Bring on the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games

The power of the Olympic Games is truly amazing. It's almost like the entire world can exhale and finally enjoy itself for once. Political indifferences are put aside and even the harshest of enemies can join hands, like we saw this year with North and South Korea. For those two weeks everyone can look past the differences that set us apart as nations and focus on what brings us together as human beings.

City Explorations: Dubai & Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

City Explorations: Dubai & Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Elizabeth and I had a great time in the UAE. I know I was a little underwhelmed by my first impression, but the UAE has grown on me.
