Where in the hell am I?

Stories from the road, and home, by a contract archaeologist.

I work out of town a lot as a contract archaeologist. Sometimes it's interesting. It can be quite funny, although probably only to other archys. Home is Austin, with my wife and our cute kitty and all of our crazy friends.

Down in the west Texas town of...

El Paso! That's where I'm going next week for work. See, I thought I'd be going to Junction the week after, but things have changed. So now I'll be flying to El Paso for a 7 or 8 day project.
- I've never been there, or really any part of West Texas (depending on how you define Sweetwater).
- The archaeology is very different there from Central or South Texas. For example, there's some influences from the Southwestern culture spheres. This means possibly cool pottery. There's also some rock art out there.
- More Holiday Inn points and per diem

- I will now be missing Dan's photo show opening, which sucks doubly as I was going to be DJing for a set. Missing the opening is the biggest con by far, but I can't really say no to my work.
- There looks to be lots of other cool stuff going on next weekend
- I will probably get my hopes up for cool stuff and we'll find nothing.

Maybe I'll go across to Juarez, just to say that I've been there and add to my collection of border towns.
