Dear Reader,

Hello.  I am writing to you from a Hostel in Sofia Bulgaria.  I arrived safely from New York via London at about 2PM local time.  I don’t plan to be back on Seattle time until sometime in winter.  

The last friend I saw was in the States was Stacey Carpenter.  She had been my most generous host in New York City for the four days leading up to my departure.  Thanks Stacey, you are a good friend.  

Mostly this post is to announce that I’ve made it to Europe.  I am going to go out now and find some food and some sights to take in.  Love,
