I’m a recent resident of Alameda, CA, and I love knowing the cities in which I reside “inside, outside, upside down” (in the immortal words of Stan and Jan Berenstain). I love the Bay Area (except for the insane cost-of-living), and am ecstatic about living on this little island called Alameda. I’m an ethnographer at heart, so this page is where I’m going to record my very unscientific “ethnographic” notes. As Kramer once said, “I’m doing this just for me,” but if you want to learn along with me, no problem. Enjoy!
