I don’t know where the shame of being a tourist comes from. I’ve heard many friends in full touristic swing say that they don’t want to mix with tourists, not realizing that even though they don’t mix with them, they are just as much tourists as the others.
– Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Who can sleep while being stalked by a big, bright moon? It was hanging over the old farmhouse when I got home a little after nine o’clock, and surely that’s what woke me up again in the middle of the night. I got up and read several traveler’s tales of Spain but soon found myself harking back to my own more modest travels in Michigan.
Ever since writing that the Pictured Rocks are a must-see destination, I’ve been wondering what other people would put on a Top Ten list of Michigan attractions. If that’s too hard, what’s your #1 favorite place? And while we’re at it, what’s your #1 favorite Michigan book? If you want to divide attractions into natural and man-made or books into fiction and nonfiction, that would be interesting, too.
Anyone? Who's willing to stand up and be counted? Old Mother Moon wants to hear from you!
(But travel to the moon? Not I! No, thank you! I love earth too well.)
