1. Blog Entry- June 2010: Pulitzer Prize-winning NYC photo editor, Stella Kramer, interviews Jones for her blog, Stellazine, about her (Jones’) ‘experience, and what she learned about herself, about travelling with donkeys, and where home really is….’

    The inimitable Stella Kramer asked me if she could interview me for her blog, Stellazine. Ermmm……ok! I really admire her work so I was extremely flattered that she asked me. She said she was really interested in hearing my story because I had kept the blog whilst on the road (and obviously still do). Her questions were great and answering them took me back to the journey and made me want to literally be back on those dusty roads.

    Here is the interview. I hope you enjoy.
