My Chile... And another marathon. Great publishing house LOM translated my non fiction book and it will soon go to print (in 2018). I spoke at LOM in Santiago and at Universidad Austral, in a beautiful city of Valdivia. I also gave two radio interviews, visited my friends in Talca and reconnected with Valparaiso. Will be back soon!

Filming in Borneo. Total destruction. Poisoned rivers. Poisonous gold mining. Palm oil plantations. Misery.
And in Jakarta, jihadi anti-Communist demonstration. As if not enough that religions here already murdered millions of left wingers, Communists, intellectuals...
Then visiting my friend in Yogyakarta - a great Indonesian Communist painter Djokopekik.
