    beautiful post Paul. You know you take us all with you whereever you go! We await each recount with anticipation. For those who may never visit the world as you have/do, you bring the world to us.
    Those 'may have been' moments are exactly why I have hesitated going back to my old stomping grounds in California. Even a few years absence (about 5) we returned and everything, everyone was unrecognizable. That's what happens when you live in an area that is iconic in it's time. California was mecca during the 60s, 70s.
    I looked our home up online and the mere fact that the giant (well at least through a child's viewpoint) Weeping Willow in our yard, with branches that hid you from the outside word, had been removed and replaced by a vast concrete driveway...I actually heard myself say: "oh, they destroyed my fortress of solitude!".

    I really enjoyed this read @Paul Walters. I had no idea you spent part of your years growing up in Cape Town! Maybe if time stood still we'd want for more... more of our past that we are supposed to move on from? I remember my first love and I did find him................. oh on FB that is LOL. I never sent a friends request and I must say, he aged well. I pictured him to be a bit frumpy, not sure why. He had a fairly good shorter afro growing for a white boy back in the day. The photos are beautiful, the story was serene. I'm going to have the song "Build me up Buttercup," replaying in my brain tonight now, great song- sound advice!

    How lovely this is reflecting on the "what was" and the "what is". Memory lane is constantly in motion as we move through life. My hometown, Orlando, FL, has very little resemblance to what it was when I lived there. Even though most of my tangible memories have been altered, my intangible memories remain intact. Thank you for share, Paul.

    Paul, I don't know where the line comes from but your piece struck a chord in me and the words "you can't go home again." emerged from the mist. Each time I return to visit my growing up place in Ohio I struggle with the same kind of vanishments that you mention. It is at once disheartening and a justification for the mileage I've racked up elsewhere. Thank you for a glimpse into your view of a world city with both the eyes of a teenager and those of the man he came to be.

    Ah, to be immersed in the ancient cries of home, only to find you are in the midst of being alone. Reminiscing in your mind the lands, the days and happy times. To be at the table where the bony fingers of Father Time grip tightly the cup that holds all that was and is to be. Mother Earth smiles as clinks her cup she and shifts that which was to that which is. And, Fate the Sisters Three, giggle and cackle in morbid glee, with scissors held so close to thee.

    #15 I concur @Deb 🐝 Helfrich when travel is also our work then the mind opens up whole new vista's, when our passions are travel, whether they are combined with work or not, even more is revealed (and that is what I am now discovering from following both @Paul Walters and @Dean Owen and their experiences as globetrotters).

    Yet when travel is simply a function of our work, it is the work we see. Now I can say that I took a work trip to Belgium, or a work trip to Brazil, or a work trip to South Africa, but that does not encompass experiences of what word "travel" can rise to as awareness, learning, appreciation and even (for sure) an international wisdom .

    When it is work rather than travel, even the Queen has to sit and watch how the natives dance for her, yet the countries she visited would be kinder to just introduce her to Paul or Dean and see how they both have learned to see the world and then let her go where she please, and in that regard even the Queen loses something when duty came first, unless of course when she is free.

    A philosophical vignette, @Paul Walters, that paints a fantastic portrait of the young you, and two stages of Cape Town.

    Ah, those memories. I doubt if anyplace hasn't evolved past recognition in the last 20, most assuredly 30 years. And of course, all humans morph entirely in that span of time.

    But then there is the absolutely true difference in perspective of being a visitor versus being a local. Having traveled & consulted in a fair amount of places, I think the division has less to do with amount of time spent and everything to do with whether you are someplace to carry out work. Exempting the lovely profession of writing, when my travel was all about business, the place was a barely noticeable backdrop to the grind of 8 hr days - well actually, as a traveling software consultant, they were more likely 12 hr work days.

    Even with the odd weekend dedicated to pure tourism, the places I've worked were seen with an entirely different perceptual overlay than the places were my time was thoroughly my own to spend.

    Which is to say, I have love affairs with the places I've merely visited and would re-engage the rendezvous without hesitation. But the places I've worked, have lost that allure, that marvelous sense of freedom and open possibility in each unfolding moment.

    As I read this travel buzzes I am increasingly convinced that the travelers brain is far different perspective holder than a residents brain. I used to make the distinction between traveler and tourist, but it is fairly mute because both still travel, but a resident can reside in one place and never travel.

    Think Sara Palin the VP candidate in the Republican Primaries on the John McCain ticket, Palin it is said knew very little of the global world, remaining mostly if not all her life in the realm of the United States, and so the parody of SNL took hold where they project her saying "I can see Russia from my window" .

    I did go to South Africa but solely as a part of the organization I was working with and not as a traveler, and in comparing notes in terms of "travel", there is no comparison to my experience and the experience articulated here, it is self-evident in this comparison that I do not possess a travelers brain. I would not see or think about place in the way it is graphically and intricately expressed - and so it is I have not (at least to date) learned to see the world this way.

    In this buzz I can see how travel may enrich the soul and that I have the soul of a homeboy. It is never too late to cultivate or inculcate a new perspective, but sometimes we are simply who we are and so we can accept that as who we are, but a buzz like this is an appreciation of what is sensory to a traveler and in appreciating that, the genuine traveler provides an illuminating sight.

    How fondly we look back and reminisce,
    At past 'what if's' cocooned in frozen bliss,
    But, as life's journey moulds how we have changed,
    Those we once knew are also rearranged,
    And places where we played down memory lane,
    Are oft transformed and seldom stay the same.

    It's good when we can catch up,
    Without attempts to match up.

    Thanks again for bringing back memories, Pak Paul, which at my age are vague indeed. I visited Istanbul too many years ago with a bunch of engineers newly graduated from Aberdeen Uni. Even back then there was a security scare which prevented us from visiting the Bosporus Bridge (first one) which was under construction. My memories of 'Turkish delight' were the 'entertainment' in an infamous nightclub from which we were ejected for ..... well that's a different story. I'm pretty sure we visited the iconic places you mention and which you have beautifully illustrated, but my recollection was distorted through beer goggles. Another prime example of life being wasted on the young. 😂

    Turkey is a very interesting place if only because I have noted how young Turkish people have adapted to social networks and so I can only judge from my own biased perspective of very enlightening and pleasant encounters.

    While the expression "Young Turks" is generally a positive, a growing expression is "Mechanical Turks" but this is not about Turkish people, it is about the research industry who use a form of cheap labour to conduct research.

    Erdogan does not much help matters politically speaking but I must give credit to Turkish people who recognize the value within Turkey of a secular culture. When I combine that with the rich history and geographical beauty of Turkey as outlined in this buzz, no wonder @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee also speaks fondly and with respect for the place he has often visited in a business capacity.

    One day I hope to visit Istanbul, hopefully not as a part of my aging farewell tour but while I am still relatively a "Young Turk" :-)

    Must be a generation thing, Vincent, or perhaps a cultural one, but Sandakan and the Death Marches have retained a certain degree of infamy here in Oz. My own travels have taken me about 300km short of where these particular servicemen perished, to the northern tip of Kalimantan Timur, when, as a newly wed young engineer, I was tempted to take up an isolated position in Pulau Bunyu. Looking back, I must admit to not having spared any thought then for how close I was to such remnant horror, human depravity and "man's inhumanity to man".

    "They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

    While "Never turn your back on the ocean" may be sound advice, I know someone who was staring straight-up at a wave as it broke on him, pushing him into the sand. He was lucky; it just screwed up his shoulders. One should never drink from open streams while in Hawaii, either, as they are full of Giardia and cause Giardasis (affecting the intestines). Believe me, you don't want to go through this; it is very painful.

    Hi @Paul Walters, as usual, very descriptive. I'm glad Dean was able to point you in the direction of The Elephant bar, sounds like it certainly didn't disappoint! You wrote: "The Chinese, Japanese and Koreans are pouring untold millions into the construction of scores of apartment and office complexes, though who will occupy them? The Chinese, Japanese and Koreans I guess." Those were my thoughts too as I read it before reading your reaction. Wow, I had no idea about the secret prison, Khmer Rouge, that's so sad... understatement.

    G'day, Pak Paul. Now that you've visited the largest religious monument in the world, I trust you are suitably well versed in all things about Vishnu and Buddha? My jealousy knows no bounds but this place is way too large to fit in my list bucket. I need to look at your pics on my Mac later as one of the failings of beBee posts on the iPhone is you can't zoom in Where to next?

On behalf of all the wonderful Khmer people I know, thank you for sharing their story.

    #27 I know that Mike Oldfield song well but it's been so long since I heard it. Just had a listen. Definitely, along with the ending song for Gallipoli, Adagio in G Minor, definitely one of the most harrowing ending credits to any movie.

    A visit to the "Killing Fields" and the prison makes a trip to Cambodia a little hard to digest but it does not fade from importance and I agree, we must never forget... I find it particular fitting that they have chosen to keep the blood on the walls and the torture wire frame bed just as they were.
