Yet another trip to Australia

I am back in Australia and I have to admit, although the flight is long and tiring, there is no place on Earth that I enjoy more than Sydney, Australia. The people are nice, the city is clean, the weather is usually nice, it is safe...and strangely I feel at home here. I guess after being here 12 times it should seem a little like home. :)

Quick trip to Mexico City

Funny...I have been around the world so many times but this was my first trip to Mexico City. It was interesting because there was such disparity between the rich and poor. We would drive through neighborhoods with large, beautiful homes and then minutes later we would drive by areas covered with very modest "houses" which were more like shacks. The air quality is as bad as they say it is and I had a hard time getting used to that. I was thankful to only be there for 2 days. I did get a couple of nice shots during this visit, but like most of South America, I had to be careful shooting at night. I had to hire someone to be with me for safety reasons.
