Happy Halloween; Bring on November

Back from Ganja and it is safe to say that the Halloween party was a success. There were a lot of friends and good times had by all. One person dressed as a pomegranate. There was also a pirate, a witch, a devil (me), an angel (Ashley), two people dressed as best friend babies, and a wide variety of randomly thrown together outfits. Sunday morning brought with it the joy of an 8 hour bus ride back home. It may have been the slowest bus ever, but it got us home and that’s all that matters. Monday brought with it a sweltering 88 degree day! I did not expect it to get this warm on October 30th, but I’m not complaining. It was gorgeous. We met the Ambassador for dinner tonight and it was good to share with her our experiences so far and our thoughts about a variety of topics. She offered a good perspective on a lot of things and shared some stories of her travel experiences which was real interesting. Other than that, there really isn’t any news for now. I seem to have lost some weight, so that’s a relief. I was really worried for a while that I was just getting out of control so next time you all see me I should look like a totally different person. The pictures I have included may have been sent with one of my earlier emails but I decided to post them here since not everyone was able to see them. They are of the field where we played Frisbee a while ago. The stadium is pretty new and we have yet to see a soccer game there, but are planning on going next chance we get. So we still have that to look forward to. I believe that is it for now. The other two pictures are from Baku. One is the Maiden Tower, one of the more popular tourist attractions and the other is just a picture of the city. You can’t see it in this picture, but the Caspian is just to the right. Enjoy!
