The trip recounted in this “traveler's tale” took place between 21 January and 13 February 2006. For her solicitation of my services as ambassador as well as lecturer on behalf of the American Geographical Society, I thank our Executive Director, Mary Lynne Bird. AGS President Jerome E. Dobson heard about my writing up the experience through William Woods and encouraged me to pursue publication in the Geographical Review. The evaluation process called for me to rethink key issues and how to deal with them narratively, for which I thank all concerned. For her transformation of the manuscript from handwritten scrawl to digital text, I am indebted to Kari Pries. Maureen McCallum Garvie looked at what I had to say through her critical literary lens; any infelicities that remain are my responsibility alone. The staff of the ags Travel Program, Education Manager Lauren Cummings above all, kept track (and me straight) of myriad logistics. On several occasions during the trip I found myself thinking of the geography classes I took from two memorable teachers, Miss Marks and Mr. Dewar, whose lessons when I was a schoolboy back in Glasgow truly did open up the world.
