"...but travel maps have always been provisional and penciled in, continually updated. The map of the possible world being redrawn right now - parts of it in tragic and unsettling ways - might soon mean new opportunities for the traveler who dares try it. Travel...has never seemed to me of greater importance, more essential, more enlightening."

-from NYTimes article "Why We Travel" by Paul Theroux
