I can't find a link but I like the blog which compared Bitcoin to Rai stones.
The reason is it helps to explain how Bitcoin works without getting into the technical "weeds".
The reality is you NEVER send Bitcoins anywhere and you NEVER have them either. The Bitcoins never "move" (much like Rai stones). The block chain simply records changes in ownership. The Rai stones never moved either. By consensus people changed ownership of the stones. Whatever the consensus of locals determines was the owner, was the owner.
Your wallet simply is a mechanism to prove ownership of coins and allows you to change ownership of coins you currently own. The block chain is merely a historical record of ownership changes. The network of miners is a fair method to determine consensus in a dispute (double spend).
Kinda interesting that Bitcoin is a new digital incarnation of a very old form of currency.
