Incidents of Mirror-Travel in the Yucatan, and other destinations

"Through the windshield the road stabbed the horizon, 
causing it to bleed a sunny incadescence."

"One couldnt help feeling that this was a ride on a knife
covered with solar blood."

"Time is devoid of objects when one displaces all destinations"

"The steady hiss of the air-conditioner in the rented Dodge Dart might have been the voice of Eecath - the god of Thought and Wind."

"Timelessness is found in the lapsed moments of perception, in the common pause that breaks apart into a sandstorm of pauses." (our plane looped)

maybe we head for The hypothetical continent of Cathaysia (1971)

or Atlantis
