Into the Shadows

Barcelona, Spain

“The physical aspect of travel is, for me, the least interesting; what really draws me is the prospect of stepping out of the daylight of everything I know, into the shadows of what I don’t know, and may never know… a trip has been really successful if I come back sounding strange even to myself; if, in some sense, I never come back at all, but remain up at night unsettled by what I’ve seen.”

Pico Iyer

(Note: The guy in the picture is not some random street performer. It’s my study abroad friend Felix the Gato! He let me try swinging those things, but I can’t say I was very spectacular. Go, Felix the Gato, go!)
