This zine is about my travels in three empire states: Japan, China and Mongolia. Of course, it’s also partial: it’s my trip, it’s what I saw and thought and experienced. So while it's about the stuff I mention, it is also about me: it can’t not be, as everything we write reflects who we are. So there's some identity musings in here too, plus a bit on dark tourism. And some fun stuff too.
