    Luis kept telling us about the differences between life in Havana and that of the rural countryside where his extended family lived However every manner of transportation we could think of to see the rest of the country was problematic Flying was way too expensive for poor college students and the train was notoriously unreliable So we had the brilliant idea of renting a car which was easy enough however when we opened the car door we realized it was a manual transmission None of us had any idea how to drive a stick shift at the time so that is how I learned Driving across Cuba in a beat up Suzuki Sidekick with no working blinkers and only one headlight was an unforgettable experience Where do you stay when you are on these trips It depends In Mexico we usually relied on youth hostels which are essentially cheap rooms for college students and budget travelers So we would pay 10 or so a night for a bunk in a large room and you generally have a shared shower area Now this sounds somewhat rustic and I suppose it is but the fantastic part is you end up meeting people from all over the world who you will never forget On the other hand in Cuba there is a serious lack of accommodations in rural areas so we would stay with individual families who rented out rooms This was fantastic because it meant we had the opportunity to meet real people and see how they lived which is difficult in an authoritarian country How was your trip this past summer Well a few years back my wife mentioned that she had never seen the Grand Canyon So I thought if we re going to see the Grand Canyon we should see as much of the country as possible Last June we took off and drove from Fort Lauderdale to see our families in North Carolina and Michigan and then headed west visiting Mount Rushmore Badlands Yellowstone Zion Arches and Grand Canyon National Parks We camped out the majority of the time pulling a tiny two person tent out of our MINI Cooper which was already filled to the brim It sounds like a line out of some cheesy novel but we spent our nights underneath the stars The highlight of the trip was the time we spent in Yellowstone where we got incredibly lucky and found a campsite in the park for the July Fourth weekend Campsites are usually booked out so to say we were lucky is kind of an understatement They kept warning us about bears but at that point I was so excited to be there that that didn t deter me at all Anyway we got to celebrate Independence Day in one of the most beautiful national parks in the country around people who were just as appreciative of the experience as we were If you re going somewhere in America why don t you just

    and I are still working on that and there s a fish that s pretty common where I work and it s also eating the corals and we re working on that as well When you re not taking pictures of the ecosystem or marine biology do you take pictures of people I tend not to take pictures of people I prefer to take pictures of organisms and nature An example of this is last year I challenged myself to take a picture in nature every day of the year I did it and it was a very rewarding activity because it forced me to really get out there and look at interactions around the natural world What s your favorite picture that you ve ever taken That a very difficult question to answer but I guess off the top of my head I can think of several My favorite pictures have to do with light and shadow Actually thinking about it right now there is this picture of two birds that I m very partial to They were in a very nice pattern and with a little bit of luck I got a very nice shot of them And I have a picture of a nudibranch which is a sea slug that is basically unknown to science and I didn t know that when I took the picture But I found out when I started asking around and I learned that no one has identified the species So that was very interesting What type of camera do you use to take your pictures Right now I have a Nikon D5200 DSLR It s kind of an amateurish camera but the equipment is only the tool So don t dismiss the fact that you can get really amazing shots with simple equipment because even I have taken strong images with camera phones How have your endeavors in photography enriched your teaching experience I like to have my students experience things in the field whether it s an interaction between organisms or some type of stratification in terms of their zonation So I use my pictures very regularly in class because I find that it s engaging and it provides a visual context to the things we re talking about In what other ways do you use your photography I use photography to collect data One of the challenges with working underwater is the time limitation because you only have a certain amount of air If you can take pictures that you can later analyze it makes your data collecting more efficient So what I ve been doing over a long period time are photo quadrats These are grids that are laid out and they allow you to survey a benthic community with pretty good resolution And then when I have the time and it takes a lot of time you can see the amount of coral cover you have or the other types of organisms you have in the area

    sun never sets so we went there and experienced that and I liked it It was different You re traveling experiences are enviable and most students know of your travels to Germany How did that start As a young boy living in Toronto during the 60s I was surrounded by families who relocated from countries in Europe that were affected by World War II I had friends whose parents came from these countries My oldest friend whom I ve know since I was five his mother was from a small town in Austria and his father was from Vienna therefore I had this link to people who spoke German at very young age I heard their stories and I had a good understanding of Europe before I ever visited I had all versions of the European experience So I guess you could say as a child I developed a link to Germany What was your first time traveling alone to Germany like My friend and I were in Belgium and I told him I wanted to go to Germany His parents said No because he was Jewish so I decided to take a train from Mechelen Belgium to Munich On the train ride I was sitting beside some young Germans who had just visited Britain We started to talk and they told me that the British were mean to them because they thought that they were Nazis It was funny because I told them that that was 30 or 40 years ago maybe their parents weren t even Nazis Anyway they were really sweet and offered me a place to stay and something to eat They were very nice and I will never forget that experience How and why did you start traveling to Germany every summer Well I traveled there a couple of times I went twice when I was in undergrad and I went once in law school At the end of my law school I went to the London School of Economics and I studied there for a year and a quarter which was very significant because while writing one of my papers a lady who worked in the archives suggested a man named Jörg Friedrich He helped me with my paper and I remember at the end of the talk I said to him Wow you really know your stuff Friedrich is a popular and controversial German author whose writings are usually critical of Germany But for some reason he decided one day to write about how other countries affected Germany called The Fire His book sold hundreds of thousands of copies so he gained a lot of attention and recognition So I started to meet a lot of people in Germany prominent people from lawyers to deans to ex communists It really attracted me to the country and gave me the type of insight that helps me to teach with detail and clarity I just kept going back and learning more and meeting better people

    have the alternative taking a car If it s raining we usually avoid it but if it s nice out we usually ride What s the coolest place that you ve gone to while riding Ferriss I would say that we ve been to lot of really cool places I would say the Canadian Rockies was one of the best places we ve been to Going along the ice fields parkway toward Jasper was amazing And wouldn t you say Southern Utah and the Grand Canyon Alford Yeah Utah is all rocks right Oh let s go look at some rocks right It turns out that Bryce Canyon National Park Zion National Park Canyon Lands Arches National Park all of this stuff is in Utah and as long as you don t find the need to drink alcohol it s a very interesting state What made you interested in studying motorcycle culture Alford Well first of all it was a way to be a scholar and still do fun stuff We have been editors for the Journal of Motorcycle Studies for 10 years and then we published a book in 2008 called Motorcycle and we have another one coming out this spring on the relation of bicycles and motorcycles Ferriss But I think initially it was going to popular culture conferences That s how it started It was a way to combine something that we enjoy doing but also learn more about it and then to meet other scholars who are also interested in it and then looking at how it intersects with popular culture with history with design engineering The ways that you could gain entry into other fields was to us very interesting Alford In 2009 we had a conference put on by the University of Trier in Germany The American Studies department there put on a conference based on our book and it was really cool They had artwork and stuff that some Germans did and we had lectures and showed movies and stuff That was fun to do Ferriss We ve met people from all over the world who ride motorcycles and study them Through your motorcycle culture research what were your major findings Alford I think one of them is I wouldn t call it negative but one of them is sort of corrective to try through scholarship to get out of people s heads the idea that people who ride motorcycles are these unwashed bearded smelly uneducated potentially violent outlaws First of all there are 7 million motorcyclists in the U S and that is an extreme minority but of course because they re very attractive to the media and because we have this whole history since 1954 of popular culture sort of buying into that with The Wild One and all of the films that follow that it s just pervasive And we wanted to sort of emphasize these gender issues There have always been female motorcyclists and they can ride bikes too

    coming back a few different times you find that you actually develop friendships and they re just the same as anybody else I made a wrongful assumption that the male population wasn t going to open up to me as much as the female population but I was wrong in that As it turns out they considered me a third gender that s what they call it where I was in uniform and even though I was female they didn t consider me like they would their local females The men were willing to open up to me even though I had assumed that they wouldn t do it the same as they would to the men So we actually found that they didn t find me as threatening as our men and that was able to reduce some of the conflict and resolve some things Culturally there are differences and they don t treat women the same way They re respectful of the women and I don t think we always understand that We have an American perspective of others that we put on them This is a society that is very family based They care about their children and they do care about their women It s just they have different social norms some of it s religion based and they re trying to protect the women from outsiders But being female I was actually able to go in and engage with the women as well while all of our men were not allowed to do that Did your experience in Afghanistan impact your decision to go into instructing Absolutely It sure did I had taught before going to Afghanistan at the university level at Florida State University and Seminole State College and I had also done training for the government and things like that But after going to Afghanistan I wanted to share with people the education side of it and encourage them in that direction mostly because the girls and the women I came across couldn t even get an education in Afghanistan One group of girls I had met had been burnt with acid for trying to go to a school This didn t happen often but there were parents who would dress their little girls up like little boys up until puberty so they could get some form of education Then suddenly puberty hits and they have to take on the role of being in the house and not being really able to leave But the fact that we have the opportunities over here for education to me is inspiring and I wanted to share that because people take education for granted How does this influence your teaching I think I m able to understand multiple perspectives of things In life we always take on the perspective from where we come from Once you understand that people are generally all the same across different cultures and different societies we understand how to bring people
