A month of gifts, day 18: The Gift of Travel

The thing is, once you've traveled beyond your own comfortable corner of the world, you will never be the same again. And that's a good thing. 

(The pictures are from my trip to what was then the Soviet Union. It was 1987, I was about to start my senior year in high school, and I got to see some really amazing things.)
