My friend Anto has most likely been to more countries than you have. I’ve been to more than many people I’ve met, and I can’t hold a candle to Anto. When I consider this, I feel a mixture of awe, jealousy, and a need to reevaluate my life. Why can’t I take off for months at a time every year to travel multiple continents? There’s obviously a bug in the way that my life is configured.
Last I heard from Anto he was in Istanbul and had just booked a flight from Cape Town to Rio by way of Dubai. It’s a beautiful thing. Respect!
I’m really loving this UAE stamp, but I’m a little annoyed that Hallmark has infiltrated over there. Arabian heritage my ass! Psyched he picked up a camera though, I guess his got stolen in Barcelona, which doesn’t make for very good pictures later.
