Postcards from Travel Near and Far by Jia-Rui

Dear ——–,

This is my first online postcard. I’m writing to you in the middle of the night; I hope this isn’t the blog equivalent of drunk-dialing. I hope you’ll enjoy this continual feed of postmarked vignettes. It’s a kind of travel blog: short missives that can actually fit on a paper postcard, with vignettes that hopefully amuse and give food for thought. I’ll try to send these messages on location. But, as with regular postcards, sometimes I’ll write them after I get home. (Home is Los Angeles, Calif., so that’s the first postmark on this blog.) Looking forward to traveling with you!

I'm a journalist based in Los Angeles who has always said that writing postcards for a living would be a dream job. The posts -- short enough to fit on an actual postcard -- chronicle recent travels near and far. I could blab on about being inspired by epistolary novels, the short poems of Emily Dickinson, and the New Yorker's "Talk of the Town" pieces, but I'll just say that I'm aiming to give you a sense of flavor of a place without boring you to death. Wish you were here!
