In other words, Bangkok is unique and so is its food.” – Leela Punyaratabandhu

Eat interesting food. Dig some interesting people. Have an adventure. Be careful. Come back and you’re going to see your country differently, you’re going to see your president differently, no matter who it is. Music, culture, food, water. Your showers will become shorter. You’re going to get a sense of what globalization looks like.” – Henry Rollins

Did she want a second career? Was it about earning money? Or was it art? And she said “None of those. I want photography to be serious in my life.” It would be like someone wanting music, like piano playing, to be a richer, deeper, and maybe even harder experience.” – Sam Abell

26. “Ho Chi Minh City is crowded, noisy, untidy and chaotic. I miss the orderly life of suburban America and the comfort of my apartment and my truck when I’m here, but when I get back in the USA I miss the craziness of Ho Chi Minh City or Bangkok.” – Doug Rice

196. “I think it is immensely difficult to get the U.S. interested in non-U.S. topics.
