Even when there's no traffic (clearly, the
"city that never sleeps" is the
one I currently live in, not the one
I just left), you still have to stop
at all those red lights.

This is the church of St. Anthony, in Padua.
His remains are here, but you can
see his vocal cords, on display in a reliquary.
(Why didn't they decay with the rest
of his body? Supposedly because he was
such a great orator.)

An old boat that was washed up on the
beach at Skansbukta (bukta = bay in
Norwegian). This is also the place where
some of us took a "polar plunge,"
which means what you think it does—and,
yes, that water was cold!

I hunkered down as low as I could get
in a Zodiak to capture this kittiwake coming
in for a perfect two-point landing.

Longyearbyen doesn't just seem like the end
—or I guess that would be the top—
of the world. For a big-city (the one that's
5,581 km away) girl like me, it
was both strange and wonderful, though I'd
probably go stir-crazy in 3 days.

This 5-month-old kangaroo was one of the
young animals brought to our office
last July by the nice folks from the Columbus Zoo.
They named her Mrs. Wolowitz (a character on TV?)
and kept her safe and cozy inside her very own
fleece-lined denim pouch. Sweet!
