this week i

flew to cox's bazar, biman a pixellated turkish airlines logo.  roving vendors successfully sold sand-fried pani puri, less luck with 4x4s



sketched hokusai's blue period.  west africans, middle americans, south asians decorate vehicles best, groundhog day wins among stay up late scenes

 skimmed sailing against the wind: boats and boatmen of bangladesh by trygve bolstad


read the complete persepolis by marjane sartrapi.  the word "iran" was derived from "ayryana vaejo," which means "the origin of the aryans"
