Returned to this God- forsaken isolated civilization on July 4 and all is settled. This is my 4th entry since the beginning of COO assignment, and feel much improved control of the staff here. Kind of making me to recall an old saying that "like the blossoming of cheery trees awaiting the arrival of spring- slowly and without hasty". Time will mend many things including curing wounds.
It's a raining-in-the-am and sunny-in-the-pm weekend, and it is doing the same again today (Sun) as I am writing to you. Brewed a pot of French Pressed coffee with two different kinds of beans- one medium and the other strong roasted, and both imported from Germany- my favorite country for coffee supplies.
Turned on my music collection on Toshiba A300 and playing it on a cruising mode. This has been one of my favorite means, in addition to trading US stocks during weekdays and eating out with my English-speaking office manager or local young friends, of consuming seemingly endless leisure time with sips of coffee, tea, local cuisines with beer and liquors, etc.
Constantly thinking about you, the wild one, and the little SoB. Frankly, the SoB simply occupies most of my memory space on the computer and mind. Just put up our Kenting trip photos on Picasa for your leisurely viewing pleasure. Sweet dream in the still heat-wave battered Eastern seaboard. It's a soothing and cool summer here with temp ranging from 10~20C.
