I have the greatest privilege of being associated with Native cultures of many continents.. thus satisfying my curiosity and desire to travel and the chance to help them with my medical expertise. these notes are from those travels. I am a professor at the University of Havana
Friends and Food feature predominantly in

The best eating these days for me is where
my close friends are, in Bogor, in Indonesia.
Some of the flights themselves were
memorable, the three most memorable ones being: the Japan Airlines flight from
Tokyo to Chicago, the Jakarta to Doha and Doha to Brussels flight on Qatar,
with the Cathay Pacific flight from New York to Hong Kong added on. I also

Simple interactions with old and new
friends are the highlights of these trips: Siem Reap, Kuala Lumpur and Bogor.
The last stay in Siem Reap was memorable for its simplicity.

the year, as Israel and India have come calling.
Definitely expect friendships and food, and
on this visit, plan to be a tourist for a couple of days in Kuala Lumpur! It
has been a long time since I had visited the Batu Caves as well as the

make these journeys pleasant and memorable!
It takes so little to make other people happy in their work and feel appreciated!
