Gearing up and Getting ready for Cameroon.

This is the first of what I hope to be a series of blogs written by myself about my adventures in Africa. As most of you know I will be moving to Cameroon in June of this year to work with the Peace Corps as a small enterprise developer. I don't currently have any expectations and am open to chatting with anyone interested or who has visited Cameroon, or neighboring countries. I will hopefully add some photos very soon, but seeing as how I haven't left yet, I'm not so inclined to do so just quite yet.

Until I leave, I will use this as a source to update myself/others about my moment to moment excitement/fear of moving so very far away from you all.
I'm going to miss everyone, but...I think I make friends pretty easily, so, although I'll try not to replace anyone, I may not have room for all of you in my brain at one time, so please be patient with me and try to understand that I'm moving to a new country, starting a new job, learning and mastering the french language and possibly one or more of the 249 other indigenous languages in country.

So don't be a stranger and send me some yummy/useful care packages while I'm away...AND best of all come and visit me in the Africa in Miniature country, Cameroon!

This is a picture taken from my new room, I'm living on Ocean View and Soquel for the next two months as I prepare to leave.


  1. I'm not sure. She had a fairly aggressive eye infection...something about sleeping with her fists too near her face...she sleeps with a rosary that has a large crucifix on the end, she may have stabbed herself in the eye with, she also woke up with her diamond pinky ring in her eye...the eye should be fine, she may need some more attention though.

  2. Aw I love that others are worried about grandma! You've done well little bro (I mean younger bro of course). I am so excited for you and so sad at the same time. You will do great, I know it. So i hope you do to :)
