What an image of self-pitying brilliance. Gazing out a rainy Seattle from my lonely stateroom, seasick and self-righteously pissed-off. That about sums up the cruise portion of the trip.


This picture was snapped at the torture museum in Cambodia. In this picture, each tourist was reading testimonials about Cambodians watching their parents or children being taken away to “work camps”. No one there said anything. We all kept silently shuffling from testimonial to testimonial avoiding each other's eye contact and privately annoyed that there were other people around us.
