I left Idaho on the 19th and arrived in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire last night, the 21st (my birthday). I was happy birthdayed by all the familiar sights, smells and sounds as I walked out of the airport and made my way to the guest house by orange taxi. Oh the smell of diesel exhaust and the friendly honking of car horns! I love it!
Spending the night in Geneva helped with the jet lag I guess; I feel pretty good. The real reason for going via Geneva was because it was almost $1,000 cheaper than going direct. Go figure! Anyhow, I’m here and ready to work. Got some groceries and worked on preparing for our translation checking session this morning. Côte d’Ivoire is 7 hours ahead of Moscow, Idaho.
