Time to Travel

Well I know it'll be alright if I just get on the road...
-If I Run, Semisonic

It's time for me to travel again. To take a 4 x 4 to Timbuctou. To see the mud mosques firsthand. To be challenged. To visit the fistula clinic in Gao (or is it Mopti?). To watch mudcloth being produced. To travel light. To fly into Douala. To remember how life elsewhere is not like life here.

Thanks to pei wei from Malaysia who astutely observed that Miss Universe was once again won by a "walking toothpick with a marble for a head."

Thai proverb of the day: Don't sell coconuts to gardeners.
