Prepare to experience the world in unfamiliar ways
through the eyes of an indefatigable retired physicist
turned amateur cultural anthropologist who abhors
tourist crowds and has wandered the world for the past
thirty years with little more than a fat US passport, a
twenty pound backpack, a tiny "spy" camera, a pair of

snoops to guide his quests until a cozy retreat meeting
his comfort and pecuniary constraints eventually
materializes... only rarely sleeping in an airline
lounge or bus terminal.
