I bet you were expecting some changes beyond what you now see. Suckers. Actually, I was going to really switch up the feel but failed miserably...again. It is kind of like a federal road project; it took longer than expected and isn't all that much better now. Keep an eye out, there should be some real changes in the not so distant future.

Wow, you thought I was dead or corporatized or worse without internet, well only 28% of that is true. Shortly after returning from the rally, my video camera crapped itself. Having rendered itself useless, I was stuck with a mountain of video and no way to transfer it to my computer. Thankfully Dom showed up in Bristyle with a video camera and I scammed it from him for a bit. Here's the videos:
This was shot the day after we crossed into Mongolia. We were traveling from Darkhann to UB and saw this ger with a pv panel.

The first film after crossing the Mongolian border. We had been driving for 24 hours and I was very clean.
Patrick standing in what was once the Aral Sea giving his take on how it came about.
My grubby foot makes an imprint in the pavement in central Kaz. It was that hot.

The Pan Am rally prep is under way. This will happen next summer (2008). If you would like to help with prep email me at email@example.com.

- the big story here in sri lanka today was a mortar attack on a helicopter carrying foreign diplomats and a few VIP-type government officials who were visitting Batticaloa; a region in the East that has experienced quite a bit of violence. Guess who was also in the helicopter? Yup, the head of WFP, my father.
