“But that's the glory of foreign travel, as far as I am concerned. I don't want to know what people are talking about.

You can't read anything, you have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work, you can't even reliably cross a street without endangering your life. Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses.”

Only through travel can we know where we belong or not, where we are loved and where we are rejected.”
Roman Payne, Cities & Countries
