travelling, and we need to talk about sex

Travelling around the world, Alice and her team further an international network for the Easy Town Project. Travelling with them are the past, personal demons, prejudice and unwittingly the issue of sex.

‘(…) we can continue to whine about the state of the world, or we can employ our imagination and explore how to do better.’

from book 2/1, travelling, Australia

Yesterday, most of the teams were treated to a visit to the Sydney Zoo. Neither Alice nor him were allowed to go due to security concerns. Instead they met with some local officials and afterwards with a group of craftspeople.
As if on cue, Lydia, head of the Australia Team, said: ‘But zoos have their use. They help to save animals by making people love them.’
‘Good point,’ George said and cut into his boiled egg.
Devery looked doubtful while peeling a banana for his muesli, saying: ‘I loved the animals I saw on TV, on playing cards or in books. I doubt I needed to see them caged. Though smells … you only get those in zoos. And smells are something special.’
Jack was briefly distracted by the arrival of Andy who sat down next to Adeola across the table. But Andy ignored him.
Jack relaxed and continued to butter his toast while listening again.
George was talking. ‘— was this big turtle in the aquarium. And I swear, it looked at me. I mean, straight in the eyes as if it was greeting me and imparting some deep, deep wisdom.’
‘It often seems as if animals have great wisdom,’ Kahu, from the New Zealand Team, remarked.
‘Is that why you studied oceanography?’ Robyn teased. ‘So you can find their wisdom?’
Kahu raised her eyebrows: ‘I don’t think they would regard me as worthy enough to hear their wisdom. No, I studied oceanography so we humans can learn how not to destroy the oceans.’
Robyn rolled her eyes. ‘Look Kahu, we all want the same. Couldn’t you at least pretend that making the occasional joke is healthy.’
Kahu smiled a little lopsidedly and countered: ‘Happily, if and when the jokes get better.’

‘‘Because it proves a point you made earlier. There is a lot of insecurity involved in beauty.’
‘True,’ Jack conceded reluctantly.
‘And insecurity keeps people from enjoying their life, from making rational decisions, from enjoying the company of others. Besides, maintaining a certain image, eats up a lot of lifetime.’’

The travelling team takes off from New York.

But Alice isn’t happy to be on this handshaking mission for the Easy Town Project.

Her meeting with the property mogul Clive Stodd only adds to her grumpiness, and Tom’s nagging doesn’t help.

‘I walked myself right into your sex talk, didn’t I?’ Tom groaned, nearly bumping into another urn.

No one knew what to expect from the short visit to Otaon, an ancient, influential and rich kingdom in the Middle East.
Of course, it would be very hot due to the desert climate, and there would be many princes thanks to the extensive royal family.

‘Historians say that a free-spirited princess brought this about. However, it is forbidden to tell the story, because it might inspire young people to make up their own laws.’
Jazz chuckled. ‘But you know the story?’
‘You can laugh or I can tell you the story of Princess Marlana and her guards in black.’’

This is one of the most delightful stages on the journey, and despite some drawbacks, Alice has a very good time. But not everyone is happy about that.

[note] If you are prepared to read some spoilers, this is probably the best chapter to get an idea of what the series is about.

‘He was good looking enough, for a white guy and someone your age.’
Alice smiled a little and shook her head. ‘It wasn’t attractiveness. More that here is a free mind. A mind with a million options or worlds even.’
