Most of the music I'm bringing is assembled, a new suitcase gotten, the weather checked, and a promise made to my college President to stay safe and blog about this experience! I'm excited.
I leave Tuesday night (it's currently Saturday), flying to Sulymaniyah, in Norther Iraq, via Amsterdam & Istanbul. I'm looking forward to meeting new friends, and also catching up with Bruce Walker, a good friend from my time at the Monteux School in Maine (very different weather!).
New to blogging, will try to be pithy but regular.
