WiFi at Westwood

I am finally on the internet this morning. No more stealing WiFi from the neighbors behind the tinted glass of my rental van which always looks suspicious and I feel like a criminal when i have to resort to scanning the streets for a signal. Thanks to The Coffee Bean at Westwood, where i am spending my morning, waiting for my appointment at the British Embassy to get a visa for UK.

Pray for us this morning. If we get the right visa stamped on our passport, we can stay in UK for 4 years, which is a lot better than leaving every six months.


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)


  • I’ve noticed visa issues have climbed into my top ten of prayer requests. Though they rae a pain to sort out at times, it is exciting to see that so many people are living a lifestyle that creates this need. Anyhow…

  • if you have a car, and a few hours off, drive up the 405 about 10 minutes to the Getty Center museum. $6.00 to park, free entrance, and it’s one of the most perfectly created spaces around. You will be sad to have missed it if you don’t.

  • To be more specific, go North on the 405 freeway for about 5 miles, and you’ll see an exit for “Getty Center Drive”. Follow the signs.
    I can’t emphasize enough how masterful this place is. One of Richard Meier’s best designs, lush open spaces, beautiful gardens, it’s worth the drive even just to sit out in the courtyard with a cup of coffee and listen to the fountains.

  • Andrew, are you still at the Coffee bean? I live 100 meters from where you are right now and I’m heading for breakfast! Let me know if you are still there and I will drop by!

  • Good to hear that you were finally able to ‘honestly’ get on the web. We lived a month on our neighbors wifi…..Amazing number of folks in the building with wireless. Lord bless your visas
