DC Update

Susan & I are currently in DC for our pre-deployment training. I got my Diplomatic Passport and my State Department badge today, which for some reason, makes me feel really cool. I realize it's not a big deal to my Foreign Service pals, but they are sort of symbols of my current direction in life. Too bad the passport is only good for one year!

We're scheduled to depart for Iraq around the end of the month so keep checking back for updates.

We were delayed for a month by bureaucracy, but we'll be on our way to DC soon. We should be in Iraq sometime in February.

By the way, Susan has started her own blog at Khuluma. Go check it out!
