I'm Back!

No more traveling in remote areas of the world with no internet. Believe it or not, Italy has less internet points than Cambodia and Vietnam.

I'm back in Northern Ireland in a town called Larne thirty minutes outside Belfast hunting desperately for jobs in London. Hopefully knocking down recruiters' doors will help in my quest for employment. I talked to a good friend of mine today in Florida who scared the crap out of me: How an entire neighborhood in Michigan is foreclosed, teachers in Florida have been laid off and her and her new husband are struggling as he can't find a full time job. Guess I shouldn't come back to the States for a while.

On a positive note, Larne is absolutely stunning. I spent two months living and working in Italy and I prefer Northern Ireland's landscape. There really 40 shades of green. I run (almost) every day right on the coast; I'm looking out the office window now at the harbor filled with sailboats and hills beyond that with speckles of sheep. Ireland is gorgeous even when it's raining.
