It was a long flight that Roberto wished would never end. Seated beside him was the most beautiful girl that he could only fantasize about.
Roberto was an immigrant eager to build a new life in New York. Tara was an aspiring model wearing a mini skirt that revealed more than it could hide.
They were an odd couple to look at, but somehow they clicked and seemed to enjoy each other’s company.
As the plane landed, Tara gave her phone number and told him to get together sometime.
When Roberto called a week later, he got a wrong number.
Location: Dupnitsa, Bulgaria
It was one of those dog days of summer. Arriving at our destination, it was only fitting that I saw a dog napping on the rooftop. It seemed to have no care in the world and oblivious to what was happening around.
On that day, we spent a relaxing afternoon with the Roma people in the village of Dupnitsa. Unlike their nomadic counterparts who roam around Europe, they have decided to stay put. Roma is the politically correct term for the gypsies. Among ethnic groups in Europe, the Roma people are the poorest and most discriminated against.
Our hosts welcomed us with the customary bread and salt and served us traditional food. We deeply appreciated their hospitality.
As we left the village, I noticed that the dog was no longer on the rooftop. I looked around hoping to see it one last time, but the dog was nowhere to be found. Too bad. I could have share it a cookie.

He was the bravest of warriors. She was the Chief’s daughter.
On this day, they became husband and wife.
Amid singing and dancing, the newlyweds were led to their wedding tent by well-wishers holding lighted candles.
It was the moment Egecatl had been waiting for. He had dreamed and fantasized about it for years.
Now, he wondered if he’d rise to the occasion.
Teyacapan took off her robe and lay down beside him, filled with anticipation of what was to come.
Egecatl touched and kissed her to make sure she was real.
It was then he realized, he had misfired.
