From hash browns and French toast to smoked mackerel and creamed burdock root, there was something for every taste and degree of immersion into Japan. Thus fortified, we boarded our buses and set out to explore the cultural...

Field Report

Wednesday, October 9, 2013 - Quito, Ecuador: Wherever you were coming from, or where your flight originated, it’s a safe bet that when your plane made its descent into Quito, it didn’t have to descend as far as it originally climbed. This is because Quito sits at 9,350 feet, on the lower slopes of the volcano Pichincha. If you were near a window during that descent, your first image of Quito was of a whitewashed colonial-style city with few tall buildings, sprawling across...

Monday, December 19, 2011 - Chennai (Madras), India: Time to hit the ground running! Arriving into the Chennai Airport, one has no other option than to immediately give in and acclimate to the beautiful organized chaos that is INDIA. We convened at the gorgeous Taj Coromandel Hotel, before embarking on a tour of Chennai that included the National Art Gallery, introducing us to bronze statues of Hindu gods Pavarti, Shiva, Ganish, created in 10AD. From there we visited...
