The Excitement of Writing

WORLDWIDE | Monday, 20 Jun 2011 | Views [380]

The Excitement of Writing For more than a month now this blog has suffered a bit of neglect. The reason isn't purely laziness... but maybe a lack of spark? That excitement that you just want to write down everything so you'll never forget it. More as ... Read more >

A Long Overdue Post

WORLDWIDE | Monday, 25 Apr 2011 | Views [332] | Comments [1]

A Long Overdue Post Presently writing this on the sleeper bus, rosie is asleep next to me and has been for five hours or so. I think it was the pig intestines at the bus station that might be keeping me up. But at least it's allowed me some time to ... Read more >

Laos New Year

WORLDWIDE | Monday, 25 Apr 2011 | Views [398]

Laos New Year Laos new year is the passover from Aries in to Picies or something, but seemingly it was a week long pissup and waterfight. We went out waterproof- well kind of. On the first day we were in luang prabang it was water everywhere, but breakfast ... Read more >

Little Miss Lao Sunshine

WORLDWIDE | Monday, 25 Apr 2011 | Views [381]

Little Miss Lao Sunshine Our bus to udomxai was decisively lazy and had the habit of not wanting to start. On stopping, a few Laos men and I, and counterintuitively the bus driver, had to hop out and give the bus enough velocity to start in second or ... Read more >

Chiang Mai to Laos

WORLDWIDE | Sunday, 24 Apr 2011 | Views [395]

We left chiang mai on the Monday morning regretfully and sorrowfully leaving becca, with whom we travelled for a week. It's funny how time elongates itself out here. A week with someone is far longer than it sounds- all 1/4200th of my expected lifetime-... Read more >
