Checking Out

After a whirlwind of a first week in Hong Kong, I'm officially going off the grid for the next 16 days.  I will be spending a week in Myanmar/Burma and then onto Bhutan where I'm hoping to absorb some extra happiness through osmosis (lame joke, but they are allegedly the happiest people in the world).

I'm really not exaggerating when I say that less than a year ago, I had never heard of either of these countries.  I should be embarrassed by this but it also kind of makes me proud in that I'm expanding my horizons and bit by bit chipping away at my ignorance of the world beyond my immediate surroundings.

There's apparently not even internet in these places, which will be both refreshing and frightening as technology withdrawal can manifest itself in very real ways.  I will be sure to return with many significant revelations, obtuse metaphors, and other random musings to share.

Signing off for now!
