Yes, I'm still here!

So much time has passed since my last post that I'm sure no one is checking anymore. Anyone out there? Let me know if you are - I'd love to hear from you!

Life here went through a pretty rocky period, but we are now settled again. We're getting lots of good data on hamster activity - and are getting ready to start a couple of field experiments. So the science is progressing. Yesterday we went on a run - I ran 7k! I think I'm going to keep my runs to below 7k, however - I don't want to ruin my knees, and I can sure feel the effects of running on our paved road.

Unfortunately, Alice had to leave team hamster today. She is meeting some friends in Capadoccia and then she heads back to the States to start a new job. We are really going to miss her.

So on we go to the next phase of our hamster adventure!

I'm still here. Can't write often, but read whenever you post.

Sounds wonderful. Reading about the food -- do you get fatoosh? Not sure if it's Lebanese or Turkish or Armenian or where exactly food overlaps anyway...

No - we've never had fatoosh here. It is a middle eastern dish, but alas...I've never seen it in Turkey.

Hugs back!
