Your true traveler will not feel he has had his
money's worth unless he brings back a few scars.

-- Lawrence Durrell

June 1999

Hello, dear ones. It's hard to believe that it's been over three months since I posted my last newsletter and over five months since I left the United States. The rigors of travel have left their imprint, but it's been worth it -- there have been more interesting places on this leg of my journey than you can shake a stick at!

As with the last issue, I've combined this newsletter with pictures we've posted on the Internet -- feel free to move back and forth between the pages using the links provided. Unfortunately, the digital camera went on the blink in April, so you'll have to use your imagination to picture our adventures after that.

Now pour yourself a cool glass of lemonade, pull up an easy chair,
and come travel with me to rich and august lands.
