Mariana- I really enjoyed this talk on travel, and I love this Author, Andrew Solomon. I put it here so you could listen easily. I hope you enjoy it and it helps you keep up your English! Saudade. I miss you!
p.s. I went hiking in the redwoods today to celebrate the day my mother was born. The photo on the right is a vertical panorama (click photo to see bigger). It was a beautiful day.
2017: Far and Away: How Traveling to 87 Countries Made Me Who I Am
At a time when the value of internationalism, along with its ethic of the common good, has been forcefully thrown into question, National Book Award-winning author ANDREW SOLOMON believes that learning about cultures other than our own is more essential than ever as a “necessary remedy to our perilously frightening times.” For the past twenty-five years, Solomon has been traveling to far-off places, many of them in the midst of seismic political, cultural and spiritual shifts. The literary result, as novelist Salman Rushdie has said, is much more than travel writing; it is “a portrait of our world.” Travels to countries like Myanmar, Afghanistan and South Africa have opened Solomon’s eyes and burnished his compassion and his courage. Join him as he takes us far and away, introducing us to the friends he has made along the way and reminding us that we are citizens not just of nations, but of the world.
