Turkmenistan Visit: 2008-6
2010-04-08 - Long road from Ashgabad to Merv but we finally got there. The ruins were a bit underwhelming, but the site was a relief from the capital, a marble-carpeted desolation.


Yap State Visit: 1983-12
2010-04-05 - Spent a memorable week or so in Yap with my family around Xmas 1983. Memorable for the tedium, and the unmistakable feeling of being marooned on a God-forsaken speck of land somewhere in the Pacific (sounds familiar?)

No beaches worthy of that name, and chicken with rice for every single meal.

Wouldn't want to go back there (Ditto for Nauru), but I realize now that having been there gives me bragging rights of a sort-- although many people, even in the age of wikipedia, doubt me when I say that Yap does exist.
