My friend John Blackburn, a Scottish socialist, took this photo of me & his brother Felix in London during my first trip to Europe in 1974. I had saved for years for that trip & was nearly 30-years-old. From London, I moved on to France where I haunted the museums, & then to Portugal where I witnessed, photographed, & marched with the Portuguese revolution. A sense of internationalism is in my DNA & I only haven’t done more travel because that DNA was born working class & hasn’t always had the money.

Thank you to John for sending me this photo.
