This is a welcome and a test-post all in one. I've decided to branch out from the Middlebury blogs and to create one of my own on google. Let's see if it can survive without being overrun by outside posters.
T-Minus fifteen days until departure for Cairo and there's a lot to do. I have a list that goes just about down to the ground. I just got back from my tour of the south, visiting Miami, Boca Grande, Atlanta, and Nashville (see photo of tarpon in Boca) and it's time to get some sleep before a busy day tomorrow. Expect frequent posts on my blog once I get to Cairo, but be patient with me over the next two weeks while I get all my business in order. You can expect one more post before I leave to the Middle East. That post will be the detailed one. There I will detail the specifics of my upcoming trip and outline the purposes of my blog which I am determined to update frequently and to use for a range of purposes from light to serious.
That's all for now. I promise this will be the only garbage post I ever do... just need to figure out how to work this program!
