In my previous career incarnation I pretty much did everything. So I was interested to see the job announcement that was just posted. I guess there wasn't anyone within the agency who was interested in moving to lovely (if dry and quiet) Burkina Faso. It's too bad, because I'm glad I ended my time in Africa in Burkina Faso with the job that I had. It was fun and interesting most of the time, and I loved working with the staff and going out in the field. I hope whoever gets hired is as appreciative as I was.

The weather here has been great - sunny with a touch of cool fall temperatures. Saturday evening I bumped into a co-worker while I was stymied by that darn automatic checkout machine and we ended up at the Markham Street Grill and Pub. I hadn't been in a smoky bar atmosphere for a long time and I quite enjoyed flaunting the appearance of evil. (Oh, on so many levels!)

Despite Little Rock's many charms (I swear I'm not being ironic!) my favorite activity is to lie in my pristine white bed and stare out the window at the trees.

Fair enough. My favorite activity is being a sloth.

I just talked to my former colleague last night and got the updated local scoop, so I've been thinking about that agency a bit lately - in good and bad ways.

I hear DMS got permission to put the CARO office in Nairobi but not sure whether all the staff is provided for here...
