More Kapuscinski

Following Steve's lead, here's another quote from Ryszard Kapuscinski's Travels with Herodotus:

"A journey, after all, neither begins in the instant we set out, nor ends when we have reached our doorstep once again. It starts much earlier and is really never over, because the film of memory continues running on inside of us long after we have come to a physical standstill. Indeed, there exists something like a contagion of travel, and the disease is essentially incurable."
