I've also promised myself that this trip will be trouble-free ... a plan that started to disintegrate about, oh, I don't kow, 30 minutes into the trip.

What's been happening in Ally Land?
Not much really. After recovering from the gruelling and relentless media coverage of my last trip—or at least the two token newspaper articles and ethnic radio interview— I spent the best part of six months pfaffing around on random graphic design jobs. Those six years of law school are being put to good use, aren't they?
But now I'm a man with a plan of sorts: I've re-enrolled to study next semester and will hopefully spend sometime in the coming year on exchange in South America. We'll see how it all pans out.
This site is still getting random visitors from around the world who, according to my logs, find this site after searching for things like "transport in myanmar", "bahrain nightlife" and somewhat worryingly "moroccan prostitutes". A big Hi to all new subsribers, you've joined an enviable group of 600 friends, family and strangers with absolutely nothing better to do.
