Got a lot of catching up to do…

by in Uncategorized

Jesus, I haven’t posted to this blog for over three months? That’s pretty bad.

So what has kept me so busy? In October/November I took a work trip to Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan. It was lovely. Then in December/January I went on vacation to Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand. Again, very lovely.

For whatever reason, I am completely unable to blog while actually on a trip, making me one of the least effective “travel bloggers” out there. I am incredibly envious of those who can post a summary (with pictures!) at the end of each day, but I am lazy, hate lugging around a laptop, and would rather spend the evening drinking beer or sleeping. So now I have this gigantic backlog of photo processing/blogging. Which isn’t helped by our new obsession with “Dexter” (thank you, Netflix!)

So once I get done processing all the photos I took (2,700 in Central Asia and 1,500 in Southeast Asia) I’ll get around to posting them and perhaps writing a few words. And hopefully that will get done before 2014 rolls around.

OK, here is one of me at the Registan in Samarkand, Uzbekistan:

    Particularly look forward to your impressions of Turkmenistan as my local Amnesty International Group in the UK are campaigning for political prisoners there and I’ve been trying to research it with little success.

    In fact we are planning a fundraising quiz for March and I was planning to do a little leaflet about Turkmenistan and Amnesty’s work in such places to give out – so any striking images of revolving golden statues of former presidents-for-life would be greatly appreciated.

    You might find this account of a trip to N Korea interesting:


    as one would expect nothing at all appears to have changed except perhaps some of the slogans on the billboards since you published your photos.
