I’ve never been a fan of globalisation.
I like the differences in people and places.
I like to get off the plane and know I’m in a foreign country.
Years ago, we were going to emigrate to Australia.
I’d just seen Nicolas Roeg’s film ‘Walkabout’.
Australia looked like the most foreign, exotic country on earth.
So my wife and I went to see for ourselves.
We flew over Europe.
France, Germany, Italy, the Renaissance and centuries of turbulent history.
We flew over the Middle East.
We could see oil wells blazing below and imagine men in flowing robes leading camel trains.
We flew over India.
