"Sfarjal: Creative inspiration and mental stimulation, by Ibn Ibn Battuta"
Readers of this blog who have been with me since this post back in 2008 will know that the quince—or sfarjal in Arabic—is my favorite fruit, and a very peculiar one as well.

So it came quickly to mind last year when I was looking to name a new side project: a Tumblr blog for cataloging all the intriguing, thought-provoking, disorienting, and just plain weird bits of inspiration I run across online and off.

Sfarjal is now where I stash articles, videos, commentary, photographs, music, artwork, and more—generally hewing to this blog's mission to share stories, information, and perspectives from around the globe to encourage more people to think freely and travel widely.

Ibn Ibn Battuta will continue as always, albeit without monthly reading lists for the time being. Enjoy Sfarjal.
