I’m (finally) posting from Male, the capital of the Maldives. Best known as a honeymooners’ destination and divers paradise, the Maldives is as beautiful as everyone says. Whats more, it has the most unique geography: ~1200 small islands grouped into atolls (islands of coral encircling a lagoon). The international airport is located on its own island.

Let this post be a shameless plug for Dave Eggers’ nonprofit, 826; they do great work in cultivating youth creative writing with chapters throughout the US (NY, Chi, SF, LA, etc.) The reading took place at the Museum of Unnatural History. Stepping inside,...
