I have mentioned before how lucky I feel to have traveled to so many foreign lands and seen so many things I never expected to see. I tell you, it is one thing to read about the world, or to even see wonderfully accurate images of it, but there is nothing like the feeling of standing beside something like — say — the Taj Mahal as it soars skyward beside you. I will never forget the day I stood beside that magnificent tomb, contemplating how much love went into its creation for Mumtaz Mahal, the wife of emperor Shah Jahan, who later chose to lie there beside his beloved.

From that day to this I have believed that there is nothing more wonderful in this world than the true love shared by some men and women.
