Seems like this is my week for hosting. Here in Owen Sound my dance group just held their big dance weekend plus I was host to two out-of-town dancers who needed a place to stay. It was a lovely weekend and my feet are just starting to recover. I even learned to tango and sort of sing in harmony.
Now today it’s my turn to host the Blogging Boomers Carnival. We’re a collection of baby boomers who also happen to blog. While our topics may be diverse (travel, fashion, business, aging) we all write from a boomer perspective and for a boomer audience.
The Carnival is a weekly event, with rotating hosts. Each member of the carnival submits their best post of the past week. Each Monday the host puts these posts together into a single post, complete with links.
Your job, as a visitor to the carnival, is to visit the blogs of the articles that catch your eye, read the posts, and if you are so moved, to join in the conversation by leaving a comment or passing along the link via Twitter, Facebook or your social media tool of choice. After all, blogging isn’t just about one person writing and another person reading; it’s about having a conversation.
So, lets get started:
Descending into Mexico’s Copper Canyon, Barbara Weibel at Hole In The Donut Travels takes a hair-raising bus ride to the village of Batopilas, on a dirt road that’s barely large enough for the bus, much less oncoming traffic. The video tells the story.
