Around the World with Baden Powell
Words, Pictures & Links on the World-Wide Web

This page is a collection of links derived from my travels about the World Wide Web and specific searches using the Alta-Vista, Lycos, Web Crawler, and InfoSeek Search Engines. They are by no means complete. I have indicated a number of out-of-date links and several under revision with a red highlight. I hope to bring these up-to-date as soon as I can. If the site is in a language other than English this is noted with a green highlight. A date indicates the last time the site was accessed. Over the coming months, I plan to expand this list through research and correspondence. If you come across any interesting B-P links in your own travel, please let me know. You can reach me through the Pine Tree Web or directly by E-Mail at . I hope you finds these links of interest.
