Random stories

Hey all! Sorry for the epic lull in blogging, but nothing has happened to me. At all. The last week has been a blur of trying to get my schedule for next semester, working, Mexico, Mongolia, and general life nonsense. Today, Al and I went to the Mexican consulate in Hannover to see if we need visas to enter the country as tourists. Apparently, Portuguese citizens can hang our for six months with no visa, which is both highly convenient and pretty impressive. Dear My Parents, thanks for making me Portuguese, it has made my life so much easier.

In other news, Al and I went to a movie party at a friend's house the other day and saw Paradise Liebe, which is about sex tourism in Kenya. Had any of us known there would be that many naked people in it, we probably would have voted for the other option, which was Psycho, but we didn't. It was a really, really good movie though. Just so. Much. Naked.

I also went back to Celle (urgh) over the week to the Other American Friend and the South African, who are now married, yay! I got to spend a lovely two days with them, we went to a fun birthday party for a friend of theirs, had an epic pancake-making contest, and ate vegan burritos. Awesomeness! Slowly, slowly, slowly, Celle is filling up with some good memories.

Next week, lots of craziness coming up, plus a day-trip to Hamburg to watch cooking shows in the Portuguese consulate and with any luck pick up my passport.

Yay!

Adios!

You watched a film about sex tourism and didn't expect nakedness? I see the problem right there... ;-)

"Sex Tourism"? Well, I feel naive not realizing that is a whole industry. Hm.

Also, I don't blame you - trying to sort out moving to a different country details is a full-time job

This is absolutely amazing! You mention Mongolia and yesterday my wife and I drove past a Mongolian restaurant.

Just out of curiousity have you picked out where you will be living in Mongolia -OR- are you going to be like 1/3 of the population and be nomadic?

Ideally we would chill in the capital for a little while and do a language course before moving out to the country somewhere. But we shall see!
