It has been harder to maintain this blog than I imagined it would be. I am eager to share my experiences, but as any traveller knows, it is impossible to capture the entirety of each moment; to describe or document every sensation, memory, interaction, connection. It is difficult to determine what would be most interesting to those who read these words, especially in this age of excessive information. And I will admit I have been both disappointed and relieved by the poor internet access in most areas. While it is harder to keep in touch or up to date, it has been a refreshing withdrawal from technology to intimate journal spaces filled with my handwriting and drawings. I am always open to suggestions, and please be patient as return to the past to highlight the journey.
