Latvia!

Strangely, I am about to go on a trip — for the State Department — to Latvia. The idea of myself as a cultural ambassador is quite interesting.

What will I do? What will I eat? Will this damned head cold go away before I fly in a pressurized capsule through the air?

Will the suit that my mother bought for me — without provocation — be ready in time for my departure?

Am I qualified to represent the United States abroad? What does this say about me? What does this say about the United States?

So many questions! Stay tuned. I leave on Saturday.
