Jane from Spain Daily is the "leader" of this tour around corners of the world. This week's theme is Modes of Transportation. After clicking on all the incredibly beautiful websites that are a part of this project and feeling increasingly jealous that I don't live in Spain or Italy or France or Japan or even the Middle East, it's difficult to even write about the subject.
I live in Los Angeles, home of the car and all the horrible stuff that goes with it. People are INTO their cars, here, despite high gas prices. They live in their cars, talk in their cars, and work in their cars. Not a day goes by that I don't see some outlandishly expensive vehicle -- a Maserati, a Lamborghini, a Ferrari. My kids play a silly game called Audi where they count how many Audis we pass.
There are car washes on just about every corner and hordes of unskilled men who make a living washing these overpriced, conspicuous modes of transportation.
As you can see, I actually don't give a damn about cars, the primary mode of transportation where I live. But this morning I'm struck by how I'd LIKE to travel.
Here are some beautiful places to visit:
