These are the emails I've been sending back to my friends about my wanderings. Most of them were written while I was too hot, too tired or too busy, so sometimes they're a little hard to undertstand. They could do with being fixed up but I don't have time.

All the people I've written about (except for that one nutcase with the photos!) were really nice and I wouldn't hesitate to travel with any of them again, despite what you might think from my mails!

Now you can see photographic evidence to back up some of my stories. The page will probably take a while to display if you don't have a fast connection, sorry, I don't have time to work on the presentation. If you want to see some more nice photos (with much better presentation!), have a look at Dave and Ronnie's site. They travelled in some of the same areas as me and have nice photos of things I didn't get a chance to scan. My friend Thomas Lim also has some photos of places I've been. It seems he has a much better camera than me or something ;-)
