I'm very lucky in that I've had many opportunities to travel. I've been to India for extended periods of time to visit relatives, I taught English in Czechoslovakia right after the Velvet Revolution, I was in the Soviet Union when it disintegrated, and I was working in Russia during the military coup attempt two years later. I've also had the good fortune to be able to work with Chinese libraries in a professional capacity, and I traveled through many great places while I was a student.

I took few pictures on my trips because I feel like I'm distancing myself from what I came to see in first place when I start looking at them through a viewfinder. Enough yammering on. Just click on a tab above to see one of my trips. I promise those pages contain interesting pictures and relatively little drivel from me.
