I was planning to write about my travel ordeal the other day, my three thousand mile coast to coast trip that took sixteen hours door to door. But then I remembered my trip from the Nepal-India border to Varanasi back in February, when it took me 13-1/2 hours to travel less than 250 miles. This one sort of pales in comparison. I've often wondered at how my best stories came from the worst travel experiences. Getting stuck in the Atlanta airport, that's a drag, but not much of a story.
