So between you and I: Looks like the Fall Season maybe an interesting time of the year in this part of the world. Should be a good time to travel, need to go see Israel and Iran, before a war there blows everything up. We are glad that we recently traveled to the Georgia area just before all the issues started in Abkhazia and got to see that beautiful country: before it gets blown up!

I wonder if the world could wait until we get to travel to all the places we want to before they blow each other up?
