I'm here, and even mostly on East Coast time. Yesterday I drove more miles than I do in a fortnight on the islands! I got into Boston at 10am, then went to meet a friend for brunch before the 3hr drive up to Maine. This is Amal. Amal and I were friends back in Saudi Arabia. We haven't seen each other, or until recently even heard from each other, since 1990. She just finished her PhD in chemistry in Boston. Small, small world. We met up in a restaurant and the first thing we both said to each other was how "the same" we both looked! I wish i'd known she was so close when I lived here, we both moved to the area around the same time. Would be fun to hang out more, hopefully again soon.
Tomorrow, the interview starts. Yikes! Today i'm going to go for a drive around, check out the surrounds.
