The Purpose of this Blog

While I'm not going to be too far away from home (closer than my 3 months in Oman), communication back home will be a little tricky. This blog is meant to keep friends, family, and well wishers updated on my life in Peru without having to try the mass e-mail message. I don't know how often I'll be updating this; it depends on my access to the internet and my desire to update this at any given time.
