Introduction:

After having lived in Salinas we moved to Monterey to a bigger house out in the countryside. Gallant Fox Road is where I spent my teenage yearsI had to take a bus to school every morning early, and my mother made us these really delicious chocolate milk shakes for breakfast (raw eggs, yeast powder, etc. #@%?!) The house was in a lovely area out in nature, but I did not have many friends there. By nature I was a bit of an introvert, loved to read and learn about science, walking alot on my own in the countryside. Sometimes I would climb the hill behind the house (see picture below), write some things on paper and bury them in jars in the ground where I sat. I had a wonderful view (see again picture below) and would think alot about life and the future and what I was going to do when I got older.

Below you will find a number of pictures I took around the house, showing from various angles and altitudes the old homestead in which I spent the remaining years of my youth as a teenager. You can also double-click on any picture in order to enlarge it for a better view.

Just your regular down-to-earth kind of person who spends most of his time pursuing a pseudo-balanced life in the best of all perfect worlds.
