Slow Boat Down the Mekong
The Mekong is a transboundary river in Southeast Asia. It is the world's 12th longest river and the longest in Asia. Its estimated length is 4,350 km, and it drains an area of 795,000 km2, discharging 457 km3 of water annually. Boats along the Mekong and its tributaries are useful shortcuts for the horrible roads, although as the road network improves river services are slowly drying up, and many of the remaining services only run in the wet season, when the Mekong floods and becomes more navigable. There are socalled slow boats and speedboats the latter being tiny lightweight craft.
Equipped with powerful motors that literally skid across the water at high speeds. Many people go from Chiang Khong in Thailand via the border town of Houai Xai down the Mekong to the marvelous city of Luang Prabang. The ride takes two days and is very scenic. Apart from that, it is a floating backpacker ghetto with no good food sold, cramped, and hot. By the second day, the novelty has worn off. Be sure to bring a good read, something soft for the wooden benches and patience. Slow boats generally stop in the village of Pakbeng for the night. Some boat packages.
Emilio Perez Artists and Oceans
I think the finest thing and the highest calling that humans produce is art. It's what people remember. It is why we put it in museums. The forces of the ocean are, you know, incredibly powerful and it is constantly in motion. The way that I relate my work to that is that because of the way that I make the paintings where I am starting off with this very, very loose application of paint. It is hard to describe but when I am actually painting, it's almost as if I am channeling something.
Cause I really disconnect. I try not to think and just let my intuition and just trust myself with the brushstrokes, with the movement, with the pallet that I end up choosing to use. And then, when I get to the point where I start to cut and sort of try to make order out of the mess or the chaos that I made when I applied the paint, it is a lot like being in the water. Or even surfing because when you are on a wave or when you are swimming.
In the ocean you have got these energies, these forces that are pushing and pulling you. You are constantly reacting to what's going on in the environment at that moment. It's very similar to when I'm cutting the painting, because I am reacting to these decisions that I have made in a very, sort of automatic, subconscious kind of way and reacting to what is there, so there is this dialog that begins between myself and the painting. Same thing for when you are in the ocean or if you are trying to surf a wave for example, you are.
