A young man's strange, erotic journey from Milan to Minsk...and apparently, back again.

The details of my life are quite inconsequential, really. Summers in Rangoon...luge lessons...

MacDill AFB, Tampa

Sights of MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, where U.S. Central Command is located. I have to process through here, since it's a MARCENT (or Marine Central Cmd) position I'm filling in Afghanistan. Not a bad place to be stationed...the scenic running path is along the Bay and looks out on the downtown skyline. While talking to Marines and airmen here, it's clear that some have no idea how great they have it.
I arrived Mon night, and began checking in on Tues. More shots, vaccinations and paperwork, of course, and it looks like I could be stuck here for awhile. There's something called a rotator, which is how military personnel transit to Afghanistan. It usually departs once a week, but I happened to catch some odd gap.
It's great to be in sunny Florida rather than some backwater while waiting, but I'm anxious to get there. A little more efficiency in the process could be really helpful.
