Four years ago today I had the great good fortune to be on assignment in Mandalay as part of This Day of Change. The project documented what the world did on the day the United States inaugurated Barack Obama – a globally significant change of government no matter how you feel about the the guy in [...]
Photos from my continuing project on the Rio Grande. You can see more in the scrolling gallery on the front of my site.
File under: Better late than never This was in the Winter 2011 issue of Gastronomica magazine, a wonderfully produced and thoughtful publication about food, in all its permutations. Thought you might like it. If you do (or even if you only think you do), go get yourself a copy.
Working on a site update, and came across this little piece of not-so-long-ago history from the Banglamphu District in Bangkok. Of course, these days, it might be a little difficult to eat on the street in the City of Angels, as much of it is under water.

Up to 30 percent of those bombs did not detonate, and they remain in the Laotian soil [...]
