The Flying Carpet
The Flying Carpet is our gathering place to swap tales, exchange rants, discuss plans, dream about future travels. Here you'll find stories from our hard-working editors, staff, contributors, and friends, ranging from brief anecdotes and lengthy journeys to thoughtful essays on life, the world, and of course, travel. Find a space, and let the Flying Carpet take you away.

Executive Editor Larry Habegger tells stories, talks about travel writing, and ruminates on current events in Larry's Corner. This week, in Mohammed’s Shirt, Larry finds that the process of haggling is more rewarding than the purchase. Have an opinion? Tell him what you think at email@example.com.
