May 18 Jackie Bell of Anaheim likes to travel off the beaten path, so she went far afield, to Burkina Faso and Timbuktu, Mali, for her 70th birthday. On a side trip to Mali's Dogon country, she was treated to a dance by villagers. "The masks are incredible," she said. "They were brilliantly colored." Dancers "came streaming out of the mountains. That's why I am a travel junkie; you see some things that just transport you." Her camera is a Nikon Coolpix L11.
