The big day approaches...

Yep, tomorrow is the kickoff for NaBloPoMo. I did it last year, by gosh, and even though I'm "away" I'm going to do my best to do it again. I was gonna be chatty here, but I just realized that I should probably save it for tomorrow, hm? :)

See ya then!

Once more unto the Breach, deare friends...

So, it's nearly November. Time for the 3rd Annual NaBloPoMo. I did it last year, and I actually enjoyed the challenge. I like to blog, but for some reason sometimes I just can't make myself sit down and do it. So I'm going to give it another go this year, and hope to keep up with it afterward.

What surprised me last year was that I discovered some really interesting blogs out there through the NaBloPoMo home page. Sadly, because I was unable to access blogs for a few months, I lost track of them. I hope to find them again this year, and even more besides. And of course, I hope to find a reader or two again. If you're one of those who were kind enough to start to follow my blog last year, I hope you come back. I will get the hang of this. Really, I will.

(Oh! I just found one of them again, and it looks like she fell out of the blogging habit as well... now I don't feel quite so bad.)

Take the good with the bad

One of the cool things about this job is that you get to go to so many different places. One of the strange things is how varied those places are, and how quickly you can go from one extreme to the other. For instance, earlier this year I went from being at this place on a Thursday:

to being at this place on that following Sunday:

Now, if that's not a little culture shock, I don't know what is. Of course, some of the other places I get to go are cool, too... like where I am now. First, the view from my hotel balcony:

Not bad, hmm? OK, one more... I took this as I ate lunch yesterday:

Susie's a bit jealous, I know, because she's been to this area of the world before and loves it, and I really wish she could be here with me. There's so much to see here, and I just know I won't have time to do, well, any of it.
