This book primarily recounts the author's experiences of living and working as a university professor in Copenhagen (11/67-11/68), Tehran (9/77-2/79), Athens (2/79-8/79), Beirut (9/79-7/81), Bahrain (9/85-7/96), and Botswana (8/96-8/10). Topics relevant to living abroad are discussed in the form of Conversations, allowing opportunity to ramble to interesting, but semi-related historical facts or human-interest anecdotes. The in-depth observations and poignant conclusions often reflect the reported current events as lived-through rather than gleaned from unreliable news media. Cultural mores in foreign countries, including exposure to different religious beliefs, are practical concerns when living as an expatriate in developing countries. The author's experiences in international travel, from castles and cathedrals in Europe to wild animal safaris in southern Africa, are meant to entertain the seasoned traveler, who has already shared these experiences, as well as the armchair tourist, who can enjoy this activity vicariously. While most of the book recalls events and personal experiences, some sociopolitical stances have necessarily been taken. Attempt is always made to present facts leading to the author's opinion. Motivation to write this book, however, was to share the author's international experiences, whether exciting or mundane.
