In the past four days, I have:
– Strolled through Hyde Park
– Been rained on at Stonehenge
– Seen the baths at Bath
– Gotten lost in Sheffield
– Bought fuzzy boots in York
– Been snowed on in Aberdeen
Cory and Josh and I are currently doing laundry in Inverness. The plan for today is to say hi to Nessie and then head to the Isle of Skye. I’m having a fantastic time—a cold, windy, hilly, unfailingly polite time. And there’s Dr. Pepper!

I hope you’ve found, bought, or borrowed clothes warm enough for the English chill. Glad you’re having a good time. Mama
Sounds lovely! I’m so glad you’re having fun. What’s it like to be back in an English-speaking world?
I’m betting there are also Cadbury Mini-eggs. Look into it!
oh yes, mini-eggs… i keep seeing them in the grocery store and thinking of you. i don’t know if they’d survive a trip across the atlantic, but maybe i should buy a dozen bags and just save them for when you get back this fall.
and yay dr. pepper!!
Hi Clare, I am so glad you are having such a good time in England. It must be great to be getting a break. What fun for you. Get your fill of candy eggs, Dr. Pepper etc. Have fun. Love, Ma Ma.

Call for Peace Corps stories: Travelogue anthology of adventure and mayhem
An anthology of first-person travel stories written by Peace Corps Volunteers/RPCVs and compiled by two RPCVs — Steve McNutt (Gabon 2000?02) and Jacob Fawson (Gabon 2000?02) — both graduate students in Communication Studies and Nonfiction Writing. They are seeking, ?funny, harrowing tales of self-deprecation and disaster. Sharply written and witty preferred over ?how I saved the world.? Meditative is good — but make us laugh first. Vicarious fun. Think: bathrooms, food, medical, transportation, sex. Above all, think funny. Profits to charity.? Read about the guidelines at: peacecorpsbathroomreader.blogspot.com.
