I loved reading your experience hiking the 5 sisters! I will be traveling to Scotland and hiking them in June and it was neat to hear your experience. Would you be willing to share you knowledge of the area with me? We have a rental car that we were hoping to park at the end of the hike but are not sure how we are going to get back to the Eastern end since we want to hike from East to West. Do you know if there is any kind of public transportation that could take us back to where the hike begins? And what does parking look like there? Is it pretty marked and easy to navigate where to go?

Kislovodsk 2009
Hello, I just found this blog post while searching for information on what Kislovodsk is like these days. I was a student there in 1995-6 and am planning a visit back, but haven't been since then. I am trying to plan my trip and am not sure what kinds of things I will be able to get there and what might be beneficial to bring. Do you think you would be able to help give me a more specific idea about this? You may send me an email if you like, I would certainly appreciate it!

What a fascinating journey! I'm so impressed that your dad did this once and can't believe he did it five times! I know you cherish these emails chronicalling his pilgrimage. Thanks for sharing with the rest of us.

Anti-Semitism in Germany?
Not so much, I think. The great majority of the Germans living today were born after the war, and don't feel any more tied to that era than you do. But you may recall the Palestinian attack on Israeli athletes in the Munich Olympics, or that in the 80's, the Libyans bombed a disco in West Berlin frequented by Americans. The threat to Jewish monuments and exhibitions isn't from Germans, these days.

The Great Flood of 1966
The structures on the Ponte Vecchio look a mix of medieval and modern, sort of like the reconstructed housing on the Römerplatz in Frankfurt. I remember the Great Flood because Uncle Bob and Aunt Josephine were stationed in Germany at that time, had planned ahead a vacation to Florence which turned out to be just after the Flood. They went anyway. Aunt Jo liked to tell everybody who would listen that they were the first people in after the Flood. I've always wondered how she escaped being shot as a looter. Or just shot.

Michener's rap against flamenco in his "Iberia" is that it's been corrupted into a tourist show everywhere. Still, it's something you wouldn't see on a normal Saturday night in Arlington. So how authentic was the dancing, in your friend's opinion? Was the flamenco guitar as good, say, as Manitas de Plata? And was the flamenco singing their usual semi-rythmic shouting? Sorry, my Spain will always be the North. Love that gaita, bodhran (borrowed from the Irish), and hurdy-gurdy music!
