Vicarious Voyages – B.C.V

How long has it been?  What day is it?  Who’s that person in the mirror?  What crazy thing can I do today?

Well, I decided to get my old…and I do mean old…slides out to see what the heck was happening in day’s (daze) past.  Back to the future of 1989 and my first trip to the African continent.  Now, my slide projector does not have a USB port or the like, so I set out to convert the slides (slides are kind of like film (film is what used to be used in cameras (cameras are big clunky things that you use to take pictures with))).  I unwrapped my slide converter that I had bought about 8 years ago to complete this project.  Who knew if it would work to get those slides into a digital format and load it up on my Mac?

Well, here are the results…this first batch is from Egypt (1989)  Enjoy.
