12/11/06 Okay, I know it's taken my forever, but I've finally updated my page with some pictures. My job's taken me to some cool places. So I've added links to the pictures.


My two years in The Gambia are finished and I am happily back in the US. I'm not having any problems readjusting to life here, in fact I am overjoyed at the prospect of an endless supply of pizza, Oreos, and Slim Jims. And I've even discovered some new treats since I've been back -- soy milk! Who knew a bean could made such a great beverage?

Anyway, I'm living in California now and I'm a happy little engineer in Silicon Valley. I found a job at a great startup with nice people, interesting work, and, best of all, a kitchen stocked with free food. I love the cool temperatures here and the beautiful mountains. Plus, I'm close to San Francisco so there's always plenty to keep me busy.

I'll try to keep this page updated with the latest in my new not-so-exciting-but-much-easier-because-there's-electricity-here life. Stay tuned.
