I am terribly sorry that it has been so long since I posted anything. I believe that the cause of my absence will soon be clear to you.
In on a few hours, we will be on a plane to someplace I’ve longed to visit ever since I first heard my wife describe its lush landscape, bizarre creatures, and red dirt.
Here is a list of things I had to do a week ago:
*Do presentation on “Other forms of asylum seeker protection” for refugee law class
*Write twenty pages on the return (or lack thereof) of Iraqi refugees to Iraq
*Hassle the admissions department until they actually process my application for the Anthropology program
*Complete the most intimidating take home test known to man (took 18 straight hours)
*Write 5,000 words concerning the tactics used by the Serbs during the ethnic cleansing in Kosovo
Now, compare that with my current list of things to do:
*Lay in Kenyan grass and breath Kenyan air
*Befriend a giraffe
*Convince said giraffe friend to let me ride him
*Wake up to the sound of a hornbill’s wings
*Explore the neighborhood my wife grew up in
Yes indeed. My prospects have certainly improved.
