Writing in the Wichita Eagle, Mary Ann Anderson has written about places that you should see in your lifetime. The article is full of references to Kenya's Maasai Mara (a game preserve within the grassy plains of the Great Serengeti region), riding a camel to see the Pyramids at sunrise, paragliding over the Alps, floating down the Nile and experiencing the gastronomical delights of Paris.
