It is late afternoon, and my wife and I are sitting in soft lounge chairs and sipping cocktails from crystal glasses. Outside our window, the dry, golden grasslands of the karoo, interrupted only by windmills and abandoned farmhouses, stretch out for miles as if reaching into another day. Here, deep in the heart of South Africa's outback, the landscape is almost like a meditation, relaxing in its sameness. But the spell is broken when, out of nowhere, an ostrich appears, running madly within several yards of our window.

NEW YORK -- They should be the most sweet-tempered visitors Florida has seen in a long time, travelers spared the cramped ordeal of the airplane, the tired jostle at the baggage claim. People ready to greet Florida with the sunny ebullience of the state's first great promoter, Henry Flagler.For those who have the time and money, the chance returns to travel to Florida as Flagler once did. America's only privately run passenger railroad, the Royal Floridian, offers twice-weekly service from New York to Miami with stops in Orlando, West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale, providing a glimpse into luxuries little known since ol' Henry was King of the Railroad Barons.

My Best ShotA desert storm's swift furyBy Thomas H. Manning, Glen BurnieIn September of 1976, we were working at Navajo Methodist Mission School in Farmington, N.M., and over Labor Day weekend took a short camping trip to Monument Valley on the Arizona-Utah border. That Saturday afternoon, we saw an ominous storm coming toward us from across the valley. I turned the trailer's rear end into the wind and left the station wagon hitched for added stability. I took the three remarkable pictures just before I had to seek shelter.

Sharon Psalmonds can finally put away the trash can and plastic bucket that were catching the leaking water in her second-floor back room. A roofing contractor plugged the leak in her Bayview home yesterday as the sun shone and temperatures rose to near 50 degrees.But the East Baltimore resident was among the lucky few. Thousands of other area residents will wait weeks -- perhaps months -- for repairs as ice and snow continue to block their rain gutters and the backlogs of contractors and insurance adjusters grow.

WASHINGTON -- After returning home from a visit to Chin and Hong Kong aboard a military jet, several Bush administration officials plan to tour Moscow and St. Petersburg at government expense -- several days before the inauguration of Bill Clinton forces them from office.The American Embassy in Moscow has tried informally and unsuccessfully to discourage the trip, saying it is unnecessary, according to an official who is critical of the trip.More planning has gone into the amenities for a luxury train trip from Moscow to St. Petersburg than into the actual agenda for the trip, which will have something to do with the conversion of Russian military factories to civilian production, the official says.

But whenever you go, look for savings along with the sights. The Royal Scotsman luxury train is offering a 50-percent companion fare for its four-day, Edinburgh round-trip Classic journey, July 18-22. The regular price is $5,580 per person fully inclusive, which means a savings of $2,790.
