I’m back from my trip to the Algarve region of Portugal. I’ve topped up my tan and am now ready for the UK winter to roll on. But to be fair, it has been fairly mild weather in the UK this October. We enjoyed some of the hottest days of the year during the first two weeks of October. Gore Vidal was my travel companion for this trip. I read his memoir, Palimpsest. I enjoyed the trip through history as seen through Gore Vidal’s eyes. It seems like every person mentioned in the book was in some way shape or form into or into the idea of same sex sexuality. I’m talking from President Kennedy down to Vidal’s father Eugene.
