Among the greatest gifts of retirement is discretionary time, and Susanne and I are about to exercise our discretion again. We’ll be off for a cruise of the Greek Islands tomorrow, thence to Tunis to visit relatives. The Tunis landing will give us another continent to scratch off our list (Hey, it’s not very far into Africa, but it’s still Africa.), leaving only Australia and Antarctica to go. Not bad for a couple of middling professionals who never hit Europe till after the age of forty.
All that time among antiquities, goats, lamb, and feta should be a great source of inspiration. Another Salammbo anyone?
See you in a couple of weeks.
