Footnotes from the British Underground

This blog began as venue for my stories as I traveled in Africa. 18 months later, I return to it as I travel to study as a Marshall Scholar in the United Kingdom. My hope is that this blog can be a conduit for you - my family, friends and secret/strange admirers - to track my movements, see a photo or two and get a glimpse of my days in the UK. Apologies once again to Dostoevsky for the blog's name...

Finally, the death of John Garang, leader of the SPLM and recent Vice President of Sudan, is a tragic one for hopes of stability and peace in the region. With this death, it is critical that the international community begin to work for a comprehensive peace strategy that deals with the violence in southern Sudan, conflict in northern Uganda and genocide in Darfur together.
