Not everyone goes to the lengths of obsession of the truly amorous, who may spend years of their lives following the durian season from country to country. Those who hate durian may tolerate its odor better than the first governor of Singapore, who was said to flee, nose in perfumed hanky, at the first whiff of the fruit. The durian is banned in hotels, airports, public transportation, movie theaters, and sometimes public toilets.

I'll be updating this site periodically as I have time, energy, and something inspires me. But until January 2013 when my durian year is over, I won't be posting frequently. Until then, check in to www.yearofthedurian.com to see what I'm up to.
