Take Me Home......
WOW! Nothing else to say! No, truly a brilliant description of your last country, NCY definitely being a country in its own right. Your evocative description took me right there, I could taste the cool white wine, see the multihued sunsets, smell the coffee and hear the green man saying walk. Also a great summation of your joint and several skills, now even more finely chiselled.Welcome home....to the future!

This adventure is coming to a close.
Appreciate what you have done and dream of the future travels. NYC seems the perfect last stop. An amazing city, indeed! Music fills the air, people rushing here and there....the energy... the vibe, it can't be explained. Can't wait to read about your adventures in Taiwan.

Good to see you blogging again
It is bad when work interferes with travel and writing. Amazing photos. Perserverance is the key to finding an appropriate beach setting.

Good camp journal
I love this camp journal. Pretty pics and honest words. Kudos~! Sorry to hear about the deforestation. I am a Malaysian native and i know what you're talking about. Breaks my heart all the time. I also camp in the jungle almost every month. It's been a long time since i go to Cameron Highlands and it's chilly weather. Some advice from a camper to another though. Malaysia is very rainy. Therefore always bring a good, light flysheet (tarpaulin) when you camp. If possible get a 10 feet by 12 feet or similar, this is large enough to live under and very light and small to carry in an back pack. Put up your half the tent - entrance side, under the flysheet . This is because when it rains (and assume it will rain everyday), you will still have a living area/dry area to do activities and to sit around. Just imagine if you didn't have the gazebo/shelter and it was raining straight for 5-6 hours. You can't cook in your tent, right? And staying in tent for hours on end won't be a good experience unless you're sleeping in it. Just a tip though, but great job there. Love reading this. Gimme a holler by mail if you wanna join in my monthly camping. Cheers, Aditya Veeraksana Veerak.

mentawai
Hi, I was very amused to read you blog, I'm from the UK and have been living in Padang for the past 13 years, I'm an English teacher in muslim university and have opened my own orphanage for street kids. Your experiences with the local people is all too familiar, it has taken me many years figure out the culture and how things work. If you ever come back to Padang or have any friends that plan to come here send me an e mail, I'm not a guide hehe, but I know the culture and the people inside out from years of experience and would be happy to help/advise fellow travellers :)

Hi!
Hello there, Sorry not to reply sooner, we have been totally off the blogging scene. But reading your comments about the Mentawai islands has reminded me of how amazing and crazy those times were. 13 years in Padang, wow, and what great work you have been doing there. If we ever return (which I know we would love to) then we will be in contact with you, thank you for the kind offer. Hannah

where are the names of those islands?
hey! I found your story quite interesting and I am thinking about going there. Could you tell me what the names of those islands are? Thanks so much in advance. Lilly

Sorry didn't reply
Hi there, So sorry we didn't reply have been completely out of he blogging loop. The islands are part of the mentawai archipelago, Siberut is the main and largest/most populated island. Masalot is much harder to get to...you have to brave the likes of Mas and Corne! Did you already travel there? Hope your adventures were as wonderful as ours, Hannah

PSB receipt
Actually, it is supposed to be perfectly permissable to travel in China on the PSB receipt. I've done it. What you have to do is attach a picture to the receipt and have that picture and the receipt red-stamped at the PSB.

Great blog!
Really enjoyed the blog. It reminded me so much of my time in the area. I had pretty much the same thoughts as you. Arequipa was my favourite city in SA. Thought I'd never get back up the Colca canyon! happy travels!
5th June 2011

We loved our time at the Colca Canyon
We didn't take the hike you did but what a fantastic area. We were lucky enough to see 7 condors on the day we went. Amazing beauty. Your blog has brought back some wonderful memories.
