bike in a madressa by tigrejones. Thanks!

Sometimes, I just want to be riding a bike through the souks of Marakesh.


Andrew Sullivan = Racist?

See what I did there? By putting a question mark at the end of my post title, I make it clear I’m just a curious fellow, and in no way insulting the character of that lovable blogger “of no party or clique.”

Of interest to me (if no one else), it appears to use a […]
