Of course there are no accidents. Last year while I was in Russia I was planning ahead, composing an email to a specific ministry with some questions. I meant to save but clicked send instead. Mr. H replied promptly, and except for a deal of paperwork it was an open door. Now I'm in SC for just over a month. I bought my tickets for this trip back in June, but with the FEW, PHF and SEW, it's been weeks since I had a chance to focus on this trip. I feel like I'm plunging in with less forethought than usual. It was difficult leaving so soon after such a wearying past month, but I expect I will settle in quickly.
