It seems not a day goes by without some mention of protests and the Olympic torch. I for one didn’t pay much attention until today when I read the Sunday edition of the San Francisco Chronicle 4-6-2008. The articles “2 views of Beijing as Olympics approach,” contained “Tibetan Americans: Bay Area exiles fight to keep…… Continue reading Olympic Torch – San Francisco
Thus we come to my Coconut example which describes the anxiety I feel being back in the USA after living in Vietnam for two years. It also is a decent stab at an explanation of why I clearly prefer life in SE Asia over life here.
Once again, long time, no post. Yet, the dam of thoughts have overflown and I couldn’t resist another post. 1. A glimpse of Asia in SF.

A question I’m asked a lot is “Why San Francisco?” For some reason I think I give them…… Continue reading San Francisco – Unemployed Life
