New (Temporary) Job Opportunity

Hiking the paths at the base of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park last Wednesday, my cell phone rang. On the other end, a contact of mine at a client I have at a multi-national, intergovernmental agency. Would I be interested, she asked, in coming to Geneva, Switzerland, ASAP for at least a month or more to be an on-site editor and writer for them?

Um. YES!

Problem, though. I was still nearly 1,000 miles from my final destination and my passport was expired. The result: we spent Monday in San Francisco having my passport expedited, then finished driving up to Langley, Washington. I arrived Friday night (May 15) and am trying to get some of my boxes unpacked while also trying to pack for a six week stay in Geneva.

I'm bummed not to be starting my Whidbey Island Confidential blog and I still have five or six posts to put up on my D.C. Confidential blog finishing up our road trip across America. On the other hand, I'M GOING TO GENEVA, SWITZERLAND! Yoda-lay-hee-hoo!

So, I'll be blogging from Geneva and photographing life in Switzerland, France (where I'll be living), and any other countries I happen to visit during my days off. Stay tuned...

Holy Moley! You jet-setter, you! Congrats and enjoy! :)

Wow! Do we get postcards from there, too? You must be living right. Now you can earn back some of the money you must've spent on the road over the last few weeks. :-)

Some people are just born lucky. Congrats. Switzerland. It's where I want to live unto death. :)

Cele said...

Some people just know how to live.

You need a graphic designer to come along with you, don't you? C'mon, you know you do.

How much fun is that? Pictures please!

If you find any job openings for someone with a BA in theatre and absolutely no practical skills, I am totally available. Just so you know.

Let's get together for coffee when you're back in WA!

It's cool when someone talented like you is discovered! Say hi to Di for me if you run into her. Can't wait to see your pics!

Lacochran: Thanks! I plan to have a reasonably good time. (I am going there to work after all. Must stay focused and remember that...)


Gilahi: Yes, postcards all around! As for whether I'm living right, I don't know about that, but I'm doin' something right...


Lucy: I ain't one of 'em. But I am looking forward to Switzerland.


Cele: Tell me who these people are. I want to meet them!


NG: Okay, you've convinced me. Come along!


FII: Pictures will be forthcoming!


Rebecca: Duly noted. And I'll let you know when I'm back in town.


Pheebs: I think it's pure, dumb luck! I'll tell Di hello. Wish you were joining us.
