It is such a shame that you did not aim higher.
Why aim higher than what I wanted to do? All seven continents, flew to Mt Everest, dipped my feet in the Dead Sea, visited both northernmost and southernmost cities of the world, cruised between Bergen and the Russian coast of Norway, and visited most of the major sites in this world, including cruising both major oceans and the rivers (includes Thames, Yangtze, Amazon, Nile, Volga, Mississippi, Sacramento, and the Columbia & Snake Rivers. 132 countries by last count, Russia, China, Cuba, Antarctica, Taj Mahal, Angkor Wat, Great Wall of China, Forbidden City, Xian (terra-cotta soldiers) the Great Pyramids of Giza, the five Stans (Silk Road route), Troy, Vatican, Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Mayan ruins, Frida Kahlo and Carlos Slim's museums in Mexico City (Francisco Baez is a friend), Paris (Francis is a friend), Singapore (Bill and Yvonne Lim are friends), Moscow (Sergei and Oleg are friends), Cuba (Caesar and Hiroshi Robaina are friends), Israel & Jordan (Bethlehem, birthplace of Jesus), and all across the USA including Hawaii and Alaska. Among family and friends, I'm the most traveled. Travel has enriched my life in so many ways. Meeting many interesting people, and making new friends have been the reward. Have friends in the San Francisco Bay Area, Southern CA, Austin and Houston, Chicago, and NYC. I've done all the travel I wished to do. BTW, Caesar works at the Nacional Hotel in Havana, and Hiroshi Robaina owns one of the largest tobacco plantations in Cuba. His grandfather, Alejandro, is an icon of Cuban cigars. I asked Hiroshi why he has a Japanese name, and he told me because he was born in the month his parents visited Japan. The Spanish spelling of Hirochi.
