As we wrestle with concrete, bright yellow butterflies fly overhead. In Haiti, always the moment of small beauty.

Placid lagoon flush with a thousand footfalls, wading through purring pigeons. Hazy horizons hide the world. There is only Venice.

I love the smell of upgraded leather biz class seats in the morning.

When I’m in Amsterdam, I drink beer like it’s water. Just like they did in the Middle Ages. So I tell myself I’m being respectful of history

d’ya think if we give iceland our extra consonants, the volcano will release the hostages? “Eyjafjallajökull” might just be a cry for help.

Gorging myself on American-style breakfasts before I leave for Prague. What I gain in beer I lose in the finer points of eggs.

In Phoenix: golf courses in deserts strike me as more obscene than pornography.

I heard my first growl of frustration from a Venetian on my 2nd day in the city. She was behind me & I was lost. Again.
