Places I've Been

I've included below a list of the places I've been and links to relevant posts in this blog. I visited the places without links before I started blogging, but I will eventually go back and fill in some of the gaps--just as soon as I am caught up on current travels (if that ever happens)!

If you know of a good book that ties into one of these posts, please mention it and give a brief description in the comments section for that post.  Click on the appropriate post below and it will take you to that entry.
