December already

With temperatures in the 80s, it doesn’t really feel like the holidays are approaching! There’s not a lot of decorating in town, although the embassy put up a huge tree in our atrium and stockings are hung for the Marines (we have eight Marines, some as young as 18!).

I had a fun chat with Ann, Pam, and Jackie last Sunday while John hosted a gaming day. Tuesday night, Matthew and I hosted two contacts for dinner at a local restaurant to talk about inter country adoptions (we do about one per week).

There has been a lot of news coverage about the new COVID variant, Omicron, and I spent some amount of time on last Monday’s holiday and late Friday afternoon making sure our messaging to U.S. citizens was updated and correct.

John and I are re-visiting “Miranda,” which really makes us laugh. I finished reading a murder mystery, “The Guest List.” I’ve been listening to some Spanish podcasts to brush up a bit before my Spanish test later this month!
