CapAsia Reflections

From January to April 2008 I had the opportunity to be part of Ball State University's CapAsia trip. This was not a vacation by a long shot, but rather an in depth study of planning and architecture in Asia. The main focus of this fifth trip to Asia was to explore the people's recovery process from the devastating tsunami that occurred on December 26, 2004. We visited Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, India, and Singapore.
