I've been assigned a portfolio at work: Asia. Given that I said that I'd rather not work on Africa, the only options were Asia/Latin America and the Caribbean or Europe, Middle East and Central Asia. It's not that I've suddenly disliked Africa; I'm just ready for something new after having spent nine years on the continent. I'm really looking forward to the Asia gig, though not the time difference. More rice, please.
Somehow MoBob and I forgot to commemorate Eid al-Adha until we both got several holiday e-cards. Eid Mubarak Said, even if a bit late.
