Around the World in Eighty Days

You may read (hear) a little less from me in the coming days. My fall schedule, starting with the just finished Dubai/UAE stop, includes these ports of call: Dubai/UAE, Campinas/Brazil, Belo Horizonte/Brazil, Nashville TN, Moscow, Orlando, London, Berlin, Bologna/Italy, Seattle, Sydney/Australia, Taipei/Taiwan,* Birmingham/England, Durango CO, Chicago, Lagos/Nigeria, Port Harcourt/Nigeria, San Antonio, Bucharest/Romania. (*Re N5H1, my "insider" already suggests I wear a breathing mask in Taipei—a little tough to give speech in one.)
