the traditions of New Zealand’s native Maori people, the violent Maero fiends devoured their prey after killing them with long, sharp fingernails.

Step into the Past

Some sites are so puzzling that some people believe they were created by aliens. Such is the case with the Nazca Lines south of Lima, Peru, where there are over 800 straight lines, 300 geometric figures and 70 animal and plant designs that are only visible from the air.

Experiencing that Little Piece of Heaven

The parts of Ireland we saw were spotlessly clean, the air fresh and invigorating, the people friendly. For folks like me, who rarely travel farther than a few miles from home, a guided tour is a must for a first visit to a foreign country.

Spanish Jeopardy!

"Women could not go out alone. Could not work. Could not shop by themselves. Or date. But the tobacco company hired young women to roll cigars." Probably smoked less than the men, I figured.
