Welcome to this week's TravelTalkMEDIA Newsletter

We are publishing our TravelTalkNEWSLETTER a day early this week to announce the launch of the new Africa Peace Caravan Web site.

The new Web site was developed by TravelTalkMEDIA and will follow the 2008-2009 Africa Peace Caravan on its journey throughout Africa to promote peace and freedom on the African continent.

The departure from Arusha, Tanzania on November 14, 2008 signified the official start
and first phase of the Africa Peace Caravan.

Thanksgiving Day November 27, 2008
TravelTalkMEDIA Announces Creation and Launch of
New Web Site for Africa Peace Caravan

The Web site officially launched on
Thanksgiving Day, November 27, 2008

Arusha was chosen as the starting point for the caravan because it served as the site of the 2008 Africa Travel Association (ATA) Congress. The caravan will travel to Djibouiti where additional plans are being made for the second phase. Continued . . .

Safe travels and until next week,

Special Thanksgiving Holiday Message


from our good friend
and colleague,
Sujit Ch
owdhury
Secretary General
of the World Tourism
Marketing Summit

"Dear Sandy,
As you prepare to celebrate THANKSGIVING DAY-2008, I wanted to wish you and your family a splendid occasion. On this Thanksgiving Day, to you, I have much to be thankful for. Firstly, I take great pride being in a position to communicate with you. I am personally thankful for your friendship and support, your guidance and collegiality, and indeed, your decency and winning smile!

On this Thanksgiving Day, I am thankful to all Americans for nurturing a Government which gives each person a fair chance and no favor, that you allow no birth to be looked down upon and held in contempt. This is America. That America continues to be cooperative through the means of adjusting, the cooperation has become more varied and enlarged. A THANK YOU is well deserved! 

Yours is a NATION of toil and effort, and overcoming challenges is the order of the day of which you are a Master Navigator! As Mark Twain said, "this is an age of progress, and ours is a progressive land." So Celebrate! 

In thinking of you, I remain,

Sujit Chowdhury"

a culinary master,
about her fabulous
restaurant at the
Second Story Eat and Drink
at the Belamar Hotel
only 10 minutes from
Los Angeles Airport in
Manhattan Beach, California.


The Belamar Hotel

Like the Kimberly Hotel in NYC,
the Belamar Hotel in LA offers its guests a sanctuary away from home. The Belamar is a modern Los Angeles experience with service and care second to no one.

This was Sandy's favorite light dinner at Stenden University's on-campus restaurant and she enthusiastically recommends:

"It was amazing to look at and even better to eat! Stenden's world renowned chefs are the heart of the education. When you are in Leeuwarden in the Netherlands, stay at the University's hotel on the campus and enjoy the delicious epicurean delights at the school run restaurant. High cuisine is guaranteed!"
