Since my flight out of the USA is only some hours from now, I am just at this moment taking the big step and advertising this little blog to the world. So as this post will be at the top for most people's first visit, let me say welcome, and remind you that the way this works is that the newest posts go to the top. So you should read from the bottom up if you want the full effect, especially since the first post after (before) this one is a saga. Or don't, and ruin the whole damn thing.
Until asia, enjoy!
