I saw Appalachia when I was driving up a mountain in Nova Scotia, when I was hiking in Costa Rica, and when a friend showed me neighborhoods where the real people live in  St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands.  I see Appalachia everywhere.  This is the section for reports on far-flung places and events  that feel like  Appalachia.  What’s that?  TBD.  It may be the place; it may be the space inside someone’s head.
