I am alive after all- an update at last

4/29

As anyone who has visited this website in the last two months knows, I have been neglecting my blogging duties.  My legion of fans can rest assured that I have not fallen ill, been kidnapped by pirates, or forgotten how to use a computer.  The main two reasons for my inattention are poor internet connections and sheer laziness.  At times using the internet here in Africa has become a greater exercise in patience than a lifetime of supporting the Mariners (this is the year we make it back to playoffs).  I only have myself to blame for the lack of willpower to post updates when I have had the opportunity. I am now relaxing at Nungwi Beach on the northern tip of the island of Zanzibar.  The weather here has tended to cycle from blazing sun to pouring rain.  With the rain foiling any attempts to relax at the beach, I have finally run out of reasons to not write.

 Here is a summary of the places I have laid my head since the last post.  I will follow up with more details and (if I can get a decent upload connection) photos in the coming days.
