Sacked by the "downturn", an unemployed architect touring the country in a bus...



I used to live in New York City. I designed homes for the tycoons of Wall Street; Park Avenue, Scarsdale, Greenwich. It was great fun. And, after years of saving up for a down payment, I was just about to buy my own little place in Fleetwood, half an hour north of the city, when the economy fell apart. Architects are like canaries in a coal mine when the economy slows, and true to form, there were massive layoffs in firms all over the country. Devastation of the profession. So, I decided to try to find something else to do for a while. I bought a 23' school bus and I'm on the road to see if I can figure out what that might be.

Pictures from a moving afternoon....

The previous post is in "INTERMISSION" while I take a moment to post some pictures from yesterday.  Be sure to read the previous "I'm still here.." and I'll pick up soon.  Also, new readers, please don't miss "Katrina Relief" down a little bit, to see what I'm doing here.  But for now, check out the right hand column and find "Manuel and Lucinda" for yesterday's pictures from a moving afternoon.
