I enjoy going to classes (religion, history, philosophy, etc.,). Museums are fun, as well as traditional type music concerts. I also like playing Bridge and reading non fiction, history, and mystery books. I enjoy stimulating conversations and different viewpoints. I am passionate about the Mid-east, it's history, religions, politics, and people's viewpoints on the subject. I also like to travel, and want someone who would enjoy going with me. I have been to all the countries of the northern Mediterranean and area------from Spain to Turkey, have been to Israel, and recently spent time in Jordan/Egypt and then Morocco/Spain. These were pleasure trips, as well as educational.I enjoy the outdoors (gardens, nature walks and boating), world folk music, dining out, discussing politics, and most other stimulating converstations. I have a need for learning all I can learn.Added note: I recently gave a travelogue on my Jordan/Egypt trip, and afterwards three people told me that if they had not known it was me in the pictures, they'd never have recognized me. True. I am not photogentic! I like my looks, but not my pictures!
