David Alfaro Siqueiros

A lot of the joy of travel comes from exposure to new ideas and the unknown.

There’s a new and excellent photography museum in Mexico City.  While there, I met a young photographer, Alex Fernandez.  He introduced me to Siqueiros.

David Alfaro Siqueiros was a fiery Marxist who joined the Mexican Revolution Army when he was 18.  Later he became a major realist painter and muralist who blended art and politics.  While working in LA, Jackson Pollock was a student of his.

Since the beginning, I've had to avoid writing about the downside of travel in order to sell more than 100 articles. Just because something negative happened doesn't mean your trip was ruined. But tell that to publishers who are into 5-star cruise and tropical beach fantasies. I want to tell what happened on my way to the beach, and it may not have been all that pleasant. My number one rule of the road is...today's disaster is tomorrow's great story. My travel experiences have appeared in about twenty magazines and newspapers. I've been in all 50 states more than once and more than 50 countries. Ruth and I love to travel internationally--Japan, Canada, China, Argentina, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, etc. Within the next 2 years we will have visited all of the European countries. But our favorite destination is Australia. Ruth and I have been there 9 times. I've written a book about Australia's Outback, ALONE NEAR ALICE, which is available through both Amazon & Barnes & Noble. My first fictional work, MOVING FORWARD, GETTING NOWHERE, has recently been posted on Amazon. It's a contemporary, hopefully funny re-telling of The Odyssey. View all posts by roadsrus
