My days mimicking Carmen Sandiego have come to an end! Yesterday I made it to Houston, TX. My wife has been here for the last month training rookie teachers for Teach for America. Since she's here, here is home! I won't get to see my own apartment, hence bed, hence shower, hence slow pour coffee vessel until this weekend, but that's ok!  This gives me a few days to do some research here at Rice University, which has a far superior library to anything in San Antonio. Hopefully the next ten days will be semi-restful before our two week long trip to California!
