One of the reasons I'm excited that MoBob is starting grad school is having access to sports facilities again without paying exorbitant gym fees. It's been a long time since the Rec Club at the International School of Ouagadougou. MB brought home registration info for Trinity Center for Women and Girls in Sports which happily admits men and boys too. I don't think though that I'm ready to join the Masters Swimming program yet. Maybe next year. I'm just so looking forward to swimming and playing tennis again. (Though "playing tennis" is exaggerating a bit I think - it's really just MB and myself batting the ball back and forth.)

L+L leave tomorrow (already?!) so we are going to the Thai restaurant at Eastern Market whose name I can never remember but is between the Dunkin' Donuts and the fire station, and across from Starbucks. L+L requested cuisines that do not exist in Little Rock (hence the Ethiopian and Thai) and MB cooked Moroccan food again last night - kefta (meatballs) in tomato sauce.

I'm trying to think about my two free weekends (one in Brussels, the other in Lyon) during my next Europe trip. Maybe a jaunt to Amsterdam? I definitely vote Schipol the best airport in the world, and I'd like to see a bit of the actual city. Paris? Provence? Fortunately MB already told his family that I'm not able to visit this time around.

In grad school I spent much free time at conferences eating food I couldn't get in rural Texas (e.g. Indian food of any kind). When I was at a conference in DC in 1996 I pigged out so much that I gave up eating meat for a couple of months.

Have you been to Bruges? It's so pretty it almost seems fake.

And from Lyon, I think you'd best head to Suisse! Geneva and Basel are in not-too-distant proximity.

But that's just me. :)

Amsterdam, Paris ... what a dilemma! Will look forward to the pictures of wherever you go.

Oh no, it's still a tough decision. Complain away ;)

I'm sure sheer inertia will make decisions for me!

ISO
I stumbled on your site while looking up LDS blogs and was shocked and excited to find a fellow ISO alumnist. I completed 1st and 2nd grade there back in 1978-1980 before we left for new experiences in The Gambia. Wow! When were you there?
