This is not a travel blog. I tried and then I tried again but I like and thrive on making stuff up, ie, writing fiction. It takes a long time for me to thoroughly remove myself from my travel (after I get home) in order to analyze and write about what happened. Maybe someday I will develop this talent. For now, you’ll have to bear with me and read a list of places I’ve visited.
