Hello Again

Wow!  It’s been a few months since I posted–sorry to be hibernating for so long. The maternal side of the family had three deaths in the last four months; these tragedies (two were young men) really made me rethink what I’m doing and what is important in my life. There are so many things to see and opportunities to explore in our wonderful world but in the end, family always come first.

Ankara had much more snow this winter than in 2015-16.  Living at about 3,000 feet means our school gets white snow.  Should be obvious, right?  Ankara sits in a bowl surrounded by tall hills; the pollution from coal-burning stoves means snow hangs over the city until a brisk wind blows through.  When coal dust mixes with the frozen precipitation, gray snow is what floats down to  the ground here.

Although I am on spring break in Amman, Jordan, enjoying the sunlight and warm weather, I’d like to share a few pics of snowy days on the the campus where I reside.

Happy spring, all!
