Goings and Comings

I leave tomorrow for another international educational adventure, this time to the distant south rather than the far-flung east. Specifically, Brazil.

I’ll be doing the daily blog again, partly for a grade, but also partly because I found that I really enjoyed travel-blogging when I went to China. I’ve got this great repository of experiences and reflections on that trip that I find myself referring to every once in a while, and I hope to recapture the lightning in the metaphorical bottle next week. 

Stay tuned.

On another note.

I am quite sad that, while in pursuit of my higher (warmer) education, I will be missing the wedding of two dear friends of mine. I am smack in the middle of the “go-to-four-weddings-a-year” phase of my life, but this one was to be a bit different.

I wish you the loveliest of lovely days, as you deserve nothing less. You’ve both helped me feel at home in this fine building (and city) in a very short amount of time, and I honestly cannot think of two people who’s special day I will regret missing more. I thank you for, in no particular order, scotch, Buffy the Vampire slayer, Denny’s, Blackberry Messenger, and your mutual disgust for poor fusion.

Wish I was there. Truly.
