OK, my few but faithful followers, I believe I owe my heartfelt apologies for my extended absence. Juggling my return home, with its accompanying responsibilities, and my remaining obligations for my work overseas proved difficult. Adding in social obligations tied to catching up with friends after an extended absence, and my blogging just completely fell by the wayside. But never fear, my friends, I have returned! I will complete some of my pending drafts, and add some new posts in the weeks to come.
In the meantime, I bid you all a happy American Thanksgiving, as I plan to spend my second thanksgiving in a row in East Africa. I hope you are all closer than I currently am to your loved ones this holiday season, and I promise to be more in touch going forward! Happy holidays to all, regardless of what you celebrate and when, and you’ll be hearing from me again soon!
your faithful travelling chitalian.
