8 years ago today, I was giving a tour of the tea farm. I don't recall how this particular group of people found the farm, but I did give a lot of tours... and hopefully will again in a year or two when I'm back there and the field gets in shape again.

Hella funny. "Vallejo is more than the bankrupt former stomping grounds of the Zodiac Killer." "The coffee’s great, the food’s delicious, and they also have kombucha. I don’t really know what kombucha is, but you probably do."

I've been vigorously mapping recently, including for the World Malaria Day, especially in South Sudan. As a result, my global OSM rank has gone up from #19 to #17 (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ygwiqs1TBTKX-UvKJ58ROdsqfa6W5jYMZguMH79xqHU/edit?usp=sharing)
Tuesday 25th April is World Malaria Day, and we’re hosting a Global 24 hour mapathon to support eradication of Malaria worldwide. You can join as an individual, a small group of family and friends, or host a bigger mapathon event! #OpenStreetMap #HOT

This made made me want to watch Tampopo again (for like the 20th time). And made me laugh, and made me hungry for ramen.

I've been a massive fan since the early 90s, now they're back, and the two new songs i've heard are fantastic.

I've been working on the farm for 2 weeks, so my selfie looks a lot more "hippie farmer / sustainable agriculture guy" than I look in my mainland life.

When I drove up to Tex Drive In, the drive-thru lane had another customer, so I took a video of him

This is beautiful, fascinating, and a terribly dangerous time sink.
