Foreign Service update: On The Register!
Greetings from Arenal Volcano

Greetings from Costa Rica!

Costa Rica, originally uploaded by TwoCrabs.

Hey ya'll! I'm currently in La Fortuna, Costa Rica at the foot of Arenal Volcano, one of the most active volcanoes in the world. If you look closely at this pic, you can see steam smoldering from the cone. Apart from the Burger King, La Fortuna is a pretty cool town, though it is full of "gringos". In case you're wondering, I'm here working on my latest assignment for Lonely Planet travel guides (Click on the Flickr link at the top-right for more photos).

So the invitations for January A-100 Foreign Service Orientation Course are going out something this week. I had to place myself on the "Do Not Call" list because it conflicted with this Costa Rica gig. But I'm really hoping for an invitation to February class.

Cheers for now.
