844 days, 20,256 hours, 1,215,360 minutes, or 72,921,600 seconds. That is the approximate duration of my world tour. I never wanted it to end and now, in a manner of speaking, I suppose it never has to. If you wish to go by country do so by clicking on one above. They are numbered in the order I visited them, more or less. If you enjoy reading about it even a tenth as much as I enjoyed living it then you will not have wasted your time. Grab a refreshing beverage, settle in a comfortable chair, and make a journey across the world, experiencing it as I did. Then get off your ass and check it out for yourself. You're not getting any younger.

i had a run at sundarbans...... (Bangladesh)

i had a run at Sundarbans
that mangrove treasure trove
watched a croc a slithering
swam where dolphins dove

i walked among the halophytes
whose misguided roots abound
froze amidst the fertile calm
absorbing every sound

i stood beside the fishermen
regaled by salty tales
they spoke of stealthy pirates
and thieving iron whales

by boat I scanned the shore
by foot I manned the beach
with birds and deer and wild boar
just slightly out of reach

a monkey here and there
a lizard in a tree
twas glad to wave and grin hello
but they're not what I came to see

for in this swampy wonderland
do you know what can be found?
a pretty orange kitty cat
that likes to swim around

if Mother Nature favors you
and the kitty feels inclined
you may just get to feast your eyes
upon the universe refined

and though they are a marvel
to ponder and behold
these kings and queens are powerless
their fate they do not hold

the plight of pretty kitty
and all that they hold deer
you will find is intertwined
with the bipeds in the rear

a blight upon our honor
if Shangri-La is lost
but just in case I've shown my face
to remember at all costs

so where the Ganges meets the sea
in Asia's hidden cove
I had a run at Sundarbans
that mangrove treasure trove.
