Well, not much of note has happened in the last week, I’m sad to say. I got the flu, and as a result didn’t teach my afternoon classes on Friday, and spent both Saturday and Sunday in bed feeling thoroughly miserable. Luckily, J lent me the entire first season of Monk on DVD, so I had something to entertain me in my misery. Because I wasn’t able to teach my afternoon classes on Friday, I had to make them up on Wednesday, meaning that I didn’t have a mid-week free day to go stalking Chechens and/or Iraqis. Assuming that I am healthy, I *will* be having a bit of an adventure this weekend, however. Kendje (my boss) will be taking me, A and K to Lake Issyk-Kul (the largest lake in Kyrgyzstan) for the weekend. Granted, it’s not exactly lake-going weather, what with it still being frigid and all, but it should be an adventure nonetheless. I just hope I’m done coughing and sneezing by then! And, of course, I’ll tell you all about it as soon as I get back. Or perhaps on Monday. Or whenever the internet café has electricity. In the mean time, occupy yourself by scrolling down and reading the next two NEW posts!
