It's summer, folks travel, if anyone finds themselves passing through the Richmond, VA area:

Exhibit: Poe in Paris
June 23, 2013 - September 8, 2013
Poe Museum
1914 East Main Street Richmond VA
Poe Museum

(The museum is small, maybe not a destination, but interesting enough to be included in an itinerary if you are passionate about the man and his works.)

From the website


"Even during his lifetime, Poe was a celebrity in
France--a country he would never visit. Soon after his death in 1849,
his works were translated by leading French writers like Charles
Baudelaire and Stephan Mallarme, and his works were illustrated by the
most important French artists from Dore to Manet. It is largely due to
the French people's promotion of Poe's works at a time when the author
and his works had been dismissed by American scholars, that Poe's works
are help in such high esteem today. The Poe Museum's new exhibit "Poe in
Paris" will explore Poe's presence in mid-nineteenth century Paris.
Visitors will see rare editions of Baudelaire's translations of Poe's
works as well as portraits of Poe by Manet. The exhibit is included with
the price of general admission."

Hey Hans. Long time!

Oh, and as I watched him on the stage
My hands were clenched in fists of rage.
