Today it was really hot. It was 108 degrees. The five mile hike into town over unpaved roads was a bit harder today than yesterday.
In the last couple of days I have been applying to an overseas post-doc. I met one of the people in charge of it about four years ago and he remembered me when I e-mailed him recently. I take that as a good omen. Overall I think I have a good shot at this position.
If Chris O'Byrne is reading this he should know the hookah arrived yesterday. I took it out for a test smoke and it works very well. It came with two packs of top grade tobacco which I am saving for when he gets down here. I have double apple and mint flavors of the good stuff. It should be a very pleasant smoking experience.
