Travel with Africah, the newest of the endeavors of Africah Harrigan, is a weekly blog that features activities, events, and fun things that she has done while traveling. Throughout her years of traveling, Africah has often found that people are a lot more enthusiastic to explore or try new things once they venture out from their hometown. However, they are the same people, who often overlook the beauty and attractions of their hometown and will probably opt to remain homebodies or follow a daily routine.
Whether you are a traveler or not, her philosophy is to “Live Life like a Tourist!” No matter where you are. By this, she means to explore new activities, attend a variety of events, or tantalize your taste buds with a new delicacy. Each place is unique. For instance, you can drive on a highway in Portland, Oregon that is parallel to snow-capped mountains, or drive alongside the aqua blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean on the waterfront in downtown Charlotte Amalie, U.S. Virgin Islands! Sit back, relax and join the journey with her.

We stopped In Tombstone Arizona on the way back from Los Cruces New Mexico. My wife and I had both finished reading a couple of books about Wyatt Earp, Doc Holiday, and the OK Corral.
So we decided to make the detour and go see it
First the Bad News, while the parking is free, any attraction you might want to see charges admission
The Ghost town part of town reminded me to much “Knott’s Berry Farm” and or Calico. I would have preferred a deserted set of buildings and a walking tour
Again I sort of figured it was a tourist place so was not expecting too much
The road in / out of town is heavily patrolled so watch your speed
The Good News
We ate at “Big Nose Kate’s Saloon” the food was quite good , the service was great , the entertainment was pretty good, and was a neat place to eat and let one’s imagination take over and be there with Doc Holiday, and the others.
My wife and split a brisket Sandwich and a bowl of chili and each had a “Doc Holiday “to drink (Mr. Pub) but hey indulge me
They had a gentleman doing some street dancing for tips that while not western was rather interesting to watch
A lot of the residents are dressed in period clothing which gives the place that western look.
My wife bought some earrings at a Native American store as souvenirs.
Tombstone is a neat place to stop and visit , check off the bucket list, eat at “Big Nose Kate’s Saloon” and enjoy a couple of hours to break up that LONG I -10 drive BUT I do not foresee it has my favorite destination site yet

Orania is an Afrikaner community striving towards self-determination. It currently has population of 1100 with an annual growth of 10 percent. James Kemp is the community's spokesperson.
Welcome! Lief-Orania is an internet portal where you'll find out more about accommodation in Orania, the town's economy and community. Find out why so many Afrikaners are getting involved with our community and feel free to browse through our business guide for more info regarding business opportunities in Orania. Our website is also available in Afrikaans.
Orania is an Afrikaner town located on the banks of the Orange River in the beautiful Upper-Karoo. In 1991 a group of Afrikaner pioneers bought an old and derelict town constructed in the 60's by the Dept. of Water Affairs. Since then the settlement has been reconstructed and has grown to a town in its own right, with around 1 000 permanent residents and more than 10 000 "uitwoners", i.e. people that haven't permanently settled in Orania yet but who are part of the community by being members of Orania Movement.
Orania is in every aspect a "green town" with friendly locals, excellent schools and facilities, interesting tourist attractions and a growing number of businesses that cater for most needs. However, there is a lot of opportunities for entrepreneurs in our community.
Orania is known for its clean surroundings and hospitable people, but the town is unique due to the fact that all labor is done by Afrikaners - from the bank manager to the builder, all work in Orania is done by Afrikaners!

My buddy Bob Mc Glew suggested a story line that was visit a ghost town and to do a short story about what you find there. So has we were traveling to Austin Texas on December 24 we stopped in Kent Texas just to see what was there and do a share some reflections . There is not much there but I did learn some valuable lessons. (1) the batteries in my digital camera fell out and promptly disappeared, (2) we were not sure what we would find but do the research first This show is dedicated to Robert Mc Glew my S3 productions foreign reporter for giving me the idea
COMMENTS: Kent. A ranch town born to supply the needs of the long x Cattle Company. The most famous of the west Texas ranches. Owned by the Reynolds brothers, prominent west Texas ranchers. Their holding consisted of several thousand acres extending from north of us highway 10 to several miles south into the Davis mountains. REMAINS: Lots of ruins but a lot still standing. http://www.ghosttowns.com/states/tx/kent.html
The town, once called Antelope, was founded in the early 1890s.
A post office was granted in 1893 and by 1914 the population was a thriving 25 persons. The population doubled in the mid-1920s and remained at that level for 40 years. The post office was reported closed in 1960 but has since reopened.
Kent had a population of sixty-five in the late 1960s - falling to 60 by the mid-1970s where it remains today.
Today little is left to interest a tourist - but the juncture of the two roads provides a sense of place. The lone telephone at least looks comforting but its condition is unknown. The overpass of I-10 offers some relief from the scorching sun but it will be sometime before Kent becomes a destination.
A special thank you to Excutive INN Best Western Round Rock for their help
Think all #Castle fans are still "processing this news..." from last night's episode. If you haven't watched it, you need to stop what you're doing and go watch it NOW! "Bad Santa" [aka Have Yourself A Mobster Little Christmas] was written by Dara and Chad Creasey and directed by Bill Roe. What started out as a light-hearted Castle-Family-Christmas-Rhyme-Fest, took a significant turn in the very last scene. Tonight's STR Round Table MAY involve a colorful set of responses to Elena's questions:

In last night’s episode of Castle we saw a giddy Rick get the opportunity to live out some of his childhood fantasies and hang with a few of his Action Hero idols. Throughout the episode we were also given the chance to be right there along side Beckett while she packed up her treasures and said goodbye to her apartment, her home, for so many Castle episodes/seasons. This home held so many emotional memories for her and the audience that it was nice to be able to see Beckett embrace her memories and be hopeful for her future in her new home with Rick Castle. “Last Action Hero” was written by Christine Roum and directed by Paul Holahan.
Here are Elena's STR Round Table Questions for tonight:
