beginnings...

Now, after a summer of Sweden (fika-ing, swimming, cycling on Gottland, socialising, knitting, reading, drawing etc) and some travelling (buses buses buses -i'm afraid i can't recommend eurolines to anyone- and a guilty flight, to Prague and Barcelona, and then finally London-Oxford) i'm now back in Kabul!

I'm here with the same organisation as before, but this time doing a slightly different job. I'll be working with the program in the village where the potters i was working with before come from, near Kabul, called Istalif. It's such a beautiful place, and i love the people, so i think it's going to be a good 4 months.

I'll take some pictures soon and post them up.

Dear Ester,

I'm visiting Edinburgh and was hoping to see you in Glasgow, but I just read that you have left the country. So sad! But I hope you'll have great four months and that I get to see you sometime in the future. I've just spent seven months in Central America volunteering (I don't know if you know my blog, thulia.livejournal.com), and am now taking in the Edinburgh atmosphere for the first time in three years. It's strange.

I also tried to write you an email, but your hotmail address wasn't working. Which address do you use nowadays?

Hugs,
-Tuulia

Can't wait to see pictures! It sounds so interesting and I'm jealous as I'm stuck here in Canada.
