“When I was very young and the urge to be someplace else was on me, I was assured by mature people that maturity would cure this itch…Nothing has worked.  Four hoarse blasts of a ship’s whistle still raise the hair on my neck and set my feet to tapping.  The sound of a jet, an engine warming up, even the clopping of shod hooves on pavement brings on the ancient shudder, the dry mouth and vacant eye, the hot palms and the churn of a stomach high up under the rib cage.  In other words, I don’t improve; in further words, once a bum always a bum.  I fear the disease is incurable.

I set this matter down not to instruct others but to inform myself.”

John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley

I started this blog before leaving on a work and holiday adventure through Queensland, Australia, and Bali. I will keep it going during my Peace Corps stint teaching ICT in the Dominican Republic.  No guarantees on how often I will keep it updated, but its better than nothing!  Same goes for photos; I will be uploading them to http://picasaweb.google.com/jennmacy.

I encourage everyone to send me lots of mail, though Peace Corps recommends padded envelopes instead of boxes to avoid searches and hefty customs taxes.  My address will be:

Jennifer Macy, PCV
Cuerpo de Paz
APDO 1412
Santo Doming
Dominican Republic
