Fall is the busy season for me and travel plans for the rest of the year are shaping up with several hopelessly photogenic destinations on the horizon. I am off to Tucson, Arizona Labor Day weekend, a part of the country I’ve haven’t been to yet. Looking forward to photographing all the desert has to offer and driving a car. It’s been almost a year since I’ve sat behind a wheel which is typical of Manhattan dwellers, most of whom don’t own cars. Which reminds me, I need to book a rental.
Mexico is on the docket for October. I have a friend in Mexico City who knows all the great places to travel and the best way to get there. One could spend a lifetime exploring Mexico. My visit will coincide with the Day of The Dead festival, which I will write more about in a later post. I experienced it two years ago in Oaxaca and it’s something not to be missed if you have the opportunity. This trip to Mexico will include Real de Catorce, a ghost town in the desert, and the charming colonial town of San Miguel de Allende.
November looks like it will bring a trip to Kenya’s Masai Mara. I was last there about six years ago. I’m looking forward to spending some quality time with my husband, a wildlife buff who loves all creatures big and small. It will also be a great time to be completely removed from all and take it easy.
And of course I’ll see what else I can squeeze in before the end of the year. Perhaps a few days in Los Angeles of which I need a dose. One of my homes away from home (the others are India and the U.K.), it’s been more than a year since my last visit and I’m suffering from withdrawal.
