Travel Writing

My worst kept secret is that I would rather write about travel than politics — although I enjoy political writing, too, or I wouldn’t bother with it. This year I finally got to do a little travel writing. And if things go my way, next year I’ll write even more.
After I returned from Tunisia a few months ago I wrote two essays about my experience. The first was about the people. The second is about the country.
That second essay was put into deep freeze because the election overshadowed practically everything else. Now that the election is over it’s finally time to publish it. So here it is: Crossing the Fossa Regia. Please read this one. I worked hard on it.
