Well, I’m not actually on vacation yet; however, in preparation for two weeks of working in the US, followed by three weeks of vacation, there have been many things to complete at work (with long hours) because my colleagues start there 4 week summer shutdown next week!  In addition, our US headquarters doesn’t necessarily plan around the shutdown, so there are the usual number of requests still.

It actually takes more planning than you’d think to wrap up everything at home for a 5 week absence as well.  Consequently, there hasn’t been time to complete the “editing of my thoughts” on Lisbon and load all of the photos.

I will be back next week with Lisbon and then off to the US!  I anticipate some interesting contrasts now that I’ve lived here longer!

See you all next Thursday!  Je vous souhaite une bonne semaine !
