Presenting XelaMap

What has Sean been up to? Where is he? What is he doing? I realize it’s been a long time since I’ve posted here. I really have no excuse, except that I haven’t had anything super-exciting to write about. I’m still in Xela. Here I am, and I do have news.

I’ve been working at an internet / graphic design place. In March and April, I was coming to this place pretty regularly because their were only two computers so it was pretty fast. One day the owner, José, and I were chatting a little bit and he mentioned that he wanted to make a map of Xela. He had the map part already but wanted a foreigner to work with him on adding extra content. I expressed interest and returned the next day to talk more about it.

Here, after a month and a half of work, we have the first edition of the XelaMap. There are mistakes, and we are going to change lots of things for the next edition, but in general I’m super happy with how it turned out. The people using it seem to like it a lot, too. Please take a look! The thing that makes our map different from the other ones that are available is that we have lots of useful information. Check it out and let me know what you think here. If you have any comments or suggestions I’d love to hear them.

Additionally, I’ve started doing some web design and other stuff with José and his brother Jonathan. Our business name is XelaSpace. It’s becoming a real job, but the map is still a lot of fun.

    The map is looking great, Sean! Looks like it has most every essential that a tourist would need (except maybe a pharmacy or internet cafe, but that may be more markers than you really want to clutter your map with). Now what’s this “Naked Girl Party Clothing Exchange,” eh? No wonder you like it down there so much!
