Gra Nomad Wanderings

 Wow! The Titanic "museum" in Branson MI was fantastic. Very well done and we learnt heaps about this ship and its untimely end.
 There was great entertainment, including these 2 clowns - Buckets and Boards. They were skilled and clever and very funny. This was in Branson MISSOURI where we spent a week with good mates Ron & Chari from Wichita KANSAS.
 When we reached Santa Fe NEW MEXICO it was time to get some art! And art we did. Just unreal. I have heaps of pix.
 This particular fella was made from all sorts of bits of odds and ends. Very clever.
 Loved the architecture.... just everywhere.
 Hmmm... now where was this church? Think this was where they found a cross which appears to have significant "powers". Haven't got my notes with me.
 We did enjoy Santa Fe. Thanks Anne (our Servas host) who looked after us really well.
 Great to get a look at the Rio Grande River. That's one deep canyon.
 This sculpture was nearly lifesize.
 We did a fair bit of walking in Austin (stayed with Servas host Sharon) and visited the Capitol Building.
There's a good story about this lady (the one on the right) who saved the place from being invaded. You can't beat a strong woman eh guys? Currently in New Orleans LA (Louisiana). Hence NOLA. Get it?
When we reach Los Angeles / Orange County (Monday 31 March) we'll give you an update on our fab time in New Orleans.

We just spent a week aboard CARNIVAL SUNSHINE. The ship left New Orleans and called at Montego Bay (Jamaica) , Cayman Island and Cozumel ( Mexico).

This is the first time I've used the SAMSUNG TABLET to post in Granomad- apols for some difficulties.
There were 3400 other travellers on board and about 1100 crew (includes entertainers ).
Beaut singing and dancing spectacular shows, magician, hypnotist, Casino (didn't interest us), pools, spas, dining rooms etc. We also met bunches of folk (mostly from USA)
Now if only I could get some photos onto this post. [Thanks Ron from Wichita for letting me use your laptop.]
