Bali, The Philippines, Home and BRAZIL!!!

I won't be leaving Korea for another 3 months, but I'm excited that I'll soon be traveling again, and finally to another one of my dream destinations: Salvador Bahia, Brazil!

I bought the ticket 2 days ago. I'll be arriving in Bahia on January 24th, just in time to get set up before joining the carnival that kicks off a week later. My return ticket is for June 16th (just in case), but I still plan to stay in Brazil for 3 months and try to get back to the US via 2 month's travel (hopefully by boat) through the Caribbean.

I just finished my final Korean busy season, so it's smooth sailing from here on out. I celebrated no longer needing my alarm clock by checking out I & I Djangdan Sound System, my friends Kim Ban Jang's (of Windy City) and Francois's dub project in Seoul last night. Good music and good people always amount to a good time for me.

Speaking of good music, Windy City just released their third CD, Countryman's Vibration. I had an irie time at the concert/release party a few weekends ago, and I recommend picking up the CD (and not just because they thank me in the liner notes!).

It's been a while since I've blogged... I meant to do a piece on one of my favorite nights in Korea - attending Francois and Jae Yeon's wedding. It was truly a Beautiful 8-hour experience featuring artistic photography (a slide show of the couple projected onto a building across the street) and talented musicians that began on a rooftop and ended at a cool after hours spot.

Hopefully I'll be able to do it justice with a proper write-up after I get a few more chapters under my belt, but I'm currently behind schedule on the book. So if you don't see anything here for the next 3 months, just know that I am diligently working on the book, and look forward to the photos and entries from Bali (11/30-12/28), The Philippines (12/29-1/11), Charleston (1/16-1/23) and Bahia (1/24-?) that should start appearing in December.

PS - Any links, advice, suggestions or recommendations on the above destinations will be greatly appreciated. Also, scroll down for a description of busy season and/or videos Windy City.
