I’m alone in my friend’s apartment in Korea waiting for him to come home and laughing my teeth out. Once he gets here, it’s off to the airport. To fly to Bangkok.

Email me any time, because I’m traveling all over Asia too, and any way to combine our fresh-brine class and our laceless shoe-stomping would be fun.

Also, let’s talk Bangkok.

Comment on The Turtle & The Whore: A Downward Spiral into Bangkok’s Red-light Underworld by ilunga mpoyo http://backpackology.org/2013/08/14/shits-gettin-weird-a-downward-spiral-into-bangkoks-red-light-underworld/#comment-2113 Sun, 22 Jun 2014 02:19:38 +0000 http://backpackology.org/?p=3568#comment-2113 This was certainly not what I expected. When I got to the end I was touched by your care for the women who are in the industry. I discovered your blog today and love it so much! The writing, the pictures, the stories, they are all top notch. I thought this would be a look at perverted westerner’s exploitation of women in dire poverty but you tackled this on with compassion. Some of this was hard to read but I want to work with women and children in the industry, especially those who are slaves so I braved this. I will be following your blog from here on.

Comment on A Wok to Remember: A Foodie’s Guide to Thailand on a Budget by Poodles & Noodles: A Gastronome’s Guide to Vietnamese Food | Hanoi Youth Hostel http://backpackology.org/2013/07/16/a-wok-to-remember-a-foodies-guide-to-thailand-on-a-budget/#comment-2023 Fri, 13 Jun 2014 04:17:35 +0000 http://backpackology.org/?p=3482#comment-2023 […] PHO (VIETNAMESE NOODLE SOUP): You could say I’m not “bowled over” by Pho (pronounced fuh). It has nothing to do with the taste—the broth stewed with cow bones is hearty and delicious, and the noodles and meat are perfectly accentuated with herbs and fresh, crushed peppercorn. My problem with Pho is my blanket hatred of all noodle soups. I enjoy noodles and I enjoy soup, but when they’re placed in the same bowl, it offends me on an elemental level. […]

I’ve seen, and been awed by the rafflesia flower (in Peninsula Malaysia, where it interestingly didn’t smell of death!) but I have never come across the corpse flower. It looks terrifying!
Isn’t nature amazing!
