Career Search

Old David
This is exactly what David used to look like when he was working. In fact, when he’s working on blogging or picture development, it’s still what he looks like. But as we travel along he’s trying out some different jobs to see how they fit, in case he wants to strike out in a new direction when we get home.

This first business is ready made—the sign is right, and he does love tea.

Is professional rock skipper a thing? Because I think he could nail the audition.

Lake Titcaca floating island reed farmer was a bit of a stretch, considering he couldn’t even stand inside the houses (and that’s a camera, not a beer baby).

And while he did ok at ice climbing, it was difficult to find a pair of crampons to fit his feet. Although maybe you can write those off on your taxes?

I have to hand it to him—he’s giving everything a shot.

This guy seems to think he’d make an ok coconut street vendor.

However, he really does seem at home in the kitchen.

Me, I think this face says it all. Thai chef or fire daredevil.
