For the past two weeks, I’ve been on vacation in the UK, visiting ma petite amie, relaxing, and generally doing as little as possible to think about the Peace Corps, blogging, or any of the other aspects of my day-to-day routine. It has been a nice break, but now the time has come to return to Africa, and to hopefully pick back up in some new and interesting ways.
Before I left, I found myself in a bit of a rut. PC training is difficult, as is adjusting to life at your site, and between the two I was more than a little burnt out. Now, I feel entirely rested and recharged, and I think I’ll have the energy and the inspiration to tackle old problems in new ways. If nothing else, at least I should have a bit more patience and few less food cravings.
In the interim, I have another 18 hours of flights and additional layovers to weather, so I’m going to discontinue this pathetic stub of blog post and get back to the important stuff – sucking down fountain drinks and unlimited wifi at the airport McDonald’s. It’s the last of both that I’m going to get for awhile, so I need to make the most of it.
