Changes for the New Year

Last year involved a lot of changes in my life. I left Arivaca in the summer and moved to Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan where I started a job as an Associate Professor of International and Comparative Politics at the American University of Central Asia. The end of the year and start of the new one has brought even more changes in my life. My flatmate moved out and returned to the US. In January he will start a Ph.D. program in the UK. Since he has left I have acquired three new things. First, I got a mobile telephone. I had militantly resisted joining the 21st century as long as was humanly possible. Second, I seem to have acquired a new girlfriend. Third, I have found a new apartment much closer to work. Currently, I am in the process of moving my few possessions from the old domicile to the new one. I will be finished in time for the start of the new semester on the fourteenth of January.

Well this sounds very interesting. Care to elaborate?

Susan: She is a 30 year old local woman of mixed Asian descent who works security at a supermarket. She does not speak English so all our conversations are in Russian. That is all the information I am going to put about her on this blog.
