I changed my portrait from my lastest picture from Tokyo where I saw ZED by Cirque du Soleil and even go to meet ZED.
Summer has pasted and now it is winter here in cold dark (short days with little sunshine) Russia. For those that did not hear, I signed on for another year so I will be living here in Obninsk until January 2009.
It is finally summer here in Russian so thought I would change the picture. Enjoy the stories, adventures, blunders, etc. as I live and work in Russia.
I do not want to loose any of my emails and stories, so I am just going to add to this existing one. I am chaning the picture since those who know me at work know I can be all too serious and through multiple processes, I have learned to laugh more at work; but I still get excited so do not think I have changed that much...lol. As most of you know, things are going pretty well for me here so I extended my contract until January 2008. Living in Russia took a little getting use to, but I am starting to feel more like home so I decided to stay on until the end of January. Thank you to all of my old friends as well as all of my new friends for your continued emails and support! It is because of friends like you that I could do something like this and I am proud to have each of you in my life!
Original posting: Hello to all of my friends and family. Thank you for supporting me in this adventure to Russia. I know it is going to be an exciting time, but also a sad time as I leave many of you. This will be a great opportunity and a very rewarding adventurl. It is July 9, 2007 and I have my "list" (for those of you that know me well...lol) of things to do before I go. After a recommendation from a good friend in San Diego, I thought this would be an excellent way to share my stories and adventures, both good and bad so stay tuned, plenty more to come!
I just extended my contract so I will be in Russia for another
