Leaving Limerick

It's been a fantastic few days in Ireland. The Humanitarian Affairs Officer training course was pretty good; like all courses there are elements which are interesting, elements that you've already covered twice this year, (I must be an expert in Humanitarain Reform by now!) and elements that just aren't handled particularly well. The OCHA staff were a fantastic lot, as were the other participants. I wish I could've had more time to explore Ireland, as I really really really hate flying home from Europe and would have loved to put it off for a few extra days!!

Next week will be a busy one, preparing for a year in Lebanon will involve fun things like going to the dentist and forking out for a new passport...


  1. There once was a man from Venus...

  2. ...who was envious of the more agreeable atmosphere on planet Earth so he moved here with his family and currently runs a small bistro in a Parisian suburb.

    Yeah, I heard that story. Did you hear any good limericks?
