3 OCT - San Francisco, CA USA

Date received: Tue Oct 03 2000, 04:27 AM PDT

Well, I finally am booked on a flight out of town. I am leaving for London on
October 16th. After a day or two there, I head to Madrid, where I will start
my trip.

My time here in San Francisco has definitely been longer than I ever expected.
Originally, I came back for my sister's wedding, but once I realized that I
was going to be getting to Europe just as the summer rush began, I decided to
wait until the begining of Sept. However, three weddings in September and
three more weeks waiting for a new passport pushed my departure into October.

It's been fun to be back home for a bit, but now, I head back out to see what
the rest of the world has to offer.

As with my previous travel leg, I will be continuing to post reports and write
travel stories. I also owe a couple of stories from Peru and Bolivia.

Over the past few weeks, I've been slowly updating and revamping my site.
I've updated my FAQ, my personal information, and my links pages, and I've
also added a summary report for my last leg, added more graphics, improved the
photos, and other miscellaneous goodies. Check it out!
