Help Rebuilding New Orleans:

Starting january 8th, I'll stay at New Orleans, Louisiana, until mid march in order to help rebuilding houses which have been damaged during the Katrina storm in 2005. Further information on that project can be found here.

In order to keep you updated, I'll try to write a little bit on that work and my experiences more or less regularly. Just tune in once in a while.

Contact me:

In case you want to stay in touch, you'd most likely do best to write an email. I think (but am not sure) that I will have internet access at the place where I'm hosted. Further I'll go for a prepaid GSM/4G SIM card, so I hope I'll be online from time to time and also reachable via phone. I'll post the number here as soon as I got one.
When having internet, I'll be reachable via skype, too. Just search for benztownxof.

BTW, if you are interested in the neighborhood I'll live in, just have a look at Google Streetview.

Update: I'm not going for an US SIM card, since this is totally unneccessary. I've got broadband internet access in the headquarter and when not being there, I'm either out for work or for leisure. If you want to have a talk with me, just try to skype me at around 19:00 to 20:00, at this time I have lunch break and usually switch on skype on my mobile phone. You also can try to phone me via my work mobile number, but I'm very picky on which calls I answer due to the roaming fees.
