"In many respects the ancient towns haven’t changed since classical Alexandria. You pass little shops sunk in the walls of serpentine lanes, markets with stalls selling everything, smells of cooking and tanned leather, proprietors shilling passers-by, buy guaraches, cookware, cebollas, tapestries. You find the same wares in Walmart, but not the life, not the vigor, the connection to millennia receding backward." (12/28/10)
