Perhaps it is as hard to understand as it is to explain why I have not been so diligent in keeping up my journal since my last entry weeks ago, but I will try. My life has been so hectic that I just can’t believe it, let alone keep up. My girlfriend often needs to remind me which day of the week it is as they seem blend into one another these days. Shit, I even forgot my mother’s birthday on the 12th, something I don’t think I have ever done. So many things continue to change, but to briefly update you on some of them, the biggest of which was the panorama job for the Corinthia Group. It turned out they are owned in great part by the Libya government, so the owners/representatives decided it best not to retain my services for the job. Oh well, such is life I figure. It turns out the US has a boycott on the group, but hopefully that will one day change. But if anything good did come out of the situation, I learned an incredible new technology and am very grateful to them for that. I also have some nice panoramas to use in my portfolio as well.
On a personal note, I am scheduled to return to California on the 19th of Sept. and will stay there for 3 to 4 weeks, then my girlfriend will fly from Hungary, God and the State Dept. willing, and we will holiday for 3 weeks before returning together for a winter in Budapest. Brrrr. We’ll see how I like it… When time permits, I must tell you about a young Hungarian I met named Bela who is sharp as a tack and with whom I have developed a wonderful business and personal relationship! x
