"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


things related to our research discussed by my office mate & me today

  1. Getting a visa to go to the non-Kurdistan part of Iraq (her)
  2. Getting a visa for a country that doesn't technically exist (me)
  3. Whether it's better to fly through Djibouti or Sa'naa to get to Somaliland (me)
  4. That Iraqi journalists are assassinated at a much higher rate than Iraqi bloggers (her)
  5. Muslim pilgramage routes in Ethiopia (both)
  6. The differences between "luxury" hotels in Damascus and Hargeisa (both)
I love my officemate. And we both love our jobs.
