In just a few short hours, I depart from a port in Ft.Lauderdale for an all-expenses paid cruise to the Western Caribbean. For the next seven days I will be completely disconnected (unless I want to pay $6.95/minute for internet access, a service in which I will not indulge).
I must confess, however, I filled my carry-on bag with seven books on tourism, the environment, and the American West. I also toted three books for my North American core class: Environmental Inequalities (Hurley), Crabgrass Frontier The (Jackson), and The New Deal (Badger). This means that while the family enjoys their light and airy novels in the sunshine, I’ll read my academic books and write a 20-30 page term paper draft. But how can you complain when you’re off of the coast of Cozumel with a piña colada in hand?
