The Travelling Accountant

I can count on one hand the times I gazed upon a view so magnificent it literally took my breath away.  The last one before this trip was when I viewed the vast expanse of the Sahara desert atop my camel watching the sun set a year ago and now here, seeing the Treasury at […]
