Black Mirror’s mind-reading tech could be here sooner than you think

by Deena Zaidi @ VentureBeat

Our minds may no longer be a safe haven for secrets. Scientists are working toward building mind-reading algorithms that could potentially decode our innermost thoughts through memories that act as a database. For most, this probably sounds like an episode of Netflix’s hit series Black Mirror. The dystopian sci-fi thriller recently showcased a chilling episode called […]

Authenticity Sold Here (some assembly required)

by Jason Rivera @ Journal - shade market

Authentic is a word that gets thrown around a lot when discussing Thai food. I had been given the advice that the most authentic places to eat were on the streets in Thailand. I heeded that, and it's true that you can find every Thai dish imaginable on a roadside or in an alley somewhere in the country. It is often really tasty. But has anyone else noticed how much MSG some of those cute old women scoop into their soups?

Aqaba, Jordan: Diving the Red Sea

One of the most valuable aspects of travel – aside from meeting wonderful people in every single country – is what it teaches you about geography. Here, on my first journey to the Middle East, I find myself gobsmacked by the proximity of the four countries surrounding Aqaba, at the southern tip of Jordan, where I’ve been the last three days. The photos below are from two days of diving in the Red Sea, which I failed to part. Day one was a shore dive — my first! — and looking out from the dive site, you could scan across the...

Tasting Culture: Chiang Mai Fresh Markets

by Jason Rivera @ Journal - shade market

As a westerner, there is no denying it, some of the markets are dirty and far from aesthetically pleasing.  It can be hard to ignore the pools of filthy water, the flies and the acrid smells that leap into your nostrils unexpectedly.  But make no mistake, these markets supply the most chic restaurants down to the humble street vendors. They are also home to some of the best, most authentic Thai food in Chiang Mai. The cooks here aren't slinging hash to tourists, they cook for the people working hard beside them, people who know good Thai food

Our next stop was Gili Trawangan, aka “the party island” of the 3 tiny spots off the coast of Lombok that at closer inspection of the map turn out to be actual land masses.  Gili Trawangan is specifically ...

Part 4 – The City Of Contrasts

by TravelGal @ Cambodia & Vietnam (2015) – TravelGal's Notes

The title line, shamelessly borrowed from an old Soviet movie, probably best explains today’s Saigon.  Each one of the 19 districts comprising the city is different, and often even moving around the corner in the same area you find yourself on a totally different planet. The best example of such dichotomy can be seen between the former China town area of Cholon in District 5, and the downtown old Saigon in District 1.  Despite the name, the old part of town boasts modern steel and glass sky-scrapers, Versace boutiques, and fancy colonial-era hotels, renovated to the brand-spanking-new condition.  Cholon means ...

Turned out, Saigon was not so easy to say good bye to.

Judging by their sound, the band could use a bit of practice, but preferably not at our expense.  We were not planned to leave before 9, so this loud and out-of-tune wake-up call was not very welcome, to put it mildly. Our first reaction on hearing the first loud brass ...

The plan for our first full day in Saigon was simple – explore the downtown and find The Lunch Lady, made famous by Anthony Bourden, who filmed the Vietnam episode of his “No Reservations” TV show at her humble street stall back in 2009. With a population of around 8 million people and divided into 19 districts, Saigon is a huge spread-out city, too big to explore in its entirety. Like with every big metropolis, though, you really don’t want to explore all of it.  Most attractions worth seeing are located in Districts 1, 3 and 5, and as we ...

Shade Market Cooking: Condiments Part 1

by Jason Rivera @ Journal - shade market

When I sit down at a restaurant, whether it's fine dining or a diner, I want a bottle of hot sauce close to me.  In Thailand, they feel my struggle.  Places that serve great food and those that serve up mediocrity will almost always have condiments set at each table. It is actually a sign of a quality restaurant if their table side seasonings look fresh and abundant.  Our favorite spot for Khao Ka Muu, braised pork shank over rice, is a great example. The traditional garnishes of raw whole chiles, raw whole garlic cloves and scallions are usually crisp and unblemished.  The same can't be said for their competition.

Part 2 – Welcome to Saigon

by TravelGal @ Cambodia & Vietnam (2015) – TravelGal's Notes

In addition to hard beds and narrow buildings, several other things stand out in Saigon to an observant eye.  The main one is definitely the mad traffic.  The number of scooters, mopeds and small motorbikes on the roads, carrying families, luggage, boxes, gas canisters, cartons and bags full of goods exceeds anything even Bangkok can boast of.  Together with cars, taxis and buses they move in a seemingly random, yet well choreographed chaos, rarely observing road signs or street lights.  Saigon traffic rules were well summarised on a T-shirt we saw in one of the souvenir shops: “Green – you ...

Shade Market Cooking: Roasted Celery Root Salad

by shade market @ Journal - shade market

Coming from America, one of the great things about cooking in Turkey is the familiarity of the ingredients. The seasons for growing are very similar here: tomatoes in the summer, peas in the spring and pumpkin in the fall. The difference is the approach to using ingredients. At the morning markets in Istanbul, groups of men gather around tables to eat piles of raw vegetables, cheese and chunks of fluffy bread for breakfast. This is a country where veggies are at the heart of meals, and seasonal eating is a rule.

While having lunch, I was aware of how the food differed from what I might normally eat: how it tasted, how it smelled, what emotions it triggered. While digesting I could feel my body working, absorbing nutrients. When something didn't agree with me, I could feel my body’s disdain.

Shade Market Cooking: Fresh Tofu

Shade Market Cooking: Fresh Tofu

by Jason Rivera @ Journal - shade market

For years I completely ignored tofu.  It just never excited me.  In my eyes, it was white-ish, bland soy mush.  How ignorant of me!  But, in all fairness, we are not taught to appreciate tofu in the States.  As we mention in our post on soy milk, the mass produced "tofu" that's common in the United States is not real tofu.  It's just soy protein concentrate pressed into a cake.  Real tofu is a whole soy product, including most of the fiber and healthy fats in the soy bean.  Real tofu isn't bland.  It has a slightly sour flavor from the vinegar used to curdle the soy milk.  Real tofu has a vegetal taste from the skin of the legume.  It has a toothsome quality akin to queso fresco or haloumi.  Tofu's porous nature allows it to soak up sauces and flavorful oils. I will continue to ignore the mass produced soy-food that is found in supermarkets, instead opting for fresh tofu at asian markets.  Or, better yet, home-made tofu.

It was a relief seeing a Roman alphabet upon arrival in Saigon (now called Ho Chi Minh City, but all of the locals still refer to it as Saigon). In terms of eating, Roman alphabets come in very handy; if you know a few Vietnamese dishes you want to try, it’s much easier to spot who serves what. Vendors make it very apparent as to what dishes they serve.

We finally got to the market early enough to watch a young man help prepare our favorite laap.  The dish laap is a salad of minced meat, in the same sense that steak tartare is a salad.  But it is more than that.  Laap is a dish of celebration.  It's a verb, a communal activity.  Laap is a rhythm passed down for centuries, pounded out with blades, flesh and blood.  Or, as Mr. Yoot, one of the proprietors of Ton Payom's laap stand, put it, "This is a northern food."  The modest presentation of laap belies its rich flavor and history.

Part 1 – Good Morning, Vietnam!

by TravelGal @ Cambodia & Vietnam (2015) – TravelGal's Notes

Somehow, this beat-up phrase seemed to be the best fitting beginning to describe the start of our Vietnam trip.  Mostly because we did arrive in Ho Chi Mingh City (also known as Saigon, and often abbreviated to HCMC) in the morning. The 9-hour flight from Munich with Thai Airways first brought us to Bangkok for a layover on our way to Saigon.   After all the rave reviews I heard from people about the airline, I was looking forward to experience the excellent service everybody was referring to, but ended up being rather disappointed.  Maybe my expectations were too high, or ...

Hospitality in Saigon

Hospitality in Saigon

by Jason Rivera @ Journal - shade market

"Arm! Arm!" a Vietnamese waitress instructed me, as she shoved my messenger bag into my chest and wrapped my arm around it.  All around Saigon's touristy district 1, visitors can be witnessed hugging their backpacks to their chests to prevent theft.  Our waitress was helping protect our belongings, which I appreciate, but I'm not going to walk around clutching my purse.  Some questions were raised: where are all of these Vietnamese scoundrels?  How and when will they strike? 

To Kill a Clucking Bird

by Jason Rivera @ Journal - shade market

"Jay-zon", a few seconds of silence, "Jay-zon" again, a raspy yet kind voice called out.  The moon was high, and I was lightly dreaming when I heard my accented name. Groggily, I got up to see what Rocky Bittika wanted.  Rocky is a stocky, strong Karen man and one of the full-time residents at PunPun.  Imagine him as the Burmese "Wolverine", a gruff, good-hearted outdoorsman. Over the past few days, we had bonded over gardening, badminton, smoking cigarettes, and table tennis.  That night, Rocky had something on his mind.  In two days, he would be leaving the farm.  He was en route to the Burmese border to celebrate the ceasefire between a faction of Karen rebels and the Burmese military.  He wanted a grand send off.  "Maybe I will get a fish, or a chicken...or something like that.  We can kill it, and you can cook it,” Rocky said to me, as we puffed some of his aromatic tobacco and papaya leaf blend in the moonlight.  I was honored that he chose me as the chef.  Killing the animal is an important link in the food chain, and being a city boy, I'd never experienced it.  I was excited. Anxiety welled up in my chest.  Fresh blood would flow.  By firelight we would sacrifice a chicken, in honor of Rocky, and feast on its flesh.  I was also tired, and when our meeting was over I stumbled to bed, my head met the pillow, and forgot about our tete a tete.

Farmer's Markets, Chiang Mai

Farmer's Markets, Chiang Mai

by shade market @ Journal - shade market

With the abundant street markets downtown and farms lining the hills, we naively assumed that the meat and produce in Chiang Mai came from independent farmers. But, large agribusinesses, such as CP, maintain monopolies on agricultural production; much like Monsanto. This type of farming requires large amounts of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. The produce itself is then brought to market by middle men, who purchase from farms and transport it to villages and cities for sale. Farmers are left with no say on how their crops are distributed or how much they should be sold for. It’s harder than we thought to find organic produce and food that comes directly from the source.  The bustling markets of Chiang Mai lost some of their magic when we realized that we had been misinformed. But, the best tasting food is found at the street markets and in grungy kitchens. So, how can we eat traditional Thai food while considering sustainability?

Travel Fatigue After 11 Months on the Road

by noreply@blogger.com (Outlander Abroad) @ Outlander Abroad

I wrote this out while hiding in a much-needed private room in Chengdu, China, when the little frustrations of daily travel life were beginning to take their toll on my mental sanity.  This was just prior to some very necessary days with some familiar faces from the States and three blissfully relaxing weeks in Bali with my Portuguese pirate.  It bears sharing in its honesty.  Burnout happens, and at that point I had to just put my head down and charged forward, until I reached the "break" I had put out there for myself.  In another situation, perhaps I would have just stopped and gone straight to visit friends, or return to a more familiar, comfortable destination and camp out there for a while.

**********

Mere days after I hit the eleven-month anniversary of my travels, as I found myself collapsing onto my fourth bed in a week's time, I felt absolutely exhausted, grouchy, and overwhelmed at the thought of making the regular series of decisions that I have to tackle on a regular basis:  Where will my next stop be?  How will I get there? How much longer will I be in this city? What should I do tomorrow? Where should I find food?  

While this journey has been an absolute dream of mine, and while I'm truly enjoying every step of the way, it bears acknowledgement that feelings of burnout were likely to occur at some point along the way, given the duration of my travels.  I had already experienced something akin to homesickness, a longing for a space of my own, familiarity, a routine - without wanting to give up traveling or return home.  But after a few days of rest and relaxation in Northern Thailand, I forged ahead, racing through Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia, with a very brief stop back in Bangkok as I made my way towards Hong Kong and perhaps my most intimidating destination of my entire trip:  mainland China.  I had been so good about forcing myself to stop and stay in one place early on in my travels - spending a full three weeks in my own apartment in Buenos Aires, followed by nearly five weeks based out of Aveiro, Portugal, very shortly thereafter.  Since then, I have hardly stayed in one place for a week.  In fact, I can probably count on one hand the number of times I actually succeeded in doing so, most being prior to my run through the aforementioned countries.  

At this point I do have some rest and relaxation ahead, but it's still a little under three weeks away, when I have a full three plus weeks of beach time in Indonesia.  That doesn't sound too far off, but that is also the entirety of the duration I have remaining here in China.  While it would be tempting to just stay in one place a few extra days and get in some necessary recovery time, I don't want to miss the opportunity to see some of the incredible sites that I came all the way to China to see and experience.  Which is truly the conundrum of any traveler, especially the long term one - how to balance seeing and doing and experiencing with sanity-saving days off?


I'm going to try and push through for the next few weeks - I'm still resolved to see the terra-cotta warriors in Xi'an, spend time with my friend Amy in Shanghai, and visit the Great Wall and the Forbidden City in Beijing.  But perhaps I don't have to overextend myself and do too much else.  I have to try not to overly pack my days full, or I risk collapsing into a terrible mood that's some horrific hybrid of hanger and exhaustion.  

**********

Looking back, I did overextend myself, nearly reaching a breaking point a couple of stops later in Zhangye.  But that's also where I found some sort of stubborn resolve and fought back.  I began my mental recovery when I set foot in Shanghai, a more comfortable city for a Westerner, and a place where I would stay with a friend from home.  I found another familiar face in Beijing, and that was enough to carry me through, to end my stay in China on a positive note, before my mid-trip vacation in Indonesia.  But, more on those things to come...
