Subject: Re: Travel Sounds
Hi John and fellow Ziners

Yes sounds can be very evocative as can smells! Lowering the tone somewhat from you original post, "she wore an itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polkadot bikini" will forever transport me back to Vietnam in '94, Elvis Presley singing " It 'll be a blue Xmas, without you" conjures up memories of sipping rice wine in the sweltering heat of Bali in September '98. More recently it was Oliver Shanti's 'Taichi' drifting on the warm evening air of Bagan, Myanmar.

I have never had the desire to use a video camera on vacation but envy the videographer the sometimes quite wonderful sounds which accompany the pictures.

I would be interested in hearing about the pro's and con's of traveling with a tape recorder.

Happy Canada and Independence Days to those in North America and a wonderful week to everyone everywhere. Regards from beautiful sunny Toronto.
