The New Semester Begins
I got back to Bishkek yesterday okay, but my luggage did not. It is still on holiday in London. When I got back I found out we had no electricity in my flat. But, I managed to get that fixed yesterday. Today I taught my first class of the new semester, Politics of Genocide. Tomorrow I teach Political History of the USSR and Migration and Borders. Despite lots of little third world problems, life in Bishkek is very good. I have an enjoyable job, a wonderful girlfriend, and a conveniently located apartment.
