Peter never understood people's obsession with travel. How could anyone think that they are exposing themselves to the wider world, he thought, when the entire time they shelter themselves with credit cards, sunscreen, insurance, and a ticket home? That type of travel was only for people to take photos of themselves smiling in front of well documented monuments in the rain, sunshine, snow, surrounded by strangers all doing the same, quickly moving from one icon to another superimposing themselves on history, altering memory, all the while seeing less, and knowing less than what has already been documented historically and academically.
