Hmmm. I thought you were going to be in Turkey the entire time; didn’t know that you might be jumping around all over the continent. Sounds as if you found a really good “landlady” for your stay; it makes perfect sense to stay right there until you head back from there to wherever they send you next.

Keep writing, dear one. Love your sagas!!!

Wow, you -are- close to the cathedral. (Google Maps can find just about anything.) I like how the entire city is roofed in the same color. I can’t see it in enough detail to tell from the Google satellite photos, but my guess is it’s red tile.

Your place sounds a lot nicer than where you were staying when I first started reading your blog.

Aunt Bann, you probably got that notion from something I wrote about not being deployed from Turkey. By that, I meant I wasn’t likely to be sent to terribly unpleasant places, like the one Dave just referenced. I can, however, be sent TDY (temporary duty) at the government’s pleasure. And sometimes mine. :)

i volunteered to come here, and I managed to double my stay, into the bargain (my boss was only going to send me for a month). I’ll be back in Italy in September and again in October to take classes (although not back to Ferrara). I’ve volunteered to come here in December and January, though, should the requirement for Izmir’s participation here remain that long.

Love you too!

Hey, Diana! I’m suffering withdrawal symptoms, here! Been waiting and waiting for another post, and it has now been a solid month! MISSING YOU!!!
