The Ubiquitous Gulicks

Weird event of the day . . . nothing much was going on today, and I stayed home tonight to do laundry. State and Main was on one of the movie channels – it’s definitely weird to be sitting in a foreign country and see your relatives’ names scroll by during the credits! There was a plethora of Gulicks in the prop crew of that movie, and rightly so!

Tomorrow, I’m headed to Tel Aviv to spend the weekend with a friend of mine who just got posted there. She the first of the bunch to actually be called into the Foreign Service, and it’ll be interesting to talk to someone on the other side of the policy line.

Anyway, all is quiet here – I may come home a few days early, since it doesn’t make sense to try to work during Eid. In the meantime, I’ll enjoy my weekend on the beach, and try not to think about everyone who’s not allowed to go.

Next week, we're planning to go to Amman for a day (and a night, since the border closes at 1pm, so you can't go back the same day), so hopefully that will yield an uneventful border crossing and some interesting Jordanian adventures. Stay tuned...
