Well, I’m in Laos now. I have been for 9 days, in fact. For those of you that checked in to see what’s been going on, sorry for the delay. I did, in fact, write a post while I was in Pochentong Airport in Phnom Penh, which I was going to add to when I got here. However, I had a little bit of trouble retrieving it when I discovered in Vientiane that the motor in my hard drive had somehow died on the flight over.
Seeing as how I shoot digital, not being able to use my computer poses a few problems for me. Problems, irritations, maddening, head scratching, cursing, foot stomping… well, you get the idea. So, I spent the majority of my first week getting my computer problems figured out and solved, finding, renting and moving into a house, getting a nice new LCD that I can optimize images on, and in general just getting situated and figuring out my way around town. Now, after encountering a few difficulties, and spending quite a bit of time and money, I’m ready to go.
