How wonderful to have been published by Essence. I'm sure it was a wonderful article. Do you remember the year? I want to look it up. I might even have it. Yes, by all means travel writing is definitely a way to document history and our lives. I bring a journal for all my travels and while chronicling my day-to-day activities, I also refer to historical and cultural aspects. As genealogists we appreciate moreso the need to document our lives so that our ancestors won't have to dig as deep as we are doing now.
I became familiar with Monique Wells by reading George's interview on the Writers Forum so the name rang a bell in Elaine's notice. I purchased an excellent used copy of Strangers in the Village, the book you refer to in your posting, but have yet to crack it open. I will definitely get to reading it. It will make excellent summer reading.
