While everyone is building up their chocolate egg collection this time of year and here in Hong Kong, desperately trying to keep them from melting in the heat and humidity, I was dreaming of something entirely different. An Easter Pavlova. And since in this weather, it would be culinary suicide for me to even attempt […]

The sea is still quiet in the morning; slowly waking up from its busy night of dreaming among the waves and the pull of the moon. We walk to the beach from Mkoko House, our eyes heavy with sleep, our moods picking up the pace; excited for our day on water. The dhow is hovering […]

We woke up before the results were in. We spent our morning in Vietnam refreshing the Guardian’s page again and again, watching the US electoral college votes go up excruciatingly slowly and punishingly red. Then it became more red and finally all red. And like what seems to be happening way to often this year, […]
