SAN FRANCISCO - THE POET.

One of my most read stories through the years has been about a trip I took to San Francisco. This past week I got the following e-mail" "Dear Dan: Just wanted to let you know I randomly found your San Francisco page by searching for documents with the words: beach, sex, funny, baseball, and redwood. I do not really know why I was searching or why I'm writing to tell you. But I was amused by your piece and especially your comments about my fellow Marin County residents.... May you randomly stumble upon something good yourself." (signed Joe)

It certainly was an interesting way to search. Maybe I need to try it.

Just got back from a trip to New Orleans. Wow! Ate at the Commander's Palace, K-Pauls, and Cafe Du Monde. Did the French Quarter, watched the mimes at Jackson Square, and ate in the kitchen of my Aunt Jenny in Hahnville, Louisiana. What more could I ask. Maybe a story of this venture later.


SAN FRANCISCO HEART .

Nicole Savage is another good San Francisco buddy. Her San Francisco Heart is always a worthy journey. She even has added a journal which I really like.


THOMAS MERTON KENTUCKY SITE .

In my Thomas Merton site there is a photojournal of a visit by me to the Abbey of Gethsemane near New Haven, Kentucky. Check out the photographs to Thomas Merton's gravesite.


BEST NEW SITES OF THE MONTH

No Back Roads. The world is tied together with the internet. Follow the journey. Excellent!

Discover Bordeaux, France. A pleasant place to live in France. (By Aude).

Southern New Mexico Online Oh how I miss New Mexico.

Alaska's Glacier Bay Tours and Cruises. K. Chrestensen presents this site.



TRAVEL ON THE WORLD WIDE WEB.

Dan Phillips article for AmericaEconomia magazine in Chile. This article gives the history of travel on the World Wide Web. Worth studying! And it has really taken off with 60-70 hits a day.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH:


"Exile, like memory, may be a place of
hope and delusion. But there are rules
of light there and principles of darkness....
The expatriate is in search of a country,
the exile in search of a self."

Eavan Boland, Object Lessons

ANOTHER TRAVEL WRITER WHO WILL NOT BORE YOU !!!!!

Edward Abbey

"I am taken by the primeval charm and fascination of the simple mysteries: fire, building in mud, rain, sunlight, the smell of greasewood and live oak after a cloudburst, the luxury of a sleeping hound." Edward Abbey - Confessions of a Barbarian (p.125)

Edward Abbey is the author of Desert Solitaire, one of the great travel books of all time.
