I’m from Indiana and I noticed the young girl was wearing an Indiana Pacers hat.
I realized the possibility of someone wearing such a hat not being from the Hoosier State would be rare, and also looking to strike up a conversation, I asked her if they were indeed from Indiana.

His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.
He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America and the aborigines of
Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.
He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.

He has published several books about his adventures.
