The adventure begins! In smog infested Lima. I have been here for two days allready. Our host family have been amazing. Kevin and I have explored downtown, surfed at the beach, and ate some great local food...and inhaled 10kilos of diesel fumes.
Leaving Blue Sky was one of the most difficult decisions I have made. Leaving my awesome NY apartment on top of that made it even worse. But I will have the memories! The feeling of family our department had was stronger then any other studio could have. The talent level of the team on Horton was unreal. All the good and bad. The overtime, Nisi rationalizing it, the release date finally arriving, the excitement of box office success, life drawing at 11, the flooding basements, basketball and frisbee games at lunch, the bbq's at Rich's pad and Jimmy's. But most of all my friends. Pete and Bruno´s friendly email chains, Jackie making faces at her monitor, Scott fixing something, Rizzi overworking, Slossums, Coats complaining about the rigs, Ray's 'snap', late nights in NYC with Galen, Ed, Tonin, Rich, Ryan and Barker, Melvin speaking engrish, Tom laughing about some nonsense Greengo was up too...Jess making fun of Davisms....

This is the first post to my new blog, which I will attempt to update as much as possible. I will be traveling in Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil the next few months, and then heading to Europe. I hope to meet as many AM students/mentors/alumni as I can and see how big this community is out there.
