Thank you for your visit and kind words.

The ride in this submarine was very exciting as it was the first time for all of us. There are large portholes in the side which give everyone a fantastic vies of the fish and clear blue water.

The water was so clear that I was able to take photos of the fish and inside of the submarine at a depth of approximately 55 or 60 feet, without using my flash.

Greetings to Nanjing from America, Leo

Thank you, Eva.

Interesting journey indeed! From Cairo to Abu Simbel to the Valley of the Kings and Luxor, our Egypt vacation was the most interesting and exciting of any trip we ever took.

Best wishes, Leo

Leo, that surely was a great adventure. My son has been diving in the Red Sea and he was fascinated by the beauty of the under water world. Warm greetings, May

Thank you, Kuka for you very kind words.

Before I can upload the other photos, I have to find them and scan them as they were taken a long time ago. They are somewhere in a big box with about 1000 other photos. Wish me luck.

You lucky man Leo! I would have loved to have had a trip like that :) >))):> Anita

Leo Roundtree on February 15, 2009

Thank you,Anita.

Lucky indeed! How many people can say they jet skied with their son on the Red Sea?

What a bonding moment to sit in the burial chamber of the Pyramid of Khafre, just my 19 year-old son and me. I'll never forget the look of awe on his face as he said, "I can't believe I'm inside a pyramid". I wouldn't trade that for the world.

The entire trip was amazing and the people among the friendliest we met anywhere.

Pardon me for going on so.

Best wishes, Leo

Leo, I can only imagine the sheer joy of sitting amongst that spectacular Pyramid, I suppose I shall never do that :( I'm so very happy that you have experienced it :) Best wishes, Anita

Leo Roundtree on February 15, 2009


It was the experience of a lifetime made better by being there alone with my son. It's not easy to impress a 19 year-old, but that did it.

The other great thing we did together was to climb Mt Fuji when he was 14.

Best wishes, Leo
