Since I travel wuite a bit with my mundane job, I have begun a Rihla.  A
Rihla is a chronicle of one's travel or life.  A famous Rihla is "The
Travels of ibn Battuta", a 14th cent muslim from Tangier.  In that light,
each time I event in another kingdom, or even go to a meeting, I will place
a note, in persona, for that occurrence.  It's a cool idea, but I am afraid
it would be a little boring.
