Grime and Despair in the Middle East
      What follows are journal entries during my trip through the Middle East. The time is framed on both sides by two of the most traumatic incidents I have ever had traveling:
          1-Having everything stolen by a pickpocket at a soccer game in Istanbul
          2-Having all my film destroyed by airport security in Israel
      But I don't describe either incident here! I may save it for later. I still get worked up in a lather just thinking about it.
      I only hope it isn't boring for you. I have edited it to try and not make it so, and because I don't have any photos I have resorted to other, less impressive visual aids.
