I recently had the profound honor of journeying to Inner Mongolia, which is part of China, to visit the family of Tumen Ulzii Bayunmend, the exiled Inner Mongolian writer I have been working with all year in Ulaanbaatar. Here is footage of photos of him when he was younger, his home in Hohhot, his lovely wife, and in another profound turn of events, a candlelight vigil Inner Mongolian University students held behind Tumen's apartment building for those who died in Szechuan.

There is really a bevy of posts to come about all these images and videos I've posted lately. Transcribing from my journal is always the most time-consuming part of sharing my experience; sorry for the lag.
