Okay, so the (updated) word is in on my/our future location. Drumroll please…
This: is out.
This: is in.
That’s right: the assignments people have issued a verdict, and the verdict is that Kingston, Jamaica will not be my new home next year, but Chennai (aka Madras), India will be. They have several commonalities: heat, palm trees, beach, plenty of character, both 2-year high-volume mostly-visas consular jobs. The biggest difference in my eyes, though (apart from the obvious other-side-of-the-globe geographical difference), is that I’m told the Chennai plan will offer my husband and I the chance to be co-located. And not only the same place, but at the same time, too. Now that will be very, very nice.
As always, there will of course be a guest room door kept open for friends, families, and other people we like. Think you might want to visit, or just curious what this Chennai place is all about? Check out some travel links and some local links.
So here’s to the prospect of some actual progress toward us having a life together, and to the rug not getting yanked out from under us again. Fingers crossed!
