What exactly is happening of interest to me?
Months after moving in, we’re still finishing our move in, so to speak. This means dealing with the local talent: the plumbers, the carpenters, the handymen. This involves calling, making appointments, discussing projects in person and then setting up another appointment for getting the job down. Lots of time spent on little details.
Our kids just went back to school after their two week spring break. This is the home stretch of school before the summer break begins.
It’s starting to get warm. Not hot, we know now what that’s like after arriving last August (from Cambodia where we were already hot). It’s a good thing. It means the kids can go to the pool! Or swim in the ocean. We’ve been going over to Ngor island on a semi-regular basis.
My knee hurts. It hurst less than it did a month ago, but it still aches ever so slightly. It’s not really an issue, except for the fact that I really enjoy running and that’s when it hurts, sometimes. Today I ran for the first time in a month.
As we came here for my wife’s job, I put my own employment aside. I took some wolof lessons, I did some photography. I spent quality time with the kids. It’s starting to get old.
Maybe this blog will turn into something in the meantime. Stay tuned…
