I expect the dismal blogging record to continue till September when it will both be cooler and we will have moved. I am so looking forward to this move. And I don't even have to worry about it much because we are HIRING MOVERS. What a novelty. But there are no other options since my husband still is not well and I don't care to move the piano on my own. We're only taking a few things, so they won't even have much to break.
And there is a decent bus and train service and almost everything we need will be in no more than a mile away.
But the thing I'm looking forward to most is living in a more international city. Yes, there are plenty of Spanish-speakers in our current town, but I don't speak enough Spanish to be useful. I need a big city where people speak Arabic and Russian and Persian and sell tandoor naan. The city we're moving to barely qualifies, but it does.
