I haven't written because my mother arrived here in Germany on Wednesday. We've already had many adventures -- from having to unexpectedly buy new tires to trying to get a train schedule in Poland -- and I'm sure there's more to come.

In the meantime, two things have happened. For one, I got to participate in solving The Mystery of the Christmas Box. And secondly, I learned a valuable lesson:

If someone contacts you via your blog and says she's moving to your town, be nice to her. She might eventually become the employment coordinator for your post, and then one day she'll find out she can hire a secretary and she'll give you a job. That's how I just got a new job working for The Girl.

Hello to your mom . . . have many adventures with tons of photos! My trip is coming together. Good luck with the new job . . . so I guess you are saying good bye to teaching?

Hey Sarah,
Is "the girl" working as employment coordinator at ACS? Just wondering if she's working in my old stomping ground? I miss the old crew.

Thanks again for your part in solving the mystery! :D

So much more than a "secretary" ... a "Subcontractor" :)

So, did you go to Poland? If so, where?
