So I’m jumping on the blog-bandwagon. I figured that for the next year while I’m out of the country in Bangladesh, instead of bothering people with a flood of impersonal mass emails, I would post it all in a one of these hip and trendy blog thingies, so that those interested could read about my life as they pleased. I have an affinity towards digression and half of what I write will probably be more like journal entries for myself to reread one day than anything else... but enjoy...

I wanted to have an opportunity to post all my favorite pictures from the last few years. I admit that I didn't take all of these (but most of them), and nevertheless they deserve a place in the cyberworld.
