My name is Marc Heiden. I'm from Chicago, specifically Rogers Park, but I've also lived in Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima, Norwalk, Champaign-Urbana, and Austin.

Travels include Russia (on the Trans-Siberian Railway), Australia, Canada, England, France, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and quite a lot of Japan and the USA.

I'm mostly working on other things these days, but I've been with the project since it was Wikitravel, and I wish it well in its new, vastly superior home.
