As of today I am officially homeless. I’ve moved out of the flat in Marchmont and am madly stuffing clothes (OK, mostly shoes) into my mom’s hall closet. December 23 I go to Frankfurt for Christmas with cousins; Dec 26 I fly to Portugal for a week; back to Scotland on January 3; then off to India on January 8. The Indian government actually gave me a year visa, so as long as I have money and energy I may keep going. Subject to revision, of course.
I hope to write regularly here, both to keep a record of the trip and to stop stuffing my friends’ inboxes with long letters that some may read and others may view as annoyance!
