I haven't posted for a while... now I'm going crazy. I wrote notes on all sorts of things that I wanted to say, but of course have forgotten the drive that made me want to write about them. Anyway, life update:

I am moving to Azerbaijan in August-woohoo. One obscure place to another. My friends in Myanmar insist that it is a good fit with my personality. I'm stressing about the technicalities of moving right now though.

Summer... ah what plans!! Dubai? The US for Kara's wedding? Central America? Switzerland? Alsace in France? The train to Belarus? A dig? Norway? Ladakh? I have some decisions to make.

But now: To Sri Lanka. Tomorrow I fly to Colombo to reconnect with old friends and teachers (Hello Burts!!) and to see that beautiful country. As another NZ friend in Myanmar said, "Ah, it was lovely. It was chaos! Now I'm back in this chaos! I think I prefer this chaos to that chaos!" I am excited!! :) More news to come.

If you head to Norway, my parents will be there for 2 weeks at the end of July. Curly is going to Germany-Italy-Greece-Ukraine in sumemr 2009. I told her you'd probably be willing to meet up somewhere. :)
