Bangkok: Soi Lizard King

Friday, January 16th, 2009

The reception here in SE Asia has been fantastic.  I spoke last night to a completely full house at the Siam Society.  I opened with a discussion of illegal wildlife trade statistics but I needn’t have bothered.  I stopped for a beer before my talk and looked out the window to see a beggar walking the street with a baby elephant in tow.  On my way to the talk I passed the Shark’s Fin restaurant, with a gigantic fin in the window.  It is easy to consider exploitation of wildlife a fringe issue, and then you come to a center of biodiversity like Thailand and it is the elephant in the room.

This one is coming up next Thursday at Times in Kuala Lumpur.  I just got the poster for it and thought I would put it up.

Here’s a cool poster created by MPH bookstore, Kuala Lumpur for my upcoming reading this Sunday.  This morning I had a great interview with PK and Sara, two hysterically funny KL-based DJs who have to get up way too early in the morning. PK apologized for the hour (I arrived at 0 dark thirty) and though there was no breakfast for me in this breakfast show we had a terrific time.  Upcoming are a reading at MPH Mid Valley BookstoreTimes Bookstore Pavillion, Academy of Sciences Malaysia, NTV7, TraXX FM… and that’s just Malaysia.  Next, I’m off to Thailand and Singapore… I am very grateful to TRAFFIC SE Asia, Academy of Sciences Malaysia, MPH, Times, and others for inviting me to Malaysia.
