    Hi. Joel, This is really cool….I enjoyed watching your video trip travel around the world….it’s feels I am traveling too. …The trip to Insadong ….I impressed of how the deaf vendors runs their business. it is amazing that I have learned a lot that there are many, many deaf people around world runs their own business which I wasn’t aware of… I will continue watching you as you travel around the world…..I open up your video clip everyday …Have you ever thought of writing a book? Will you have a seminar in Los Angeles one day , which I lived near that city, discussing about your traveling around the world…..

    Thank you Diana. Book might be in my future list. Those video clips are much alive than book. I do give the presentation at all DeafNation Expo events. Hope to see you there.

    Interesting video…as always, it has been amazing to see those deaf vendors all over the world. One tiny thing I wanted to see in this video is that you meet a deaf artist with one leg. So is it possible for you to meet that artist someday? Keep it up, Joel.

  4. Joel Barish says:

    Yeah I was surprised about that deaf artist. I had asked them to see if I could find him. they said that they couldnt be able to locate him for a while. I do hope that artist would continue his art work and sell them. :)
