Mission Statement and General Greetings


AWat12

Good morning, everybody!  I am an American living and working in Japan.  I studied anthropology as an undergraduate and am deeply interested in the rich diversity of humanity.  Most recently, I have been travelling frequently around the Asian continent, specifically Southeast Asia.

These travels have inspired me to research the cultures and histories of the various peoples I encounter.  These studies have then inspired me to start this website as a means of sharing my experiences with all of you.

This website will  provide information on the details of my travels as well as examine the food, languages, religions and societies I find as I happily wander around the earth.  Hope you enjoy this as much as I do!
