Armchair Travel Series #7

#cp. 5 sessions from 2-3:30.
Grab a seat and enjoy some adventures with LearningQUEST friends.
August 1: African Safaris - This presentation will include slides and short videos of four African safaris and Victoria Falls. Specifically the big 5 animals of Africa were seen as well as many other animals. The safari camps were visited just after the rainy season had ended in April 2015. We saw some of the remnants of animals that did not go on the great migration, which takes place in June thru October. We visited Amboseli National Park and Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya, one of which was at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. In Kenya the camps where guests stay contained high voltage electric fences surrounded the tent area to keep the animals out. The third safari was the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania, which is a 14 miles in diameter crater located 2,000 ft below the surrounding area (7,900 ft) with its own specie of the big 5 animals; we stayed at a camp on the outskirts of the Conservation Area. The Serengeti plains and great migrations pass through the surrounding area. The fourth safari was in Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park, where the tent areas were within the park with waterholes very close to the tents.
August 8: Pacific Northwest - Take a road trip and cruise in the Pacific Northwest. The trip includes Seattle, Alaska, Mt. Rainier NP, Hood River, Oregon (Columbia River Gorge), Crater Lake NP, Mt. St. Helen’s NM, the Oregon Coast, Olympic NP, and Victoria, BC (The Butchart Gardens).
August 15: "Historical and Contemporary Japan" - Bill Snoddy (and his wife, Jeanie) made multiple visits during the 20 years their son lived in Japan. The things Bill found most intriguing and beautiful will be presented. This "photographic tour" will briefly touch upon Japan's origin; language; religion; culture; gardens; art; and contemporary life. Travel tips will be offered for those interesting in visiting this remarkable country.
August 22: Cuba in Color and Black and White—Part 2 Julie Gary has been able to make three trips to Cuba, the final one in 2015, just a few weeks before the US Embassy reopened. Last August she shared her photographs of Havana’s art, architecture and changing culture with Learning Quest. Now, Part 2 will cover areas outside Havana—the small towns, villages and communities from the Western mountains to the Southern seacoast.
August 29: TOUR OF SYRIA - Explore historical and modern Syria with Jeanie Snoddy who traveled the country with a London archaeologist who had excavated there for 20 years. Visit archaeological sites dating to 3000 BC and cities such as Damascus, Aleppo, Hama, Deir Ezzor, and Palmyra, places unknown to most Americans a decade ago but now in the news daily. Learn about the history, art, religion, and recent devastation of this fascinating country, the crossroads of ancient civilizations.
