"Italy-France Road Trip " ChuckG's Profile

Welcome !

In my mind

I'm back on Lost Island and will "chill" for a while, became a father so I have less time for travel.

Lost Island



I visited this memorial during my trip to Russia in August06 and it reminded me how hate and fanatics can cause the worst atrocities.

"THE SIEGE OF LENINGRAD: (Sept. 8, 1941–Jan. 27, 1944) Prolonged siege of the city of Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) by German forces in World War II. German forces invaded the Soviet Union in June 1941 and approached Leningrad from the west and south while Germany's Finnish allies came from the north. By November 1941 the city was almost completely encircled and its supply lines to the Soviet interior cut off. In 1942 alone, in excess of 650,000 of Leningrad's citizens died from starvation, disease, and shelling from distant German artillery. Sparse food and fuel supplies reached the city by barge in the summer and by sled in winter across Lake Ladoga. The supplies kept the city's arms factories operating and its two million inhabitants barely alive, while another one million children and sick and elderly people were evacuated. (Answers.com)"

    Hola Amigo. Just reviewed some pics from Asia de Cuba dinner. I walk by the place every couple months to the theater next door. But... That will be in the past as I'm heading to San Diego / Baja BCS for the furture.

    If "Lost Isle" needs a refresh give a shout and head to Loreto, BCS.

    I absolutely agree with your opinions about the recent world. We need the beautiful and ugly realities squarely. We cannot suppress our negative feelings, that is bad. Nice meeting you!

Share your travels with the world!
