Don’t worry, I’m safe!

I’m lounging in a chair on the balcony of my 4th story apartment. To the left of me are the bright neon lights of a local dance club. To the right is the pale white light of CFL bulbs. I really could be anywhere…except I’m back in Cambodia.

The past few days have been jam packed with running around town picking up little things that make the apartment my home. I am moving ahead with plans to start an IT consulting firm here with Tony, my friend from Hawaii who has decided to join me. I did manage to make it out to the beach for dinner one afternoon though…check out the pictures for that.

I had an awesome birthday in Phoenix, thanks again Liz for hosting that! It was really great to see all my friends and family again. Funny story on the pictures involving our computers out on the balcony…we have discovered an open wireless connection from what appears to be across the street. We can JUST pick it up if we sit out on the balcony. Normally this isn’t a problem…however, I needed to access the Internet on my desktop computer. We spent nearly 3 hours trying to share out this wireless, unsuccessfully, via Microsoft’s Internet Connection Sharing (Jeez, I hate that thing…I never have been able to get it to work right…). Anyway, we finally gave up and went out drinking on the beach.

As I mentioned before, there are a bunch of new pictures up. There are a few from my apartment, but I haven’t completely unpacked yet, nor have we gotten furniture…expect full interior shots in the coming days. By the way, I LOVE my new camera…a Nikon D60 DSLR. I have alot to learn, but I have already taken a few shots that I’m very proud of. Check this one out:

As most know, I have been in Hawaii and Arizona the past month. I was in Hawaii doing some consulting work for JN (my previous employer) and in Arizona visiting family and friends.

I am back on my blog now, as I am writing this from Taiwan while waiting for my flight to Cambodia. I’ve been able to convince Mr. Stanford to join me this time around, so there will be some fun.

Check out the pictures on the link below…some are from Hawaii and others are from off-roading. Look for the one where Tony went off the edge of the trail.

Anyway, I still have a long day ahead of me…I’ll get more pictures up from Cambodia in the next day or two.
