I know you were on a long trip recently. (What can I say? “The private is public now, isn’t it wonderful?” – Andy Warhol.) Just clue in an innocent reader: was the most interesting place you went?

Truth is, it”d take me a long time to think that through.
Here’s one that comes to mind that I can easily illustrate with photographs: the Amazon.
On the way back up (or down?) river to Iquitos, Peru, my guide took me to this weird kind of zoo. It was just a cabin where two unenergetic guys were sitting around. They had some weak, old seeming animals around.
They had some good birds.
They asked me if I wanted to hold the sloth, but he seemed to have enough problems.
