Putting myself out there

Fieldwork is an isolating experience. Although I am constantly surrounded by others as I seek to interact with and learn from them, I am always aware of my outside status, exaggerated by frequent note-taking which keeps me alert, but somehow separate from the spontaneity of the present.

I am writing often, but only for myself, ideas destined eventually for my supervisors and few others. To start communicating more widely I decided to resuccitate my old blog from travels in China so I can keep in contact with others on the outside and get into the habit of sharing my ideas.
