Seven Months, “Why Asia ?”

No Comments 21 April 2010

I am often asked “why would you go and spend seven months in Asia?”

As the middle class of China and India develop there will be a demand for cultural institutions.

On my trip I visited over 100 museums (still need to upload the videos), I was consistently impressed by the level of innovation.  Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong and Korea already have some of the best museums in the world, but the exciting part is going to be in developing India, Indonesia, Malaysia and China!  I want to be a part of it so needed to learn the landscape.Seven

I am off to Asia for a three month trip.  Leaving this Friday for travel to Northern India, Nepal, Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia and Japan.  I have set up several meetings at museums and science centers, but always open to suggestions or introductions!

During my travels I will be updating the blog with reviews and feedback from museum visits.

Please contact me if there are any must visit places!
