White Sands National Park – August 2009

Hah, just thought I could finally post a fun story about New York again, using the moment of boredom in a productive way. But to be honest I can’t think of a single one at this time. However I realized since this side is called ‘somewhere around the world’, I might as well post pictures and stories from my weekend trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico to visit my friend Jana.

New York – a first

So, after Africa it’s now New York. I thought of using the same webpage to share some insides on living in the big apple. As for now, I haven’t written anything, busy settling in, but now that my internet seems to be working more frequently, I hope to be able to share some stories and pictures with whomever is interested. Trying at the same time to get most of the techniques of this website :). So, have some fun!
