The following stories are all from my travels through over sixty
some countries over the last forty+ years. Many of them are from Emails, Faxes,
Journals, letters and some recalled from oral history. I've divided them
by regions of the world and indicated approximate dates. The names have not
been changed to protect anyone but I've generally used only first names or
initials. Traveling around the globe has convinced me that "truth is indeed stranger than
fiction". I hope you enjoy them.
