The battlefield is immense here and would take a few days to take it all in. We just did part of the drive and I thought I would share these two key spots of the battle.
Never seem more learned than the people you are with. Wear your learning like a pocket watch and keep it hidden. Do not pull it out to count the hours, but give the time when you are asked. --- Lord Chesterfield
