|Greg and I raise a glass in my brother's memory |
at the Zlaty Andel hotel in Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic.

I am comfortable with strangers, you see. Indeed, sometimes it seems I am my best me among them. It has always been this way.
Below, please find images of some of the people -- known and unknown -- who made our European experience richer (or, in the case of the "Did you drop this ring?" gypsy scammers in Paris, at least more interesting!).
