El Malpais National Monument is an astounding area of New Mexico covered by the black basalt of ancient lava flows. Brian Miller took us there on a field trip, on one of the last days Flemming and I had in New Mexico. We met another nomad there. At that point in space-time, Kwang (in the picture) had been living out of his car for a number …
