About @Swept Away

44 years old • Male • Asian Studies lecturer

Grateful 3rd world explorer, who obeys the call of the universe in a journey that defies the laws of economics and biology.

Beyond culture, race, politics, and identity, I celebrate my humanity with the paradox of filth and wisdom, leather and saffron robes, conformity and egotism in an ever evolving reality.

  • Hobbies:

    Poetry and Song writing, Teaching (Yes, my job is my hobby), Viewing my FB albums, Taking photos of myself, and of course Traveling on a shoestring made in China.
