Val Goes Bald

I’m in Asia…..finally!! Yeah. I have made some attempts to post sooner but the Internet apparently hates me in Malaysia.

I was lucky enough to get to spend some time with many of my family members, take some photos, and make some new memories of home before taking the amazingly long series of plane rides to get here.

I also (after much anticipation) took a visit to Angel Garcia (long-standing family friend and barber) and shaved all of my hair off. Now I’m short, unemployed and BALD! Look out world. Surprisingly, I really like it. It hasn’t been that much of an adjustment and is already worlds easier. Who knew. I will post a photo once I remember to bring my card reader with me.

We arrived yesterday and haven’t done anything yet outside of finding a place to stay, places to eat and planning what is next.


Alright, got the card,,, here goes

    you are too funny with the bald. how about some henna tattoos on it for decoration. you remind me of my brother. after he got his degree in zoology at berkely he worked at fondue fred’s for two years. also did river raft guiding every summer for years. he is now using the degree in his work with waste water management in sacramento and working on his master’s. your mom told me about what you guys did with ned at the skate rink. the things kids think up are amazing. too bad you didn’t film it. we could send it in to one of those tv shows. hope you’re having a great time on your trip and can make this into a business that you’ll love.

    I’m just in awe of the both of you. Val – you amaze me! The bald head (you look beautiful), the toilet in the ground 🙁 and the little critters… I couldn’t do it. Your mom shared your site with me and I shared it with Jan (who you met at my house) and my daughter Tamsin – she says your mom is her Mexican Mother – and Tamsin shared with her daughter. Your audience is growing. Love, M
