Dermot's Travel Diary

Argentina & Chile- The Big Eat
It's hot here in Santiago. Really hot. It is physically draining to walk down the street. The sun beats down with an intensity I've never encountered before.

The Bridge at Remagen
Eva Bell

Cruising down the Rhine from Bonn to Koblenz on a lazy afternoon, the twin towers of Remagen bridge rose like black ghosts through the treetops on the west bank, making me sit up with a start.
Remembering Hotels, Good and Bad
Walli F. Leff

Once I had an exceptional experience in a hotel: I slept on an absolutely perfect mattress. I know that now you expect me to tell you where that mattress was. I would if I could, but, for the life of me, I just can’t remember.

California Scheming
James Campion 9.25.21
What the Golden State Recall Election Tells Us About National Politics

Californians, it turns out, are not so keen on someone who would eliminate the mask mandates put in place by the current administration, and then make it more difficult to fully vaccinate the state.
Women in Bondage
James Campion

Afghanistan - The Big Fail
James Campion 8.20.21

The entire farce of the War on Terror – a never-ending money pit of violence, lies – was set up for bad endings.

Happiness Manifesto
Julia Reynolds
Today I went walking down to Parangha Beach, Mykonos, Greece for a chilly swim
Charles Robert Watts 1941-2021
James Campion 9
Watts did things in the Stones so miraculous that it was mostly overlooked for nearly six decades. Not overlooked as much as ignored.
Politicians Lies, Truth and Opinions
James Morford
Must politicians lie? Niccolo Machiavelli thought if politicians did not lie they would surely fail because lying was fundamental to politics. Not to lie ignored reality
