Farewell Round Two

I have very little time but I just wanted to drop a line before I begin the next exciting phase of this thing we call "mission." The truth is I haven't had anytime since I've come to this city because my companion is very anal. I've contemplated several poisonous blogs I could write about him, but ultimately his anality prevented me from ever finding time to write them. He's a great guy, he just can't stand an unmade bed.

It's only been six weeks in Dnepropetrovsk and they're already yanking me out. Of course I have mixed feelings about this, but the feeling that seems to sift to the top is immense excitement. It's going to be quite an adventure.

Because I've only been here from six weeks, I was just barely starting to get to know this area. And now that they're taking me out, it's almost like it didn't happen. I have very few attachments to this city, and I fear that in a few short weeks I'll forget that it ever happened. Highlights of this city (which I might have to blog about at a future time) would definitely include the fulfillment of the John Forbyn prophesy, exploration of the Krotova ruins, and crossing the treacherous river every Tuesday.

I'll be sure to write later about the wonders of fatherhood and whitewashing.
