So, I've been busy and failed to post anything, as usual, but just to say that I'm leaving Addis Ababa tonight, and will be arriving in London tomorrow afternoon, having successfully completed my one year in Ethiopia with Volunteer Service Overseas. I have mixed feelings about the experience, but I feel it has been a good thing overall, and I'll hopefully have the opportunity to chat about it to folks (only if they are interested!) at various points over the next two months.

Anyway, I currently plan to stay in Oxford/London for about two months altogether, while I follow up on some employment leads (and attend/assist with Eastercon!)then return to the USA. If I'm successful with my applications, that will be for just a short period while my work permit and visa come through, but if I'm not, then I'll be settling in California for a bit, most likely at Tassajara Zen Mountain Center for a second summer program, prior to relocating to San Francisco and pursuing employment there. So there's a bit of uncertainty as to where I'll end up and what I'll be doing, but I look forward to having the chance to catch up with everyone at greater length very soon, whatever happens.

<applause>

Glad you made it through the experience safely. Places like Ethopia scare me. There's no way I could ever do your job.

PS. If you find yourself near Ashford at some point we'd love to have you over for dinner.

Wow - congratulations on completing the one year VSO. I can tell from what you've told us about it that it wasn't easy, so it's an achievement to have stuck it out, and to have gained the experience.

Looking forward to seeing you again soon in Oxford,

Have a safe journey!

It will be great to have you back and I'd love to hear about your experiences. Will be having some people round on Saturday evening if you're up to dealing with a small hoard by then ;)

Spare room. Arkham. Tea. More tea. Hello-Kitty addicted offspring (ours, not yours).

You know where we are.
