Minox-B "spy" camera I used while traveling during the last millennium. It is a beautiful piece of German technology and a pleasure to fondle. Unfortunately, the resolution of even snapshots is not very good. The chain/lanyard contains beads used for precisely measuring distance to secret documents the agent is trying to photograph!

31 January 1998



Hello from Santa Barbara California,


These are some of the notes I made during my 67 day sojourn through some of the most conflict ridden areas of our contemporary world during February-March 1998. At some point I hope to expand my notes and add links to the 150 pictures I took on the trip. FB 6/6/98

I'm on my way to Israel through the Balkans, Greece, Turkey, Syria, Jordan and Palestine.
