Hey there, fellow Asia-philes! It's your old Uncle Alex. After a very long hiatus, I'm finally ready to return to blogging. A lot happened in the last year, and I just needed fewer things to deal with for a time. I'm settled in at a new job, new digs, new city and eager to return to my old interests. So I'm planning to revive the blog and commit to a regular schedule of a writing. I intend to do at least one major post a month; a nice long analytical piece. In between those, whenever my muse inspires me I will post something, shorter.
There is plenty to talk about out of Asia. For instance, Japan's new defense policies, the Trans Pacific Partnership, economic temblors in China, and of course, a mainstay in this space: North Korea!
