There is soooooo much more to this world than what’s outside your front door! I challenge each and every one of you to go out and explore it, get off the touristy beaten track and invest time in getting to know your neighbors, distant lands & beautiful cultures!  One only needs to start with a firm handshake, true eye contact and a warm heart!!!! Life After Retirement & My Passion II: 
Caption 1:
A sabanero (local cowboy) dances on top of his horse in the parade of horse riders during the start of Fiestas Cívicas de Cobano, Costa Rica on February 22, 2014. For the parade, sabaneros saddle their cherished and best horses to ride from the community hall in Cobano center to the fairgrounds. 
The two week Fiestas Cívicas de Cobano take place each year around the middle of February and consists of traditional food and music, proud horse riders and rodeo's with bull riding.

Caption 2:
Two Himba women and their dog stand next to the Kunene River on August 10, 2015 in the Kunene Region of Namibia. The Himba women are said to bathe once in their lifetime and that is before marriage. Each morning they rub a paste of butter, fat and red ochre on their skin and hair, giving them a distinctive red hue.

The Himba are indigenous peoples. One of Southern Africa's last traditionally living pastoral tribes with an estimated population of about 50,000 people living in northern Namibia, they are semi-nomadic with the men tending to livestock.

when yapii was five or six she had her modifications done. she says, "i really wanted to have this done and i had no fear at all". when the last tattooed apatani woman of arunachal pradesh passes, the tribe will lay to rest one of the most significant parts of their history and culture–the coming-of-age ritual of nose plugging and facial tattooing, two practices that historically defined what it meant to be an apatani woman.

WOW, where has the week gone???? I am truly blessed to have been a part of the Smithsonian Magazines Instagram takeover sharing my military journey with you all. Big thank you to all that have been involved!!! Today is my last day and I would like to share with you in a couple last posts my life after the military and my continuing passion of documenting our beautiful world and the amazing people who call it home.  Life After Retirement & My Passion I: 
Caption 1:
Kachemak Bay, Alaska. July, 2016.
Snowmelt and glacial runoff from Grewingk Glacier pour into Alaska’s Kachemak Bay. Light grey fine sediments are carried down river from glaciers that grind bedrock into powder as they slowly move along mountain valleys. Where the river meets the ocean, the sediment gradually disperses, and the water fades from bright turquoise to dark blue.

Caption 2:
A lone Hindu man is deep in prayer amongst the crowd of other pilgrims during his ritual bath on February 9, 2013 in Allahabad, India during the Kumbh Mela.

Formed by a flash flood after an earthquake in the year 1950, Madhuri Lake is originally known as Shonga-tser Lake, which is one of the most popular lakes in Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh. The lake was renamed so after the shooting of Bollywood movie Koyla, starring Madhuri Dixit, the beautiful actress. The lake has been surrounded by wonderfully lush valleys, and snow-capped mountains. A leisure walk is the best way to explore the picturesque surroundings of the lake.

The lake is managed by the Indian Army. There is a cafeteria too, near the lake where visitors can relish Maggi, Momos, with a cup of tea or coffee.  #sangetserlake #madhuripoint #madhurilake #tawang #tawangvalley #arunachal #arunachalpradesh #incredibleindia @incredibleindia @colors.of.india #solotravel #travelsolo #indiantraveller #soloindian #insta #landscape #landscapephotography @mytawang #solotraveller #instagood #instagoodmyphoto #nomadsofindia #millenialmusafir
