Tampa, Florida

I love to travel. I have been to all the continents. Antarctica and Tibet were fascinating. I am an amateur photographer and I love to photograph people, the open markets, and what others consider as mundane. My husband and I both love to eat out everywhere. We ate at the Fiambre Restaurant in Quito, Ecuador where Andrew Zimmern ("Bizarre Food" fame) ate a roasted "cuy" (guinea pig). "Cuy" was not bad. . It was an experience I will never forget! In Ecuador, we tried roasted beetles with roasted corn. In Beijing, I ate fried scorpions. I will try any food, at least, once. I love all kinds of fruit, too! Most of the time, my husband and I travel independently. We meet a lot of the locals that way. I told my husband that I want to see 100 countries before I die. I travel as much as I can when I can. When we travel, we bring some maps, postcards,small souvenirs and school supplies to share with the locals.
