Why a travel sketchbook?

Keeping a journal feels unatural for me. I never know what to write or how to write it well. Drawing is a better fit. Drawing pictures of what I see unburdens the moment with words and grammer. It can just be fog on the Drakensburg Mountains, a chicken picking for worms, or a guy holding a TV in an alley—the image tells the story without the need for a beginning, middle, and end.
