Sample text

As I gazed to the left my eyes came to rest on the Mare Magnum, which symbolized in every way our blazing acceleration into the future. With one brief sweep of my eyes I took in the broad sweep of history fully in evidence on all sides: behind me, Columbus pointing from the mists of antiquity to the as yet undiscovered New World; in front of me, the New World fully realized in all the glitter and shine of modernity. 28 • 11 Days at the Edge And between the two moved an endless stream of tourists from lands Columbus could only have imagined: Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Turkish, American, German, French, Australian, Arab, Asian, African, young, old, gay, straight, singles, couples – all combed the city with the same buoyant curiosity that carried me through the tangle of its ancient streets and the graceful curves of its modern boulevards.
