Evangelizing: The rules of travel

One of the things I like about traveling is that in those “non-productive” moments – such as when they force you to put your laptop/iPhone away while the plane is taking off/landing – I end up just letting my mind roam over the various reading materials I stockpile for such moments.

I always enjoy coming home and either going through my Moleskine to see what notes I’ve jotted down, or, more recently, syncing my iPhone with Evernote list with my lap top.

Here’s what I came back with this time:

Movie to see:
Withnail and I

Book to Read:
A Most Wanted Man by John le Carré

Music to Buy
Os Mutantes. A record I’ve had and seem to have lost, and now want to hear again.

S.F. Sorrow by The Pretty Things. Crucial 60s psychedelia.

The Kink Kronikles. Early Kinks comp.

Misc.
I underlined this quote from the Marquess of Queensberry Rules on boxing:

Don’t do away with combat, but create rules so that It can be waged in a reasonable fashion.

I also read about this great bartending idea of rinsing your glass with a complimentary booze prior to pouring the drink. So, for instance, if youwhen I make a margarita tonight, I will rinse my glass with Mezcal prior to pouring. You could apply the same logic to a manhattan, rinsing with a good single malt.

As always, I found tons of restaurants to visit in my travels, and I shall dutifully report upon them post haste. Watch this space.
