Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, all foes to true understanding. Likewise tolerance, or broad, wholesome charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in our little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.
-Mark Twain

I tucked my gloves into my helmet and stood by the bike looking up and down the country road and across the field of green wheat wondering who was going to help me this time, and what it would lead to. I did not doubt that help would come and with it most probably some unexpected twist in my fortune. It had taken years to achieve that measure of confidence and calm, and as I waited I allowed myself some pleasure in knowing it.
