Now or never really says it all. We were both working stiffs who had saved up a few dollars. Life was excellent, good jobs, great friends, the DC urban life. But something was missing. After a long walk in the park, we realized we craved the last great adventure. We yearned to see the world, Asia in particular, before globalization enveloped our ever-shrinking planet.
After two trips to Shanghai we realized we didn't have much time. Shanghai looks like New York; Taipei looks like New York; Hong Kong looks like New York; Singapore looks like a cleaned up New York. We hope to seek out the culture, food, sights, history and people of Asia before MTV, McDonalds and Coca Cola arrives, or completely overruns it. This Web site documents our adventure. Hopefully we are not too late.
