Sláinte!

May 20, 2017

Dear Family and Friends,

Hope you are well! Sláinte (pronounced like “slawntcha”) means cheers in Irish, or Gaelic. I’m heading home tomorrow. Today I worked, had a bento box at a Japanese restaurant for lunch, and in the late afternoon got a manicure and massage :)! Feeling really good. For dinner I tried Irish stew, which is also great. It has lamb with potatoes and vegetables.

Though I always want to explore more, I’m excited to go home after two weeks. It feels like I’ve been on the road a while because I’ve done a ton and learned a lot. It’s been a great reminder of the ups and downs that happen on survey and how exhausting (and rewarding) the work can be. Now I also have a better, fresher understanding of where we can make the data collection more efficient. All great.

Thanks for reading. Until next time!
