Places worth visiting - UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

UNESCO World Heritage Sites are places that have been identified, by a consortium of countries, as worthy of preservation from either a cultural or nature perspective. In my opinion, these are places worth seeing. So, no matter what country I travel to, I always check the list to see what UNESCO sites have been inscribed for that particular country and try to plan visits to them. In Peru, it was Cusco, the magnificent Machu Picchu, and the Nazca Lines. In Egypt, it was the Great Pyramids at Giza, unforgettable Abu Simbel, lovely Philae, the majestic Karnak, and St. Catherine's. In Jordan, it was the incomparable Petra.

So where is she off to?

After months of reading and researching and mulling over what I want to see, I've finally settled on an itinerary.

Déjà View.

THEY'RE HERE!! My Rudy Projects finally arrived! So what are Rudy Projects? In my opinion, they are some of the coolest high performance sunglasses around and I'm the lucky owner of a pair Ekynox SX with two pairs of interchangeable lenses - pair for walking around the streets of India and the other for trekking in the high altitudes in Tibet.

....but, why would I care to blog about my Rudy Projects? Because there's a good story behind them and I don't want to forget it.
