WORLD ARBITRAGE

"I ate the last mango in Paris,
took the last plane out of Saigon,
took the first fast boat to China
and Jimmy there's still so much to be done."- J. Buffett

Some of those "damn, this is what it's all about" moments:
At the YoHo bar in Salisburg having "Dancing Queen" come on and instantly travelers from every corner of the world are on top of the tables singing arm in arm until close in the early morning.
Being stuck on the wrong side of the river in St. Petersburg after the bridges have gone up at 4am, and with the other tired drunken souls, being forced to see the ships go by in the white night.
Over Christmas break, having just been reunited with my classmates from Duke, seeing the sun rise through a window as we board the plane in Hong Kong to go to Vietnam.
Driving through the Fijian highlands with my own private guide (because no one else showed up for this tour), local school kids waving as we go by, with the "Lonely Planet" theme song in my head.
Sitting in a cramped seat on a mini-bus of wide-eyed strangers, we drive through the Australian outback, listening to Sting and Crowded House over the speakers.
First full day in China, not understanding a damn thing anyone can say but looking like I should, walking through the chilly post-sunrise air and life in Tianamen Square.
After a day of seeing the sites in Rome, sitting around on the Spanish Steps late in the evening listening to the small group if guitarists serenade our crowd of strangers to the classic "More than words."
A chilly Swiss night in Montreaux singing "Bohemian rhapsody" in the shadow of the Freddy Mercury statue on Lake Geneva with my new Dutch friend Marielle.
Snorkeling around the underwater bungalows at our resort in Moorea, running into some new friends in the water as the sun goes down, and as I get back to our room and look through the window seeing Sonja curled up and sleeping peacefully on the bed.
What will we find on the next trip?

Those "It's a small world" moments:
Near the end of my stay in London, while having a beer at a near by pub with some classmates- eyeing a girl and she is eyeing me. Comes over to introduce herself and it is a girl from my high school class, Sheri Horowitz.
Standing on a street corner in Saigon- and as one of thousands of scooters go by, someone riding on the back of one yells out my name. Turns out to be my Fuqua classmate Rakesh.
Standing in the immigration line to leave Capetown, I see my co-worker Barbie standing a few people in front of me.
Checking in for my flight to the Bahamas, my friend from middle school Mark Engel is a few people behind me with his family going to the islands as well.
Missing my friend Eleanor's wedding since I'm heading off to Rio, but meeting up with her in Buenos Aires on her honeymoon.

"What lies in the future is a mystery to us all
No one can predict the wheel of fortune as it falls
There may come a time when I see that I've been wrong
But for now this is my song..."- K. Carpenter
