Hiking the paths at the base of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park last Wednesday, my cell phone rang. On the other end, a contact of mine at a client I have at a multi-national, intergovernmental agency. Would I be interested, she asked, in coming to Geneva, Switzerland, ASAP for at least a month or more to be an on-site editor and writer for them?
Problem, though. I was still nearly 1,000 miles from my final destination and my passport was expired. The result: we spent Monday in San Francisco having my passport expedited, then finished driving up to Langley, Washington. I arrived Friday night (May 15) and am trying to get some of my boxes unpacked while also trying to pack for a six week stay in Geneva.
I'm bummed not to be starting my Whidbey Island Confidential blog and I still have five or six posts to put up on my D.C. Confidential blog finishing up our road trip across America. On the other hand, I'm going to Geneva, Switzerland! Yoda-lay-hee-hoo!
So, I'll be blogging from Geneva and photographing life in Switzerland, France (where I'll be living), and any other countries I happen to visit during my days off. Stay tuned...
P.S. On another note, the folks at City Daily Photo Blog won't approve this blog for inclusion in CDPB because it covers the entire island and not just one city on the island. I understand their rules for inclusion and don't dispute them, but I'm trying to decide whether to change this to Langley Daily Photo so it can be included or just let it go and hope for the best. What do you think, fellow photo bloggers?
