I was born with a huge sense of curiosity which has been the driving force for my entire life. It has led me to new musics, new foods, new cultures, new lands. And that is what this blog is about, the discovery of the new, the different, the compelling. I hope you will join me here from time to time—sharing these things is my biggest joy. And let me hear from you, let me know what you like, or dislike! Thanks for dropping by. Mike, the American in the Salento!
