Robert Parker

Hello! Glad you stopped by!
My life, so far, in a few sentences:
Grew up in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York
Graduated from Washington College in Chestertown, MD
Lived in Hong Kong; Hull (Yorkshire); Williamsburg, Va.; Philadelphia; Milwaukee; Pucón, Chile.
Visited fourteen countries so far and planning to visit a lot more.
I'm interested in history, politics and political theory, music, especially Motown and soul, theater, movies, economics, books, poetry, travel, hiking, education, food & cooking, art of all sorts, photography, architecture, hiking, and most of all, people. OK I mentioned food, but ice cream deserves a special mention. And Singapore Noodles.
