Thinking about my next adventure and its destination. I’m desperately missing Japan and Russia, but there is still so much uncharted territory that it seems unwise to return to either, yet. Decisions!

I can, however, tell you with complete certainty that I will NOT be going to Dubai. In a turn of wonderful fortune and thanks to the massive effort put forth by his friends, colleagues, and many of you fine peeps Diz is finally returning home from Dubai where he was unjustly held for weeks. I hope this ordeal has shed enough light on the shite state of human rights in that region to make for some big changes, soon.

And while Dubai attempts damage control, I’ll be thinking about the dirty yet enthralling Shanghai skyline. This may very well be my next destination.
