The Expat

Paul Bowles, expatriate writer, composer and traveler who lived 52 years in Tangier, Morocco.

“He did not think of himself as a tourist; he was a traveler. The difference is partly one of time, he would explain. Whereas the tourist generally hurries back home at the end of a few weeks or months, the traveler, belonging no more to one place than to the next, moves slowly, over periods of years, from one part of the earth to another.”
Paul Bowles, The Sheltering Sky
