incognito Nov-Dec 2006

I’ve ascended 365 steps and am standing at the largest Buddhist stupa in this small country.  I am surrounded by monkeys, monks, and soldiers.  It is an odd combination at one of the oldest holy sites in this area.  From its high spot overlooking the valley – large eyes painted on all four walls peer out symbolizing Buddha watching over you.   This stupa, near the capital city, was built over 2,000 years ago.  Pilgrims climb its steps daily before dawn and circle its golden spire.

incognito July-Aug 2006


I am surrounded by stone. Stone houses, stone ovens, stones piled into fences to line the edge of olive groves. The people of this region chose to build their stone homes round, with cone shaped roofs, looking something like beehives. The houses have tiny windows and are naturally warm in winter and cool in summer.

incognito May-June 2006


I stand at the edge of the sea at the home of the most praised poet of this country. His surrealist style is mirrored in a fantastical custom-built home, now a museum, run by a foundation in his name. His extensive collections of everything from busts to bottles to boats fill the house and spill out into the yard.

Dear inTravel,

Regarding this article on carbon offsets...

I find it quite annoying that she doesn't even bother to discuss the
enormous criticism of the entire concept of carbon offsets raised by
Monbiot and others. I suggest running the below as an alternate
view/rebuttal to her pollyanna comments:

Let's not labor under any illusion that our current airplane travel
regime, with or without carbon offsets, is somehow compatible with
efforts to stop the worst effects of global warming.

(I know this sounds like bad news for inTravel fans, but the good
news is if we ditch airplanes entirely, we might both save the planet
and switch to a more inDepth way of traveling - Zeppelins, which
because they travel slower would encourage much longer trips....)
