“I couldn’t understand why my productivity went down when I had deliberately made more time available to write. Then I realized it was because I wasn’t flying as much. Before, I’d sit on a plane and pull out a computer and start writing a speech or whatever. And on most planes, there are no plugs, so I’d open up my computer and wrote until the battery died. Because I had this pressure of knowing the battery would die, I wrote monumental amounts in short periods of time.

I stopped over in Madrid en route to Sarajevo. I took a lot of pics of signage — I think it’s a great window into a city’s cultural aesthetics. I also took pics of my favorite tapas — jamon and gambas — as well as the famous hanging hams of the Museo de Jamon. You haven’t lived if you haven’t tried Jamon Serrano.
