Tucson, Arizona 2018 Select Photos

The first trip, I had gone with the intent of visiting the Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum and eating at El Charro.

To Rio from Phoenix with London memories

It’s hard to believe it has already been four years since I was in London for the 2012 Olympic Games. On this day of the opening ceremony for Rio 2016 Games, I sit here wishing I could be on Ipanema or Copacabana beach gazing at Sugarloaf mountain with a caipirinha in my hand with another on the way.
