Bill from Industrial Blog

Hi everyone. This Africa Blog is a great idea and I'm pleased to join the other writers here. By way of introductions, Iím a 39-year-old newsletter writer from the Philadelphia area. I ran into Zombyboy on Dean Esmay's Web site, and wandered over from there and found Resurrection Song to be an outstanding blog. When he mentioned an African Blog and asked for volunteers, I thought it was a great idea and raised my hand.

By way of my own background, I lived in Central Africa for two years Ė serving in the U.S. Peace Corps as an English instructor near the Gabon-Congo border. Most of my knowledge concerns living in either the national capital or a small provincial capital, and learning from the Gabonese and West African expats I met there.

Even though I've been back eight years, I still miss it immensely. Africa is beautiful -- both the countryside and the people -- and it has a way of sticking with you. I'd recommend everyone go there immediately.

I'm looking forward to participating here any way I can, and discussing possible solutions to crises in Africa.
