A new chapter is starting in my life... but I have no idea yet what it will be called, though perhaps this is always the case unless one is blessed with uncommon prescience or cursed with absolute predictability in life. I will be travelling to Latin America (via San Fran) and then back 'home' to Southeast Asia (via Dubai) over the course of 5-6 months. I hope to share (some of) my stories with you as they unfold.

Looking on. Monks at a Buddhist temple outside Hue in central Vietnam, and their bemused audience this morning.

Earlier in the morning, I happened upon the abbot at another temple, who complimented me on my fine choice of hairstyle. A nun in his party kept saying "dep lam, dep lam", i.e. looks good. The European tourist whom they seemed to be accompanying looked bemused.

Bemusement is a popular look here.
