On the move - as always, in and around Burma, Thailand, and S and SE Asia. 

But: the lady and I will be returning to the US for graduate work very soon. Here, looking back, looking forward, much movement to come. 

Note - this began as a 2012 year-end thing, then it was for Chinese New Year, then Burmese New Year/Thingyan, and now here we are. So, emphasis on 2012 with some cheating here and there. Enjoy and be nice.

E(a)rnest Greene goes soft-rock, I like. Shades of Destroyer’s latest?

Is there a good reason I shouldn’t find this actually quite compelling?
