Why Now?

We joined the Foreign Service in 2002.  I didn't start a blog.  We lived in Kyiv, Ukraine from 2002 - 2004 and although, there were about a zillion and one things I could have written about, I did not start a blog.  Our next move took us to Manila, Philippines.  No blog.  We lived in Monterrey, Mexico from 2007 - 2010.  We survived the Swine Flu and the drug cartels.  Did I write about it?  No.  Last year, in August 2010, I moved to the exciting, exotic, dangerous city of . . . . Toronto, Canada.  And yes, now I have decided to begin a blog.  So basically I moved six times in ten years and don't have any "words" to show for it.  Photos?  YES!  About a zillion.  But no words.  So here is to a new start, a new hobby, a new attempt to document what it is that we do after the boxes are unpacked . . .
