Two Weeks and Four Talks in the Delta, Sept. 2008

What a fortnight! Southern hospitality in the land of cotton, the blues, and Chinese grocery stores. I got to visit several stores and see many of the small towns that I knew well by name. I had a sense of deja vu from all the research I had done for writing Chopsticks in the Land of Cotton, but it was still worthwhile to actually be there and see the remnants of the past as vividly sensed by seeing the empty shells of formerly active and vibrant grocery stores now deserted and crumbling.
