Dear Friends, I Took This Photo…Vincent

 

Though the last born of 11, Vincent Dixon has lived a life of many firsts.  So no surprise (okay maybe a little) when he laid on us the family plans to see the world.  What has been a nice surprise is how he has kept us richly informed through words and pictures.  For example, yesterday’s:  “There are about ten different classes of Indian trains – the long haul buses are pretty much the same – and there are wikipedia articles to help you work out what is what.  For the trains, if you have air conditioning then 1st or 2nd class is just a question of comfort.  We were traveling non-ac on our first trip.  As I said, the seats were filthy when we got on the train, the toilets were unspeakable, and it was a 14-hour trip. I loved it. Vincent”.
