Houston Gay Pride, 2017

Houston’s Gay Pride Festival was held for the second year downtown in front of City Hall in Houston.  This time the police made no attempt to keep participants out of the reflecting pool.   There were far more women there than men although I suspect the numbers reversed in the evening for the parade.  Temperatures were kept reasonable by rain and clouds making it only almost as hot as hell rather than hotter.  The girls were wilder this year than in the past with several sporting pasties.

Siem Reap, Cambodia

This was the last stop on the Southeast Asia trip.  The town is full of tourists because it is near Angkor Wat.

Luang Prabang, Laos

After leaving Viet Nam I spent a few days in the Luang Prabang area. Although it was fun, I would only recommend this stop if you have a lot of time.

Maui is known for its endless beaches and the volcano Haleakala. This trip I didn’t bother with the twisty road to Hana.   The shot above is a stitched panorama of the crater.
