They have lived with former head hunters in Borneo, sailed down the Nile River in a wooden felucca, lived and camel trekked with nomads in the Great Gobi desert of Mongolia, hiked and slept under the stars with Bedouins in the Libyan and the Sahara desserts, trekked to the Everest base camps in both Nepal and Tibet, hiked the great wall in China, trekked in the jungles of Thailand and Malaysia, rummaged through the great bazaars of Istanbul, Damascus Syria, Marrakech Morocco and Beirut Lebanon. Road the Trans- Siberian railroad end to end, across Russia, shipped up the Amazon River, explored most every south american country, traversed Mexico. While on these journeys, you will, find Joseph dealing with the locals or in the back alley's in search of an unusual art work or antique. It is this extensive world travel and digging that brings the diversity of items for sale on this site.
