Getting my passport renewed this morning has filled me with a yen to travel.
But I, like you, am sadly confined to my desk. Even on this beautiful sunny day, I can really only get as far as Mississippi (the street, not the state).
So in the spirit of wanting to vacate our bunker-like building and put my passport to good use, I give you a virtual trip to Switzerland. More specifically, the International Red Cross Museum in Geneva.
Inside The Travel Lab has done a fabulous job of walking readers through the museum -- from the bound, shackled figures at the entrance to the knowing inscription, "Everyone is responsible to everyone for everything."
Sure, it's not light reading, but this is certainly one way to feel transported on a Friday afternoon.
