Sand and Tsunamis at New Web Address

We just bought our own domain name (www.sandandtsunamis.com), so our web address is changing over the next couple of days. Hopefully it will resolve well and without complication. The process was pretty straight forward, so we're optimistic.

The site itself isn't changing much (at least not right now). It' still hosted by Blogger, and even if you type in the old name (http://sandandtsunamis.blogspot.com), it will still take you to the new site. The URL is certainly a bit easier t0 type, and we like the thought of having our own domain, as it lends a bit more "real-website, not just a blog" sort of feel to it. Not that there's anything wrong with having a "just a blog," of course.

We are thinking about changing the layout a bit, and may work on that in the future. Maybe once we get back to the US would be a good time to do so, as we'll be starting another phase of our life. We just don't want to lose all the work that's gone into it so far, so I'll need to figure out how to migrate everything to a new format.

For now, then, continue to visit at our new address, www.sandandtsunamis.com.

Erik Trinidad Got Shot

For a few weeks now, we dedicated followers of the hero of The Global Trip, Erik Trinidad, have been anxiously awaiting the resolution of a cryptic message in the comments saying that Erik had been shot in Columbia (the country, not the University). There was a flurry of concerned reaction from readers followed by assurances of his wellbeing by Steph, his traveling companion.

It's all true. But fortunately, it didn't happen in the typical way one thinks about shootings in Bogota, Columbia. As it turns out, Erik had the opportunity to interview Miguel Caballero, a well known creator of designer bulletproof clothing. Part of the deal though, if you're interviewing Senor Caballero, is that you test his products. So, Erik and Steph both got the up close and personal demonstration of how well the clothes work.

Read the entry. Watch the video. Be amazed. And if you need to, buy a bulletproof jacket.

Update to older post

I updated the Relatives and Baby Roulette post with some pictures of Baby Roulette. You can more clearly discern the rules and play it for yourself. Click on the title of this post to take you straight there.
