Another Voice Inside the Blogosphere

I had thought I'd send my news from abroad via email, but a very good friend pointed out that doing so is old news. Blogging was the way to go. So I thought about it and decided being away and having news to send was the pefect excuse to give it a go.

So here it is, Alastair Cameron's Letter from America. I can't promise the depth or lucidity of the late Alastair Cook, and I certainly hope this blog doesn't run as long as his radio postings. Nonetheless, it might contain some original thoughts about our American brothers and sisters arising from the perspective of this kiwi expat.

The postings will be supplemented by photos, which you'll be able to access from Webshots. Follow this link and you'll see a series of photo albums with names like "Yosemite National Park (July 2005)" and "UC Davis (July 2005)". Click on the albums to see the photos and my explanations of where it is and who the people are.

For those of you who made representations before I left that I don’t write overly extensive travelogues, my intention isn't to include every detail and observation. It's to hit the points of most interest to me, and so hopefully to you, my friends and family back home.

Having said that, you might need to flick down for key words in my first substantive post, California Dreaming. A lot was crammed into my four weeks in California, so the post is a bit of a monster. Given the kind of content you're probably most interested in, I suggest searching for margarita, Casto, young men, beach, pool and gym. Of
course pictures speak a thousand words, so you could just look at the photos...

Enjoy.

There were lots of us who enjoyed your "overly extensive travelogues" the last time you were sending them. Feel free to resume the old habit I say.
