Travelog Plugs

Since it looks like I'll be going nowhere next week during my time off work, not even - if this frigid weather keeps up - into The City to pound the pavement at Manhattan-based employment agencies, I find myself more enamored lately of folks with the means to travel and the eloquence to report on their unfamiliar surroundings. Two travel journals I've found fascinating today are by Bob Harris, who reviews his visit to New Zealand; and Sean Penn, who's gone back to Iraq in search of truth and a good lamb chop, and reports for the San Francisco Chronicle here and here.
