About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be good to others.

ABOUT ME

First, please no post card requests.

Next, please note that I am leaving Eritrea June 2015 and will not accept guest after May 25th.

I am a creature of habit, I enjoy frequent visits to coffee shops and movies. Am more comfortable with chit chats one on one than in large groups. I did have a tendency hanging out with a mature crowd, but these days I seem to enjoy and receive quite a bit from all ages.

I am a middle aged school teacher, I teach grade three at the international school here. Late nights? Not likely! I have a classroom full of kiddies in the morning!

I grew up with nine siblings so I am open to many different kinds of people.

PHILOSOPHY

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
