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.
