introductions from East Asia

Hi, my name is Rich, and I am a recently graduated college student traveling between jobs. In the past, I’ve backpacked around Europe and South America, but I’ve never been to East Asia (only India). I have always been fascinated by this part of the world, so when my friend Andy and I had some time off between finishing our previous job and starting our new one, we decided to embark on a month-long journey around East Asia. During the past two weeks, we have seen some of the poorest and most densely populated places on earth in Bangladesh (150 million people in a country the size of Wisconsin), and some of the most beautiful spots on the planet in Thailand (mountainous islands covered with tropical rainforests and surrounded by white sand beaches and turquoise water). Now we’re just beginning the second half of our trip to China and Cambodia. In China, we’ll visit the three most prominent cities: Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong. In Cambodia, we’ll see the ancient ruins at Angkor Wat before finally heading back to the States at the end of July.  Stay tuned…
