Since it's been nearly a month since we've posted any updates I just wanted to let it be known that we're alive and doing well! Life has just been moving ahead somewhat normally this past month. We've both been busy working on projects at work and I've been busy studying for the GRE in my spare time. We're headed to UB (the capital) soon for the GRE, to get flu shots, and to celebrate Thanksgiving with about 150 people (all PCVs and staff). We're also taking a short trip up to Erdenet, a town north of UB and the third biggest city in Mongolia. My friend who lives there says it's "better than Paris" in fact. We're looking forward to seeing another part of Mongolia, seeing friends, and doing some work while we're there too.
We wish you all a happy Thanksgiving!
