Travels & Tet

Well once again it's been ages since I've posted on here. That's partially due to the fact that I've done a bunch of traveling over the last six weeks, and also partially since I've been really busy writing for money, so I haven't felt very inclined to use words for free.

I've also been regularly consumed by deep despair over the future of the US given the complete abomination that just became president. I just don't know how to stay positive when the new administration clearly has zero concern for facts, science, the climate, women, minorities and so many other issues. I've never felt so upset as an American.

Anyway, instead of harping on that topic I'm going to share a bunch of pictures from my recent travels, as well my most recent work. The Tet holiday is a few days away and I'm getting ready to head to Sri Lanka for 10 days, so hopefully I'll be back with some posts after that.

Here are four links to my latest journalism work for Mongabay, the South China Morning Post and Saigoneer;
