We're back, we're safe, we're jet-lagged

E-TOWN--My wife and I are back from our honeymoon. Amazing experiences overseas, from the ancient pyramids of Afrikan Egypt to the modern Palestinan refugee camps of Asian Lebanon, which have made permanent impressions on us.

We've met astounding people in our journey, and over the next little while I'll share audio and images with you of some especially noteworthy moments, from Nubian and Scandinavian folk songs on the Nile to the music of Palestinian refugee youths at their "graduation" ceremony from a summer camp teaching them first aid and drama to traditional Lebanese--get this--extemporaneous, sung, political poems by our cab driver.
