Who Am I?

Hi, my name is Alonzo. I'm ten years old and in the fourth grade. I have three annoying brothers and three pets; a cat, a dog, and a tortoise. My favorite sport is kayaking and chameleons are my favorite animal.

I live in Malawi, but I'm from Texas. My dad works for the State Department so we live overseas. I have lived in Germany and Indonesia also. I like living overseas because I get to see all different things like volcanos and castles.


  1. Is that a turtle? It looks pretty big. I like your blog!

  2. Hi Alonzo,

    I am one of your Mom's blog friends. I love your blog and can't wait to see more creepy-crawly stories here. Keep up the good work!

  3. I dig your pen name, snake! It's pretty tough.
    My husbands blog alias is "snakes".
    Your poem below is excellent. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Alonzo, wow, your own blog!!! JT, Lyndsey and Kaleigh in Jakarta say hello to you and they miss you very much. :)

  5. Hi Alonzo! I like your blog name too. I have a son your age, Brian, and a daughter, Honor, who is 7. We are now posted in Amman, Jordan. I'll have to show them your blog. I'm sure they'll love your tortoise! Their school at our last post in Cairo, Egypt, had a project to care for endangered tortoises and the kids got to visit them sometimes. Here's a link that you might find interesting: Tortoise Trust, and another one with a photo of a baby tortoise at the school. tortoise photo.

  6. Hi Alonzo,
    Love the story about your pet tortoise. Sounds like he is fun to have around. Not as fond of snakes as you are though. They scare me just a bit. Good luck with your blog. So far so good!
