I spent a month slow-travelling through Southeast Asia’s broken places. My tales of losses, gains, and high-powered automatic rifles amid the chaos.
It’s my first-time ever in Asia, and I’m a little homesick. This is a new feeling for me, but it’s been a long time since I’ve been somewhere so utterly foreign.

I was supposed to be home by now. Instead, I changed my ticket and delayed my return home by two months. Even then, five months just isn’t enough time.
