I have always been fascinated by New Orleans and had to travel there for Halloween, to experience the wonderful revelry and explore the dark crevices of the French Quarter and beyond. The people, food, art and stories were inspiring as there is so much soul and energy out there–definitely going back!

The “Hanging Church” (also known as Saint Virgin Mary’s Coptic Orthodox Church) in old Cairo, Egypt, has a fantastic mesh of Middle-Eastern geometric design and Basilican architecture. While approaching the entrance, there were a dozen heavily armed guards and a tank, a sad reminder of the perilous times we live in. The interior of the church was darker than I anticipated, but the lovely candles throughout created a mesmerizing ambiance.

The Temple of Horus is a classically designed Egyptian structure, located in Edfu, Egypt. Quite fittingly, I was able to visit the location in the early morning hours, with the god of sun blessing the walls with beautiful yellow light. The temple walls are carved with the scenes of the great mythical battle between Horus and his uncle, Seth. It’s also home to winged creatures, singing Horus’ praises for all who pass through.
