Nomadic Notes
A weekly newsletter of great travel reads and news by James Clark from Nomadic Notes.

Where I'm At
Greetings from Saigon, where life in semi-lockdown continues.
No new blog posts this week as I have been working on other projects. I did some site admin (like cleaning up broken links) and other things that take away creative time (like being on hold to a bank for 2 hours with no resolution). I will post a blog next week to keep the site ticking over.
I posted some articles on Living In Asia about Future Vientiane and the Forest City urban development in Malaysia.
Having all this time with no outside distractions has brought forward another project that has been in the proverbial “to do” basket, and I will announce that next week when it is ready.
