I convinced MoBob to drive me to Charlottesville on Monday. While I'm meeting with someone at UVA he'll be visiting Monticello. I asked my contact at UVA there to see if MB can attend a soccer match or practice in the afternoon. Lucky MB!
In the meantime, a very busy Friday. I arrived before 7am for an early morning phone to Bangladesh (no luck getting through) and another phone call to Mali (same). I thought I'd try sitting on the exercise ball at the office and thus carried it, fully inflated, on the Metro. I got some odd looks but hey - what do you expect at 6:30am? At least I'm wearing pants. Two phone calls to Lyon, and several proposals to review, including one for emergency response in Kenya. Damn exercise ball gave me a backache.
No weekends plans - maybe I'll finally get to go ice-skating?
