(& sometimes in America) IN THE FOREIGN SERVICE.

Goodbye Miami... Hello Bangladesh!
Okay, so a little bitty change of plans as of yesterday (the day before graduation & 3 days after UAB pack out).
We are now moving to DHAKA, BANGLADESH instead of Miami!! So those who don't know where it is, get out your map and look between India and Burma/Myanmar.
Some reading may be saying "wow", as in "what in the world are you thinking?!". We are just saying "woo hoo"! The Foreign Service to us means - get out there and do it... overseas. Most know the idea of another 2-3 years stateside was NOT what we had in mind. So we are ecstatic!
Lots of details to work out, but stopped the UAB and HHE (that was coming out of storage) in its tracks yesterday. Told most of our friends and family. Chris's parents got the crazy news as soon as they got off the plane here in DC yesterday. A few more months of training now, but we should all stay put here in DC during that time. We are estimating being in Dhaka this fall.
