Thank you Mohamad for this fantastic experience of being a continued guest author on your blog. You have a wonderful following of beautiful people, whom I am grateful to be meeting along the way. Today I bring a favorite or rather a traditional food of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in America.
I extend my heartfelt gratitude to Mohamad for inviting me to be a guest author here on his blog and for allowing me to continue forth with more writings of the two American States (Michigan & California) that have been my home. You are very kind, Mohamad, thank you.
I will continue with the State of Michigan, located in the northern Midwest of America. You can read an introduction to Michigan, here: Michigan USA ~ Welcome, in case you missed it. In that post, I explained how Michigan is actually two states and the only state like it.
I am grateful to Mohamad for inviting me to be a guest author on his blog. I will be writing more than one post, for I have a lot to share in the “Around the World” category. I will be focusing on one of the two states where I have lived in America: Michigan and California.
Knowing Michigan (mIH-shih-guhn) the best, I will begin with a poem I created. If you are not familiar with Michigan, you are in for quite a treat, for it is the only state in America, of its kind.
Welcome to Michigan
a poem for the renagain original collection
Michigan has two pieces of land
Miles of beaches and lots of sand
I absolutely love traveling, but when I made my first trip to Phoenix, Arizona in 2014 I fell head-over-heels in love with the city. So much so as soon as I got home I packed up my car and moved across country. It was a breath of fresh air in comparison to the midwestern city I had been residing in the past few years. I loved all of it; the sun, the heat, the vegetation, the people. It was like my own little slice of heaven on earth.
Since then I loved sharing my favorite spots with people visiting. Here’s my list of top five things you must do the next time you find yourself around Phoenix.
This is my first guest posting, thank you Mohamad for the invitation.
The village of Chinle is a “census designate place”, in other words it only exists because people live there, it was not formally recorded in “official” records. On the Navajo reservation, people lived here beyond recorded time. It is called in their language “flowing out”, where live giving water flows out from the canyons.

This past weekend I attended Austin’s 29th Annual Children Giving to Children Parade – a collaborative event with the Operation Blue Santa Program.
Their goal? To collect toys for the children whose parents can’t afford to buy them.
Since 1987, the concept of a parade grew. This weekend, thousands of spectators arrived to view the giant balloons, holiday floats, mariachi bands, jugglers and more.
Sometimes you don’t have to travel further than your own state to enjoy unique scenery. And Texas’ landscapes are about as diverse as the state is wide. Nope, we’re not all flat, all wet or all dry.
Like the wet and cool?
