Finally, after months and months of delay, here is the last episode of the Southwestern Adventure. Thanks so much for sticking with me through this trip! Hope you enjoyed the pics and the captions. I plan to follow up on these issues by exploring the downstream effects of China’s damming activity on its Southeast Asian neighbors. Especially worrying are China’s damming of the Lancang River, known as the Mekong in southeast Asia, and the Nu River, also known as the Salween.
If you have contacts at NGOs or government agencies in Southeast Asia who are working on international river issues, please let me know.

A reader in China told me that the pictures were loading really slowly so I made the pictures in this episode much smaller. Hopefully this results in a more enjoyable viewing experience. Please let me know when you have any complaints or suggestions about the site. I will always do my best to address them. I live to give.
Here’s the third episode of the Southwestern Adventure.

I thought you might appreciate the irony in the picture below. This trashed sign, lying amidst various pieces of litter on the side of a highway running along the still-mighty ( not for much longer, thanks to a series of 22 dams currently being built or planned) Dadu River (大渡河), reads : Please care for the flowers and grass, littering is strictly prohibited (请爱护花草，严禁乱扔垃圾）.
