Ok, for those of you who haven’t heard yet … Amy and I have called off the wedding and have broken up. It was a tough decision but it was mutual and I think we both feel like it was the right one. Thanks in advance to all of you for your friendship, we look forward to seeing you next time our paths cross.

Looks like I’m finally heading back to Delhi! Planning to fly out 12/20 and stay through New Year’s. Then I’ll be back in Denver for ~4 weeks.

It’s been pretty cold here in Denver, and there’s been snow on the ground (in patches now) for a couple of weeks.

Drove up to Estes Park yesterday just to check it out (and get out of Denver for a bit), and saw a ton of elk grazing along the road – very cool. The mountains were amazing, and the drive was very relaxing.

Not too much going on; lots of work to get through this week, so that I have more time to spend with Ken when he arrives on Monday!!

Oh, and I’m moving apartments this week, since Pam (my roommate) is going back to SF. I’ll be moving into a single, since there aren’t any other female travelers. I guess it’ll be good to have to clean stuff out a bit before I go back to Delhi.

It’s been so long since I’ve been 100% healthy I almost can’t remember what it feels like. I’m feeling better now but still have cold symptoms and occasional cold spells. Ahh well, now it is all about me getting healthy in Las Vegas (seems like an oxymoron doesn’t it?).

If you want someone to do something for you in India you should only ask for one thing at a time. As good as their english appears their ability to really understand complex conversations is often limited. Why am I writting this? Well to help of course. Why now? Well, I was feeling very cold and I asked my cook to pick up a space heater at the store. At the last minute I asked him to pick up coffee in the store next door. I saw the lights really go on at that point. We’d talked about the coffee last week. Now he was off. He came back 40 minutes later to tell me that the coffee shop wouldn’t sell him a space heater. No shit . Oh well, second times a charm. He’s off again. I really hope he gets one this time as I am quite cold (although I need to take my temperature because it may just be me that’s the problem).
