Hi everyone! Wanted to let you know that I am back in the US and home with my family for the holidays. Thanks so much for your lovely emails and for enjoying my travels with me. I’m sure there will be more trips to more interesting locations in the future as well as a likely return to Afghanistan in the spring.
I really enjoyed sharing some of the things I experienced and learned with all of you, and it meant a lot to receive your observations back and your encouragement. When I set off again, I’ll send out another email asking if you’d like to continue receiving these updates — I know a few people have suggested I start a blog, but some of the internet challenges make email newsletters a bit more feasible for the time being. However, if I do start a blog, I will be sure to let you know!
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year, and I look forward to talking with you soon!
Lots of love,
