365 days, week #41






A week in Thailand. Visiting and talking with contract farmers. Learning from Thai and Laotian sugar farmers, academics, NGOs, and other international and local lawyers working on environmental and human rights issues. A crucial exchange of stories.  Meals in a sacred shine, which once served as a communist base.  So much sticky rice, som tam (papaya salad), and Thai iced tea!  Long car rides in the dark.  Avoiding the floods.  A press conference in Bangkok. An afternoon wandering off the Siam exit on BTS.

  1. Thanks. Admittedly, I was a bit of a curmudgeon - I didn't want to go because I have so much to do right now - but now, looking back at the week, it was the breather I needed.
