I recently did a series of posts on the American Southwest for my blog. I finished the series with my story of obtaining photography permits from the Navajo Nation.

So when I started planning for a trip to the Southwest that was to include visits to three Navajo parks: Monument Valley, Canyon de Chelly, and Antelope Canyon, I started an internet search to determine if a permit was truly needed, and if so, what was the cost. My whole experience turned out to be an adventure in bureaucracy.

One of the potential disappointments of modern travel is that sometimes a new town or country simply does not seem different enough from the places we're familiar with. I remember many years ago travelling, with a great sense of anticipation, to Honolulu. It was my first long-haul flight and what, I imagined rather naively, would be my first experience of an "exotic" island. I was bitterly disappointed, my initial sight of Waikiki reminded me mainly of Benidorm with an inferior beach and much less evidence of an indigenous culture.
