A couple of weeks I was asked by someone about buying cameras.  They wanted to get a new camera but had no idea what to choose.  I told the person I had written a post on how to work out what camera is right for you,  What you want in a Camera , and they said it was very helpful.  I wrote that post over a year ago and I know that people could contribute more to this discussion.  This is not a discussion on which is better, Nikon or Canon, the reality is they’re both good, end of that.  I don’t mind you talking about why you choose one over the other, I will do that too, but in the end it probably doesn’t matter what you choose.  I will go first.

These were photographed on the Mahaulepu Trail, at various beaches or in the hills behind Kapaa.  I did eat every bite of the delicious Ronald Burger at Joe’s on the Green in Poipu.

On my latest trip I opted to explore a more historical side of this country, and flew to Santo Domingo, the site of Christopher Columbus’s first successful city in the New World.

The main historical tourist attractions in Santo Domingo are located in the Zona Colonial, or the Colonial District. In this ten block radius travelers can walk down Calle Las Damas, the first paved road in the New World, explore Christopher Columbus’s stately home, taste the home grown chocolate at the Chocolate Museum, and take a horse-drawn carriage ride down the cobble-stoned streets. The citizens of this city are very proud of their country’s heritage, many offering a history lesson to any interested parties.
