  • So Apparently COVID is Still a Thing 1 year ago The relative normalcy of the last few months deluded me into believing I had control of my life again, that I could make intricate plans requiring everything to go ‘just so’ with no contingencies whatsoever. Silly Sarah, you never learn! The crazy part is, I get that control is an illusion....
  • Monsoon is Here + Other Updates 1 year ago Well, it happened. Monsoon is officially upon us, which means Mumbai will now be getting rain every day until the end of October. I was really hoping it’d hold out until after our packout, but no such luck. On the plus side though, rain clears out all the particulate in the air, which makes for...
  • Ready or Not, Here Comes Packout 1 year ago Hey Y’all – It’s June! Crazy, huh? I’m still trying to figure out what happened to May! Definitely bittersweet, although I am VERY over the 90 to 100 degree Fahrenheit temps we’ve had for the last few months. I’m praying for some mid-70s in Minnesota. Heck, I’d even take the 80’s....

I recommend this blog for the Gold. As a former FS employee who never had blogs or cell phones or skype this is the best way in the world to keep track on what is going on in the country they are living in.
