Atlanta as the Eye of Sauron


Altanta! The Big Peach! The ATL! Hot’Lanta! The Watermelon 500! The City that Kudzu Ate! While on the flight down I realized that it had been a decade since I was last in Atlanta. Back at that time, I was working for the Swiss and I was touring Emory University with my pal Mark, who […]

San Francisco

 Just look at this legroom! This is what Seat 17A on an Air Canada AirBus 319 looks like from the sitting position. The seat itself is pretty uncomfortable and too narrow, there’s no power plug and the fold-out table doesn’t seem capable of supporting the complimentary bevering of your choice, but wow! Legroom!

The doors to Restaurant Guy Savoy

Guess where I’m standing?

I always said that I’d make it back to 17, rue Troyon one day. And perhaps next time, I’ll actually go inside le Restaurant Guy Savoy. So never mind why I’m in the City of Lights, but I am having a better time of it than the last go since it’s bereft of problem children […]
