I just asked a building’s handyman for his tallest ladder…He reappeared with a 2meter ladder with cloth covering the bottom of each leg rendering the object unstable. After ascending and descending that ladder and reconfirming my debilitating fear of heights, the toothless man holding the ladder for me said, you’re a little crazy, huh? #shanghai #onthejob

One of the most interesting parts of my trip to Indonesia was experiencing the difference between the predominantly Muslim culture of Lombok and Hindu faith in Bali. Our driver in Bali gave us a beautiful explanation of the daily offerings you see everywhere. “We put out offerings once or twice a day. In the morning and or afternoon. I put it in the car I drive. In front of our homes. Businesses. We put flowers inside baskets. Food. Anything we can eat. We thank the gods for the day of life we just had. We thank them for tomorrow. It is a simple offering but it is important to always give thanks.” #indonesia
