How to Prevent and Treat Altitude Sickness in Peru (From Cusco)
Most people who visit Machu Picchu (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d09AwPp5nag) go through the beautiful city of Cusco, which is over 11,000 feet above sea level. Altitude sickness can be an issue in either place so I made this video on how to prevent and treat altitude sickness, with the Cusco Cathedral in the background. I had put off my trip to Peru for years due to the fact that I suffered altitude sickness once before in the U.S. and didn't want to go through that again. However, even though it did hit me in Peru, it was not as nearly as bad as I anticipated, due to the precautions I took.
The Surreal and Very Real DMZ-Walking Into North Korea (With DMZ Facts/Figures)
My tour of the DMZ was perhaps the most surreal and fascinating part of my month long Asia trip. I took a USO tour through Koridoor Tours to Panmunjom, home of the JSA (Joint Security Area) in the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) at the border of South and North Korea. We were given a briefing by a U.S. military officer who gave us the history of the hostilities between the two countries and warned us not to gesture toward any North Korean soldiers should we see any. We could see the U.N Command soldiers, including some ROK (Republic of Korea) soldiers from South Korea. Some of them put half of their bodies behind the buildings to protect themselves in case they were fired upon from the North. We entered the MAC (Military Armistice Building) Conference Room where the two sides meet when they have talks. In the middle of the room is a conference table-half the table is in South Korea, half in North Korea. Once I passed that halfway point, I was standing in North Korea which I did for about 5 minutes-very surreal. When I got back to my hotel in Seoul, I heard on the radio that North Korea would attack South Korea in a few days and those threats continued for weeks.

House of the Virgin Mary, Mother of Jesus-Turkey
The House of the Virgin Mary is a Catholic and Muslim shrine located on Mt. Koressos in the vicinity of Ephesus, Turkey. The house was discovered in the 19th century by following the descriptions in the reported visions of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774–1824), a paralyzed German Roman Catholic nun and visionary, which were published as a book by Clemens Brentano after her death. One of Emmerich's accounts was a description of the house the Apostle John had built in Ephesus for Mary, the mother of Jesus, where she had lived to the end of her life. Archaeologists who have examined the building believe most of the building dates from the 6th or 7th century but its foundations are much older and may well date from the 1st century AD, the time of Mary. The Catholic Church has never come out in favor or against the authenticity of the house, but nevertheless maintains a steady flow of pilgrims since its discovery.
Cu Chi Tunnels Tour-Vietnam
During the Cu Chi Tunnels tour, we walked through a tunnel (which has been widened for tourists), saw some of the bunkers and booby traps, and walked by a shooting range where you can fire guns for a small price. Visiting the Cu Chi Tunnels helped me understand why the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong won the Vietnam War. They dug 70 mile long tunnels by hand and hid there during the day despite horrendous conditions. You have to have a certain amount of fortitude to do that.
Incense Making Village and Demonstration-Hue, Vietnam
Have you ever wondered how they make incense sticks? I visited an incense making village in Hue, Vietnam not far from the tombs of Emperor Duc. I got a demonstration on how they make incense sticks which includes a combination of sawdust, bamboo sticks, and either cinnamon or sandalwood powder. They can make 8,000 sticks in one day!
New York City Walking Tour by New York Tour1-Part 1: Midtown Manhattan
I took an awesome and very informative nine hour walking tour of New York City with New York Tour1 (www.newyorktour1.com) and our fantastic guide Bobby. It was 94 degrees with almost 100% humidity but that didn't stop us from having a great time in The Big Apple. This video is Part 1 and covers Midtown Manhattan including Times Square, the Diamond District, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Rockefeller Center, Top of the Rock (with views of Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, and Freedom Tower), Radio City Music Hall, Bryant Park, New York Public Library, Grand Central Station, and the underground subway. Please click on this link to see Part 2: Downtown Manhattan (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgNWIbO5TVA)
Reunification Palace Private Tour-Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam
The President of South Vietnam lived and worked here until the Fall of Saigon in 1975 when North Vietnamese tanks crashed through the front gates and the president surrendered. The inside seems pretty much untouched since that time. You can see the war planning rooms, receiving rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, movie theater, kitchen and the secret passageway that goes 2 kilometers underground to the airport. In 1962 two air force pilots bombed the palace instead of bombing the Viet Cong-one wing was destroyed but the president and his family survived the assassination attempt.
Vietnam War Remnants Museum-Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City)
The War Remnants Museum in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) features photographic exhibits and war memorabilia from the Vietnam War and the story is told from the point of view of the Communist North Vietnamese government. As I say in the video, it's best not to eat before viewing some of the photographs, which can be quite graphic. The museum originally opened in 1975 as the "Exhibition House for US and Puppet Crimes" located in the premises of the former United States Information Agency building. In 1990, the name changed to Exhibition House for Crimes of War and Aggression, dropping both "U.S." and "Puppet." In 1995, following the normalization of diplomatic relations with the United States and end of the US embargo from a year before, the references to "war crimes" and "aggression" were dropped from the museum's title as well; it became the "War Remnants Museum" It is one of the most popular museums in Vietnam, attracting approximately half a million visitors every year. According to the museum's own estimates, about two-thirds of these are foreigners. Source: Wikipedia
Changing of the Royal Guard, Gyeongbokgung Palace-Seoul, South Korea
Watch the pomp and circumstance of the Changing of the Royal Guard at Gyeongbokgung Palace, the largest of the Five Grand Palaces in Seoul, South Korea. In ancient times, the royal guards of the Joseon Dynasty performed the task of guarding the entrance to the palace where the king ruled the country. Since 1469 the ceremony has taken place and the present reenactment ceremony began in 1996.
New York City Walking Tour by New York Tour1-Part 2: Downtown Manhattan
This is Part 2 of an awesome and very informative nine hour walking tour of New York City with New York Tour1 (www.newyorktour1.com) and our fantastic guide Bobby. It was 94 degrees with almost 100% humidity but that didn't stop us from having a great time in The Big Apple. This video covers Downtown Manhattan including a Staten Island ferry ride past the Statue of Liberty, Fraunces Tavern (where George Washington had his retirement party), New York Stock Exchange, Wall Street, the Federal Building, J.P. Morgan Building, Trinity Church, Charging Bull, 9/11 Memorial, Woolworth Building, City Hall, Brooklyn Bridge, New York Courthouse and Supreme Court, Chinatown, Little Italy, SoHo. Here's the link to Part 1: Midtown Manhattan (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73NLxZwy5zI )
Scenic Train Rides Across Irish Countryside on Irish Rail
During my 2 week visit to Ireland, we took Irish Rail from Dublin to Cork, Cork to Killarney, and Killarney to Galway. Along the way, we saw the beautiful (green) Irish countryside. Irish Rail is a great way to get around Ireland and to see its rural areas. Very enjoyable!
Flying Over Amazon River Into Amazon Jungle and Iquitos, Peru (With Amazon Facts/Figures)
On the flight from Lima to Iquitos, you can see the winding Amazon River and the Amazon Jungle. We took a quick drive through Iquitos, the largest city in the world inaccessible by road. On the return trip, we saw the sunset from above the clouds.
Homestay With Sapa Hill Tribe Family-Vietnam
After going on an 8 hour trek through the beautiful hills and rice terraces of Sapa, Vietnam, I was fortunate to have had dinner and to have spent the night with a local hill tribe family. I believe that they were members of the Zay tribe and it gave me an authentic taste of how the locals live. It was great experience!
Tahuayo Lodge-#1 Lodge in Western Amazon Jungle, Peru
I spent 6 days in the Peruvian Amazon Jungle-3 days at Tahuayo Lodge and 3 days at its sister lodge, the Amazon Research Center. Tahuayo Lodge is rated #1 in Trip Advisor in the Iquitos area because of its personal service and dedication to the environment. Upon arrival, you are assigned a private guide (you can see our excellent guide Christian toward the end of the video). What was amazing to me is how the guides were able to spot wildlife 100 feet up in a tree or hidden below a leaf on the ground. You just tell them what you want to do, whether it be piranha fishing, canoeing, or searching for anaconda. This was a trip of a lifetime!
Fengdu (Ghost City), China (With Facts/Figures)
Fengdu, on the banks of the Yangtze River, is where the devil lives, according to Chinese legend. They say that spirits go to heaven, and evil goes to Fengdu. It used to be a burial area with scores of temples and shrines and a small ancient town. Due to the construction of the 3 Gorges Dam, the ghostly city is underwater. However, a hill and dozens of temples remain. At the site, people can see statues and frescoes about hell. It is said that two men named Yin and Wang arrived at the place in the time of the Han Dynasty (206 BC to 220 BC). They became Taoist recluses, and it is said that they became immortals. The combination of their surnames,"YinWang," means "King of Hell" or "King of Darkness." Somehow, during the Tang Dynasty(618-907 A.D.) people started to say that the King of hell lived there.
Village Life in the Amazon Jungle
On our Peruvian Amazon Jungle adventure, we visited two villages to see how the locals lived. In the first village, I spend some time with the children and saw a woolly monkey. In the second village, named El Chino Village, we bought some local handicrafts and visited the school where we saw the students in action.
Surrounded by North Korea on 3 Sides at DMZ/Dora Observatory
We were told by a U.S. military officer that we were surrounded by North Korea on three sides and were only a few steps from the South Korea/North Korea border. We can see the site where the 1976 Axe Murder Incident took place, the Bridge of No Return, a North Korean propaganda/peace village (Kijong-dong) containing one of the largest flagpoles in the world, and North Korean guard towers. Later in the trip, we visited Dora Observatory which gives you a great view of North Korea on a clear day.
Scenic PeruRail Train Ride to Machu Picchu (Aguas Calientes)
We took a very scenic PeruRail train ride to Machu Picchu from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes, which is the town closest to Machu Picchu. During the ride, we traveled over the rivers and through the foothills of the beautiful Andes mountains. On the way back, we saw a fashion show in our train car, along with a performance by a person dressed in a very strange costume.
Changing of the Royal Guard-Deoksugung Palace-Seoul, South Korea (With Historical Facts)
Deoksugung Palace is one of the Five Grand Palaces in Seoul, South Korea. It has held a reenactment of the guard-changing ceremony since 1996 after consulting historical research. During the Joseon Dynasty, the royal guards were responsible for guarding the king at his primary royal residence.
Prague Astronomical Clock-27 Seconds of Awesomeness!
The Prague astronomical clock dates from medieval times and is full of symbolic religious (and other) figures who come to life every hour on the hour. The 12 Apostles and a figure of Death are among some of these figures. According to legend, the city of Prague will suffer if the clock is neglected. This is one of the most intricate and interesting clocks in the world as you will see!
Catalina Island, California Snorkeling (With Music/Fish ID's)
Catalina Island, located about 25 miles west of Los Angeles, has some of the clearest waters and best snorkeling in California. In this video we see the bright orange Garibaldi (State Fish of California), Kelp Bass, Opaleye, and Triggerfish. To see my Catalina Island tour video, please click on the video at the very end of this video.
Hiking in the Amazon Jungle
During my six days in the Peruvian Amazon Jungle, we went hiking several times.This video captures what it's like on these hikes. I do show some of the wildlife (monkeys, poisonous frogs and ants) we encountered but I wanted to focus on the hiking experience overall. If you want to see my video of all of the amazing wildlife I saw in the Amazon Jungle, you can click on the box at the end of the video or on this Amazing Wildlife of the Amazon Jungle link: http://bit.ly/1wNwHi5
Inside Secret North Korean 3rd Tunnel-DMZ (With Historical Facts)
This is rare footage inside the 3rd Infiltration Tunnel (or 3rd Tunnel) at the DMZ at the border of South and North Korea. Since 1974, South Korea has discovered four secret tunnels built by North Korea. A North Korean defector tipped off the South in 1978 about the 3rd tunnel.The tunnels extend into South Korea and at the end of the 3rd tunnel, we were only 500 feet from the border of the two countries. The North claimed the tunnels were for coal mining but they were really a military invasion route. If completed, it would have allowed 10,000 soldiers to cross into South Korea within an hour. NOTE: The tunnel leading to the 3rd tunnel is very long and on the return trip, steep enough that I was totally out of breath and sweating. If you are elderly or not in the best physical shape, ask about the physical demands required before you go inside the tunnel.
Vegas Baby!-Everything You Wanted to Know About Las Vegas But Were Afraid to Ask!
After visiting Las Vegas over 80 times, I decided to make an action-packed, fact-filled video about Sin City. We visit and learn the history of every casino on The Strip, as well as all the casinos that are part of the downtown Fremont Street Experience. Learn how Las Vegas got its start, how it got its name, and how The Mob got involved. You'll see all the top free Vegas shows, learn where the free tram rides are, and find out where to see the top performers and clubs. Gambling tips are provided as well and of course, no Vegas video would be complete without music from Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, and Dean Martin! 0:00 Driving Down Las Vegas Strip; "Viva Las Vegas" Sung by Elvis Presley 2:18 History of Las Vegas: How Las Vegas Started, How It Got Its Name, How The Mob Got Involved 7:43 Las Vegas Visitor Facts/Top Vegas Shows/Top Vegas Clubs/Gambling Tips; "Luck Be A Lady" Sung By Frank Sinatra 9:37 New Vegas: Mirage/Excalibur/Luxor/MGM Grand/Treasure Island/Monte Carlo/Hershey's Chocolate World/M&M's World/Bellagio Chocolate Fountain/New York New York/Bellagio/Paris/Stratosphere/Mandalay Bay/Mix/Venetian-Palazzo/Planet Hollywood/Wynn-Encore/Cosmopolitan/City Center-Veer Towers/Crystals/Mandarin Oriental/Vdara/Harmon Tower/Aria/Cromwell/Linq/High Roller/SLS Las Vegas 31:47 Free Tram Rides: Mirage-Treasure Island/Mandalay Bay-Luxor-Excalibur/Aria Express; "I Love Vegas" Sung By Dean Martin 33:56 Free Shows: Bellagio Fountains/Mirage Volcano/Fall of Atlantis (Caesar's Palace)/Wynn Lake of Dreams/Circus Circus Acts/Fremont Street Experience/Rainstorm (Planet Hollywood) 42:24 Old Vegas: Flamingo/Tropicana/Casino Royale/Caesar's Palace/Circus Circus/Ballys/Harrahs/Pioneer Club/Golden Nugget/Binion's/Golden Gate/Fremont/Las Vegas Club/4 Queens/The Plaza/The D 52:02 Closing Remarks 52:26 Tribute To Las Vegas Casinos No Longer With Us; "Memories" Sung By Elvis Presley/Credits
Muslim (Islamic) Call to Prayer in Turkey
The mesmerizing Muslim (Islamic) call to prayer can be heard five times a day in Turkey. In this video, you can experience it in three different cities-Istanbul, Bursa, and Konya.
The Road to Hana-Maui (With Facts/Figures + Music)
The Road to Hana is unique to Maui and is over 50 miles long, has over 600 curves, and over 50 bridges. You can see some spectacular scenery not only on the highway but when you stop and take short walks to the more popular attractions like Ke'anae Valley, Pua'aKa'a Falls, Koki Beach, Alau Island, Wailua Falls, Honokalani Black Sand Beach and Lava Tube at Wainapanapa State Park, and Seven Sacred Pools at Ohe'o Gulch.
Hanoi Presidential Palace and Ho Chi Minh Stilt House (With Narration + Music)
When Ho Chi Minh was President of North Vietnam, he refused to live at the luxurious Presidential Palace because he wanted to empathize with the poor people of his country and didn't want to send the wrong message. He lived instead in the former palace electrician's quarters (House 54) and in a Stilt House, both of which you can see in this video.
Walking Around Cambodian Floating Fishing Village-Kompong Khleang
I went off the beaten path and walked around a fascinating floating fishing village in Kompong Khleang, Cambodia, which included a brief tour of a Buddhist monastery. The village is about 25 miles (40 km) from Siem Reap. The houses are perched on stilts about 33 feet (10 meters) above the ground to prevent flooding during the rainy season and the homes have no electricity. This was a rare glimpse into a way of life that is totally different from what most of us are used to. It was like going back in time.
Coconut Candy Factory Tour-Mekong Delta, Vietnam
We stopped at a coconut candy factory on Phoenix Island in the Mekong Delta to see how they make the candy. Hmmm Hmmm good!
NASCAR Crashes-From The Grandstands
I've seen NASCAR races at seven different tracks and I captured some of the crashes on video: 0:13 Sam Hornish, Jr. turns Casey Mears' car upside down and then Hornish's car is on fire at Auto Club Speedway 1:19 Ken Schrader gets slammed at Sonoma Raceway 2:14 Jeff Gordon spins Matt Kenseth with 4 laps left at Chicagoland and wins the race 3:53 Multiple car wreck at Dover 5:40 Parachutist accidentally crashes into the stands at Auto Club Speedway
The Citadel and Forbidden Purple City-Hue, Vietnam (With Historical Facts)
I took a fascinating tour of an area rich in Vietnamese and American history. My guide Thanh had personally witnessed hand-to-hand combat here as a 12 year-old during the Vietnam War. Hue was the imperial capital of Vietnam from 1802-1945 and the Forbidden Purple City contained the residence of the Emperor and Royal Family. Like the Forbidden City in Beijing, only royalty and invited guests could come here. The Citadel is a walled fortress and palace that was built in the early 1800's. During the 1968 Tet Offensive and the Battle of Hue, thousands of Vietnamese and hundreds of Americans were killed during fighting here.
Dong Ba Market-My Favorite Food Market in Vietnam
I received a private tour (with my excellent guide Thanh) of Dong Ba Market in Hue, Vietnam, which was my favorite Vietnamese food market. The local food market is the heart and soul of every Vietnamese city and town and Dong Ba Market is no exception. It's the largest food market in Central Vietnam and like most Vietnamese food markets, about 90% of the vendors are women. Thousands of people come here every day and this market is full of hustle and bustle-anything you need is here!
Ataturk Tomb (Anitkabir)-Founder of Modern Turkey (With Facts/Figures)
This is the mausoleum containing the tomb of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk (1881-1938), the leader of the Turkish War of Independence and the founder and first President of the Republic of Turkey. It's located in Ankara, the capital of Turkey. It was designed by two architect professors whose proposal beat out 48 international entries in a competition held by the Turkish government in 1941 for a "monumental tomb" for Ataturk. The tomb was built from 1944-1953.
Hong Kong Nightlife-SoHo and Lan Kwai Fong
Two of the best places for Hong Kong nightlife are SoHo (South of Hollywood Road) and Lan Kwai Fong, known for drinking, clubbing, and dancing. This was my first night in Hong Kong so the best way to overcome jet lag was to just go out and experience the nightlife.
Bosphorus Cruise in Istanbul, Turkey
No visit to Istanbul is complete without taking a Bosphorus cruise because it features so many interesting sights. The 20 mile long strait, which joins the Sea of Marmara to the south with the Black Sea to the north, is a key waterway in Istanbul. We saw a lot of important landmarks including palaces, mosques, and schools.
Emperor Tu Duc Tombs-Hue, Vietnam (With Historical Facts)
Emperor Tu Duc was the fourth emperor of Vietnam's Nguyen Dynasty. He reigned from 1847-1883. On the grounds you can find his tomb and summer house. The Emperor was known for shutting off Vietnam from the rest of the world and for refusing to modernize the country. According to legend, he cursed the French with his dying breath in 1883.
Gyeongbokgung Palace-Grandest of the Five Grand Palaces-Seoul, South Korea (With Historical Facts)
Gyeongbokgung Palace is the main and most visited of Seoul's "Five Grand Palaces." The palace was home to the kings and queens of the Joseon Dynasty. It was first constructed in 1395, burned then abandoned for three centuries, then reconstructed in 1867. In the early 20th Century, much of the palace was destroyed by the Empire of Japan and since then, parts of the palace has been restored.
Deoksugung Palace Self-Guided Tour-Seoul, South Korea (With Historical Facts)
Deoksugung Palace is one of the "Five Grand Palaces" in Seoul, South Korea and is located not far from Seoul City Hall. It was inhabited by several Korean royalties until the turn of the 20th Century. It was the main palace of the Great Han Empire (1897-1910). The palace was heavily destroyed by the Japanese during the colonial period of Korea and only about one-third of the structures that were standing before the occupation remain today.
Welcome...to Central Park! (with Central Park Facts/Figures)
We not only get a bird's eye view of Central Park from the top of 30 Rockefeller Center, but we also take a walk in Central Park and it's surrounding area. We see Holy Trinity Church (as seen in Ghostbusters), The Lake, The Dakota (where John Lennon lived and died), Strawberry Fields, American Museum of Natural History, The Great Lawn, Belvedere Castle, Cleopatra's Needle, Greywacke Arch, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Conservatory Water.
Peanut Island, Florida Snorkeling-(With Manatee/Fish ID's/Music)
This is not your typical snorkeling footage because in this video, all of the fish (and manatee) are identified. I dodged a few jellyfish as well. I spent a lot of time consulting fish charts and also had expert help from Richard at Palm Beach Snorkeling, Liz at REEF, Tammi at Divers Direct, and Sam at The Scuba Club, so we were able to correctly identify almost all of the fish. Thank you all for your help! The underwater snorkeling footage was shot with a GoPro Hero 3+ at Peanut Island, near Singer Island, Florida. In order, I saw Spotlight Parrotfish, Snook, Manatee, Gray Angelfish, French Angelfish, Spottail Pinfish, Sergeant Major, Ocean Surgeonfish, Slippery Dick, Baby Barracuda, Flat Needlefish, Porkfish, Juvenile French Angelfish, Cocoa Damselfish, Princess Parrotfish, Grunts, Yellowtail Parrotfish, Longfin Dameselfish, Bluehead Wrasse, Puddingwife Wrasse.
Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum-Hanoi, Vietnam (With Tour Guide History Lesson)
It was eerie to see the dead body of Ho Chi Minh lying in state after 45 years. There wasn't much light inside and there were guards everywhere so any chance of sneaking some video of the body went out the window. My guide eloquently explains the life and death of Ho Chi Minh, former Prime Minister and President of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (North Vietnam).
Nakalele Blowhole, Maui-Water Shoots 100 Feet in Air
Nakalele Point is the most northern point on Maui and home to the Nakalele Blowhole which spouts water over 100 feet in the air. Nakalele Blowhole is the result of the ocean wearing away the shore below the lava shelf. With each wave, water is forced through a hole in the lava shelf resulting in the "eruption" of water similar to a geyser. The point has seen several deaths, mostly tourists or people unfamiliar with the area. Those who have died have been too close to the blowhole and get sucked in by retreating water.
Snorkeling with Leopard Sharks and Sea Lions-La Jolla, California (With Narration/Music)
In what I can only describe as a very cool experience, I spent a weekend in La Jolla, California (just northwest of downtown San Diego) snorkeling with sea lions (in La Jolla Cove) and leopard sharks (in La Jolla Shores). Every summer, hundreds of pregnant leopard sharks come to gestate in the shallow warm waters of La Jolla. It was amazing to get up close and personal with the sea lions and leopard sharks in their natural habitat!
Crawling Through Cu Chi Tunnels-3 Minutes of Hell! (With Cu Chi Facts/Figures)
You will see me (actually, you'll hear me) panic as I crawl through a narrow tunnel on my knees with no light whatsoever and to top it off, I came face-to-face with three bats after I made a wrong turn. It was extremely claustrophobic in there and I was extremely uncomfortable being down there. I was only there for 3-4 minutes so imagine what it was like for the Viet Cong to live in those conditions, facing heat, malaria, bats, rats, and poisonous spiders. Being down there helped explain to me why the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese won the Vietnam War. You have to have a certain will and fortitude to live in those conditions.
2006 Daytona 500 Race Highlights-From The Grandstands
See the 2006 Daytona 500 from a fan's perspective-high up in the stands. It was a cold, overcast day as #48 Jimmy Johnson wins his first Daytona 500!
Molly Malone Statue, Song, and Legend-Dublin, Ireland
"Molly Malone" is a popular 19th century song and is also known as "Cockles and Mussels" or "In Dublin's Fair City." It's set in Dublin and has become the unofficial anthem of Dublin. The song (there are several versions but I used the popular one by The Dubliners) tells the fictional tale of Molly Malone-a Dublin fishmonger by day and part-time prostitute at night, who died at a young age of a fever. In the late 20th century a legend grew up that there was a historical Molly, who lived in the 17th century. The Molly Malone statue was unveiled during the 1988 Dublin Millennium celebrations, declaring 13 June as Molly Malone Day. It's supposed to be good luck to rub her bosoms. However, the statue has been groped often enough that the bronze hue has worn off the bosoms.
Baphuon Temple-Angkor Thom, Siem Reap, Cambodia (With Historical Facts)
The Baphuon is a temple located at Angkor Thom in Siem Reap Cambodia. It was built in the mid 11th Century and was the state temple of Udayadityavarman II. The temple was originally dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva but was converted to a Buddhist temple in the late 15th Century. By the 20th Century, much of the temple had collapsed and reconstruction efforts started around 1950 and were finally completed in 2011. The final stage, over the last 16 years, had seen a 300 person team tackle what had become the largest three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle in the world.
Turkish Ceramic/Pottery Factory Tour: Cappadocia, Turkey
We took this very interesting behind-the-scenes tour of the Venessa Seramik Art Gallery in Cappadocia, Turkey. First, we saw a master create an intricate piece of wine vessel pottery. We then saw how other craftsmen and craftswomen added the final touches to other ceramic pieces. I ended up happily buying a few pieces of ceramic for my collection.
Whirling Dervishes of Cappadocia, Turkey (With Facts/Figures)
I certainly had heard of The Whirling Dervishes but what I didn't realize is that their performance is actually a religious ceremony. They are putting themselves in a trance as they spin around counter-clockwise so that they can be closer to God. What's amazing is that they will spin around for several minutes at a time and not get dizzy. Filming of the actual religious ceremony is strictly prohibited so what you are seeing is a short re-creation that they perform right after the actual ceremony.
Hauntingly Beautiful Bayon Temple, Angkor Thom (With Historical Facts)
While many people go to Siem Reap to visit Angkor Wat, no trip would be complete without a visit to The Bayon, which is part of the Angkor Thom temple complex. The complex is almost 1,000 years old and is known for its many gigantic smiling stone faces and for its bas reliefs. It was voted the #1 attraction in Siem Reap on TripAdvisor. My visit here is one I will always remember. 0:01 South Gate 0:56 Front Area of Temple 2:34 Dancing Girl Bas-Relief 2:46 2nd Level Featuring Giant Smiling Stone Faces 5:42 Unforgettable View of Temple From Other Side
