Ahhh, only a few days before work ends and I return to the much more agreeable lifestyle of extended traveling. First stop will have me visiting my sister in Shanghai for three weeks. I know very little of this faraway land and culture, but I am excited to immerse myself in it. The last few months have been so busy, with grad school and work seeming to only grow more and more taxing every week, that now being free of any real responsibilities for the foreseeable future seems too beautiful for words.

I have added a number of people to the mailing list, by importing you all from Facebook and Gmail, etc. If you would prefer not to receive updates from this blog and my upcoming trip to Bolivia, please just follow the link in your email to request that you don't receive it. Don't worry, I won't be too terribly offended :) But if you do choose to stick with it I hope to be able to share with you some of the joys I experience, and I will do my best to paint a picture of what life is like in these locales which are often so different from our own, yet at times so familiar. See you soon.
