June 2016 has really packed in the excitement.
The top line update is that HANNAH IS COMING TO LIVE IN BURUNDI!
Although we've bought her ticket for her to arrive in three weeks, I'm still cautiously optimistic rather than just optimistic, because we had already gotten to this stage in Hannah's move last December when everything went to pieces and the second evacuation happened.
You'd think that would be exciting news enough, but we've also been given our next Foreign Service assignment: Barcelona, Spain starting in October 2017.
Oh yes, you will be visiting us, if at a minimum because of this difference:
The U.S. Department of State continues to warn U.S. citizens against all travel to Burundi.
Hannah and I are very excited to spend the next year here in Burundi and I am especially enthusiastic about showing her everything there is to see about this beautiful country. Returning to Spain will be cool too, but we'll have plenty of time for that batch of excitement next year.
