San Francisco

This crappy hotel computer sucks so my last post got deleted just as I finished.

Brief post since I just learned today about some of the policy (James?) regarding blogging in the Peace Corps-
Apparently it's a lot more restrictive than I'd originally realized. We're not permitted to say where exactly in the country we're situated or what precisely we're doing for various reasons mostly relating to security. I'll try to upload photos, and I'll do my best to relate any amusing stories of me making a fool of myself, but any anecdotes have to be related with a degree of sensitivity since anyone in the world (including Cambodia) could stumble across my blog and read it.

The group here is great; everyone is really friendly and we're getting along well. It's kind of a first semester freshman year or summer-camp atmosphere as we're playing icebreakers and getting to know each other. I'm headed out now to a happy hour with some people to have my last beer(s) in the USA.

Starting up

Just checking out the new blog, making sure I understand all the ins and outs of this thing. Didn't get around to starting this until 10:30 PM the night before I leave, but anyone who knows my work habits shouldn't be surprised.

I probably won't have a chance to update very often, but whenever I get the chance to throw something on I'll write a little note or two detailing what I'm doing. Haven't figured out what to do in terms of setting up a photo dump website, but I'll worry about that later.

Time to shave off the glorious beard. This is going to be terrible.
