John is also a friend. We met in London, England many years ago and we sort of kept in touch. Thanks to John, you and I can visit many different cities and one US state in not more than five minutes.

Dubai a City and Emirate
in the United Arab Emirates

About the photo above John wrote: "A stack of bicycles on a waterfront where older wooden ships called dhows take on cargo destined for small ports from Iran to the Horn of Africa.  Bicycles that are probably secondhand and headed for Kenya or somewhere similar."

Kamakura
a Seaside Japanese City South of Tokyo

Paris Capital of France
and a Major European City 

About thIs photo John wrote: "The bridge over the River Seine in Paris is Pont des Arts and the Louvre is in the background. 

I took that photo because it had become a very popular place for couples to attach a padlock to the railings and throw the key into the river to show their love.  Unfortunately, thousands of padlocks made the bridge very heavy and there was worry about it collapsing. 

The city would periodically cut off the padlocks but they always grew back. So sometime later, the city took down the railings and put up new ones that prevented anything from being attached to them."

I don't know about you but, going through the photos John sent me gave me someting like a "moment of escape from toil and trouble". Photos that made me dream about evasion from ... just about everything, but just for a little while. 

In other words I need a vacation. That said, I hope you enjoy your "trip" to the eight cities, six countries and one U.S. state Dr John E. Peterson visited in the past few years and was nice enough to share with us.
