Update from Assam, India

Posted on December 14, 2008 at 1:00pm 5 Comments

Hello everyone:

I found my way to Tamil Nadu, India via Malaysia about 2 weeks ago, and am now near Digboi, Assam. I got a sketchy internet connection and wanted to send an update. I leave tomorrow morning (15-Dec) for In 6 days in the interior of Assam, to a place called Kazaranga; it holds the largest remaining population of tigers in the world! From there I will go to the Manas region in western Assam, and westward further to Uttarakhand for… Continue

Thailand: Day 10

Posted on November 28, 2008 at 9:02pm 2 Comments

I am still in Bangkok, and it appears that I will be for ~4 more days! Two political parties siezed Suvarnabhumi International AP three days ago, and then Don Mueang Regional AP night before last. All international flights in Thailand depart from and arrive to Suvarnabhumi AP; I was scheduled to fly to Bangalore yesterday.



The protests and occupation are at least peaceful for now. No one in the occupation has weapons firearms, but have made spear-pointed baracades in the airline… Continue

Lampang, Thailand



Hello Dear Friends:



Thailand in general is a mix of complete chaos and very kind, peaceful people. I have been treated very kindly for no reason I think other than it is their nature to do so. I met with the manager of the Thai Elephant Conservaton Centre yesterday, and learned much about the issues pertaining to domestic elephant conservation and the implications on wild elephants and conservations lands; more later with images… Continue

Hi Ron -
Are by any chance from the DeLand area? DHS class of 75 or so? I remember a Chandler who took photos for the student newspaper and yearbook back then.

Hi Ron, I remember reading your awesome update yesterday and thought I might have responded but don't see it on here. You are doing a good work! I'd like to know more of your interest in mind-body-spirit. I also would like to invite you to join my new group, Environmental Zoo where you can express your concerns, solutions, ideas, or anything else you's like to share. See you there?

Ron,

Thanks so much for the amazing demo! I have only one (yeah, right...) question: why isn't everyone doing this obvious, great way of irrigation? I guess the best ideas are the simple ones. It's just a matter of time. But, hey - it makes so much sense. If you can smell water, then it's being wasted. But, 95% of sprinkled water is wasted? Shocking!

Thanks, aso for your generosity is providing all of us with hose to do the drip watering. I can't wait to rig mine up properly. Especially since I travel! What a godsend.

I bet if you gave your class regularly, you'd have a crowd.

Regards,

Michael
