Travel after Poland

Taking any major trips during the year, are probably out of the question as I will be traveling to Krakow, Poland regularly this year. That does not mean that I can’t plan for future trips. I have family from Peru and have visited them numerous times in my life, but have never been a tourist there. I have mostly only visited family or gone to the beaches. My next trip to Peru will be different. After my trip to Peru, I would like to go to Costa Rica again as I enjoyed my time there when I studied there for a summer.

My next trip to Peru, I plan on being a tourist for about 2-3 weeks and see all the thing I missed seeing on my past trips. Below is a list of things I would like to see in whenever I am able to go to Peru again.

Larco Herrera Museum
Gold Museum
Ica, Nazca Lines, and Ballestas Islands
Uros Island and Lake Titicaca
Machu Picchu
Manu Wildlife center
Huaca El Dragon and Chan Chan Museum

I know I probably missed a lot, but this should cover me for a bit. I might not even be able to do all of this in a 2-3 week period, as Peru is split up into 6 regions ( that is what the guide books shows).

If you know of something else that would be interesting to see, let me know.

"A Day without a Mexican"

I saw “A Day without a Mexican” a while back, and it seems to fit in perfectly with what is going on today with immigration and the national boycott. Of course, in the movie it was not a boycott but a fog that caused all the Mexicans to disappear. California, Texas, Arizona, possibly Miami, FL and other cities/states will be affected more that other places in the United States due to the large Hispanic populations.

I think it is very unrealistic to deport 11 million people. As I mentioned in a previous post, those immigrants which are not citizens need to be given a chance to get a working visa or a chance to become citizens. Those that want to have that chance need to do so by a certain time. Those that fail to do so, risk the chance of being deported. Once this is all done, the United States does need to be stricter on its border policies to keep this from repeating in the future.

The main question I have is, how many of those 11 million people are paying taxes? I am all for people from other nations being in the United States, as long as they do it the legal way. I even have relatives that have been offered a Visa to live in the USA and I look forward to seeing them here.

President Bush, Clinton, Bush, Reagan, and Carter

Nesting Dolls or matryoshka from what I have seen online they are mainly from Russia, but many souvenir spots in Krakow, Poland have them. I was able to find one with President Bush, Clinton, Bush, Reagan, and Carter in it. I am guessing Carter was the last one since he was the peanut man and his wooden piece almost looks like a peanut.

Someone at work mentioned it to me and I figured I had to get one before I left Krakow, Poland.
