Biographical Info:

Many things interest me about Asia. It's the people, the food, the history, the arts, and Buddhism. I like to roam about either on foot or by bike or by train or by scooter. City life intrigues me. I am drawn to the attractions of cities but also to the countryside and its slower pace of life and proximity to nature.
