(about the blog, that is...) I have just been slammed.
By the end of the week, I *might* have gone home on time one night...Friday, I am seriously counting on you!
I was in Pärnu Monday night for the close of Pärnu America Weeks. We spoke to a high school class, a college class and went to the closing ceremony. They had a ginourmous cake which was pretty good (cakes here are different than in the states but they are pretty good if you aren't expecting a U.S. style cake. The same could not be said for most cakes in Jerusalem, so I will take it). I got home about 10:30.
Yesterday, I was at the Ambassador's residence first for an interview with his wife by Eesti Naine, the oldest and most respected women's magazine in Estonia...it was Eesti Naine (Estonian Woman) during the first Estonian republic, then it became Soviet Woman then went back to Estonian Woman after re-independence. So it has been around since 1923 I think.
After that, we had a reception at the residence, an econ thing I wouldn't have normally been involved with had there not been a press component. So I got home at about 9.
Tonight, we are having a Town Hall for the American citizens here in Estonia. My guess is I will make it home 8:30ish.
And tomorrow we have a film screening...again, I'll likely get home 8:30ish.
I am defending my Friday evening like a mother bear.
