Moshi, Tanzania

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

Meagan and I have been in Moshi, Tanzania for the last two days – it’s been an overwhelming blast so far. We’ve been tagging along with our friend Greg, who has spent two years here, and he’s been shepherding us from one project to another.

Made it to Tanzania

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Meagan and I just arrived at our hotel in Moshi, Tanzania. It’s Tuesday night here. We left Boston Monday night (with a bit of a close call), transferred in Amsterdam, and now are in Africa. More details to come. Our friend Greg graciously met us at the airport and took us in a cab to [...]

The MSG 150

Monday, July 14th, 2008

Today was an unexpectedly fun day. I originally had plans to meet up with my friend Adam for lunch. How I know Adam is a somewhat funny story. When I took a few months off to live in Whistler a few years ago, I posted an ad at work to see if anyone knew people [...]

Weekend Update

Sunday, July 13th, 2008

Friday: Went to happy hour at Linda’s – enjoyed the patio and fantastic summer weather that we’ve had of late. Then headed to a friend’s BBQ, where I proceeded to eat too much meat. Someone made a strawberry rhubarb pie, which was also fantastic. Catching up with friends was fun, although I discovered that I [...]
