These last six weeks have flown by but alas all doctors have cleared me to go back to Azerbaijan. I left on Sunday and was in Baku on Tuesday at 2 am with rain. Oh joy. Fortunately, a friend of mine gave me a North Face rain coat, boy did that come in handy. I got to the hotel around 3:30 am and went to sleep. In the morning, I went to the PC office, met with the doctors, they told me if I have one episode of swelling that HQ told them they had to send me home. I told them that if I did, I probably would not tell them. I also spoke with my program manager and the director. The next day Wednesday, I took a bus to Zaqatala, a 7 hour bus ride but at least it stopped raining. I was greeted by my site friend Kaylee and my cat Mint who let me know it was about time I got back!! I spent the next couple of days paying bills,buying groceries and cleaning. The dust on the floors made me sneeze it was so bad. The weather is finally warm enough that I can sleep in my bedroom again, so I clean the floors, put clean sheets on the bed and it is now ready. I go back to school on Monday and there is only a month left of school. My site mate had started conversation club at the university here for me so I will go with her on Wednesday and we have decided to split the group up. I am also working with her on a summer camp in her village in September. Zaqatala's summer camp will be in June and I am working with my Azerbaijani friend on that. She wants to have an environmental summer camp with hiking, park clean up and recycling. So we will see how that goes. I am planning a couple of trips this summer, one to Croatia and one to Georgia. So it looks like it is going to be a busy summer.
