Users by language

I've lived in Chapel Hill, Colonia, San Rafael, and Shenzhen, among other places. Feel free to ask me questions about those places, and I’ll do my best to help. I’m also familiar with other parts of Marin County and the Research Triangle, and I’ve traveled extensively in Uruguay. I can be reached using the "Email this user" link to the left, or on my talk page.
