Latest favourite blog

Over the past several months, the "blog" I have watched with the greatest anticipation and read even when I should be preparing for class is by Jeremy Kroeker, a former high school class mate of mine, who set out on a motorcycle trip from Germany to Iran in October. He eventually made it to Iran (without the motorcycle). After wandering through Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Israel--all places I would love to visit in the middle of a Saskatchewan winter--Jeremy is now planning a return trip through North Africa. As well as being a motorcyclist, Jeremy is an exceptional photographer, and a fine (and funny!) writer. Here's a sampling:

I survived the Intifada and all I got was this lousy t-shirt

Secret police, camel meat, and unrelated photos
(from Iran)

Riding with Hisbullah (from Lebanon)

Jeremy's book, Motorcycle Therapy, is also very good.

Yeah, but I wanted to make sure!

I will definitely check out the blog and the book.
