misc thailand...

Finally an update. I've been busy as of late and discouraged by the firewall which has blocked blogger here. I've been using sneak proxy servers, but could not post photos. Then I came to realize I should try embedding soundsliders...I can't see them, but if they don't work on your end, leave a comment.

So far, it doesn't seem to be working. But try looking here...

Anyways, I spent a few weeks on a solo backpacking trip around Thailand. I explored, riding a motorcycle anywhere I could without crashing or getting stuck in mud. I visited temples, endured twelve hour bus rides, met rad people, laughed a great deal...had a fantastic time. Now I'm in Yunnan Province, China, doing photography and group leadership for Rustic Pathways, a group that brings American teenagers across the globe for various programs. Mid-July I'll leave here and hopefully go on a backpacking trip to far Western Sichuan to explore photograph a massive annual Tibetan horse racing festival.

Dang. I'm still trying to figure this out. It's hard to access or post things with the good ole' China firewall. Here is a link to the slideshow from my hosting site...
