Modern travel has evolved from some strange ideas. One recent August morning we made a remarkable excursion starting in Lucerne, Switzerland, going to the top of 7000 foot Mount Pilatus, walking around and through the mountaintop, and back. I wonder what sort of crazy ideas might have led to the technologies that made our excursion possible…
350 horses came thundering down the road. Along with them came 50 of their Chinese riders, bent on invading new places and acquiring loot to bring back home.
I have something in common with Mark Twain.
