Personal:  Images
Traveling is not just seeing the new; it is also leaving behind. Not just opening doors; also closing them behind you, never to return. But the place you have left forever is always there for you to see whenever you shut your eyes.
-- Jan Myrdal

These images come from 1995 and afterward, mostly from trips I've taken. Time permitting, I'll add some more pictures from Egypt, and some shots from trips to Japan, Washington D.C. and Cape Cod.

You can click on any image for a larger view; the larger pictures average around 60-80k, so those of you with slow connections may wish to forego that pleasure.

General pictures

This is me at a conference in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, without sunglasses or a cameraman. You get what you pay for.
Here I am with friends atop one of the great pylons at the Temple of Habu, near Luxor, Egypt. Just in case you can't tell, I'm second from the left.
A great thinker and a mindless blockhead...but which is which?

London pictures

In 1998, my friend Jeff Woodside and I took a weekend trip to London. He'd already been there, but this was my first trip to Europe, and my chance to gawk at famous tourist sites like Westminster Abbey and the British Museum. I had a wonderful time; for an uptight Anglophile like me, London is a lot more fun than San Francisco.
I'm sporting a foolish grin, somewhere among the government administrative buildings in London.
Chronicling the events of the day in the pub, a pint of stout at my side. (Stout is awful stuff, by the way.)
Jeff and I standing in front of the British Museum.
Standing in a British telephone box; this one is purely for laughs. You're laughing, right?
I'm standing on Raleigh's Walk in the Tower of London. Behind me, perhaps unsurprisingly, is Tower Bridge.
Standing across the street from the Tower. For those of you who thought that the Tower of London was actually a tower, surprise!
In front of Big Ben. The entrance to Westminster Abbey is immediately to your right. I can't remember if I was shivering or yawning.
