You Can Never Find a Rickshaw When It Monsoons

In You Can Never Find a Rickshaw When It Monsoons Mo Willems captures the joys and travails of the tourist on the road. This sketchbook cum travelogue Willems takes readers on a bumpy around the world trip. The book is 90% cartoons and 10% background insights.

Willems clearly travels as I do in 2nd class open to the real experiences found in Asia and Europe. Kudos to Willems for venturing to Qufu and other cities that most tourists don’t have the time or fortitude to get to. (It can take some chutzpah to buy your own train tickets to smaller towns or figure out where to stay and eat unless you’ve been in China a while.)

I think I’d read this years ago. Nonetheless it was still funny. It’s a grade A quarantine read. Available on Hoopla.

Travel Now? Where?

This morning I caught a bit of the stock market show Squawk Box. Jim Kramer, one of the hosts, opined about the state of travel and why people aren’t traveling. After all some people aren’t scared about the virus.

That is true. I’d say I’m able to assume the risk and take precautions. I’d love a cheap airline ticket. However, Jim, just what would I do when I got to my destination. I can’t think of a museum, national park, theater or site that’s open. On top of that restaurants are closed. All the pluses of travel are shut down.

Just because something’s cheap doesn’t mean it’s worthwhile.

Which Way Challenge

The Which Way Challenge, that Cee began, has been picked up by the Alive and Trekking blogger.  The beauty of it is that it’s free form. You can include images of doors, gates, roads, streets, exits, signs, paths, waterways, you name it.
