“Visit Cape Town and history is never far from your grasp. It lingers in the air, a scent on the breeze, an explanation of circumstances that shaped the Rainbow People.

But, in many ways, it is the sense of triumph in the face of such adversity that makes the experience all the more poignant.”

-Tahir Shah, Travels With Myself

No matter whether one is flying over Newfoundland or the sea of lights that stretches from Boston to Philadelphia after nightfall, over the Arabian deserts which gleam like mother-of-pearl, over the Ruhr or the city of Frankfurt, it is as though there were no people, only the things they have made and in which they are hiding.
