It's the time you've all been waiting for...

I mentioned last week that I had news that I could not reveal as it had not yet been confirmed. In the last 48 hours I have received confimation, so I am pleased to announce... (drum roll please)...

As of the end of March I will be blogging from Port Vila, Vanuatu, as I have been offered an 18 month contract working for a NGO (or non-government organisation for those of you that are wondering), and I have decided to accept! While I will initially be starting out doing a combination of financial management and project programming, the position is a fluid and flexible role that will change over the 18 months in order to meet the changing needs of the organisation. It is a very exciting time to be getting involved with this organisation as it's a time of big change and development within the organisation.
The added bonus of this job is that I get to go and live in my crazy little house at Blacksands with my honey. (For a description of our house click on the link to a previous post. Photos of our two little rooms are below.)

Our bedroom...

Our living room / kitchen... (the bench with our gas camping stove is on the right out of the shot).

To those of you who were convinced that I'm pregnant, sorry to disappoint. I know sprogs don't necessarily follow plans, but we won't be expecting any "little guests" until 2010 if all goes to plan.

I will leave you for today with one of my more artistic photos from my trip. We lit a big bonfire on the beach the night before New Years Eve and I was playing with my digital camera, which I bought just before I went away. I turned off my flash, pointed and shot and this is the finished result...

Lucky you, Yaeli. I hadn't heard of Vanaetu until a few weeks ago when a visitor to my Journal registered on my country list.

Okay, I thought my geography was pretty good, but I'm going to have to find Vanaetu on a map (I first thought it was a city in India). Congratuations on your new job. Michele says hi.

That is great news Yaeli. I hope you'll be really happy. You deserve to be after putting up with all that Bulls**t from the Aussie Govt. Good luck.

Hi beautiful Yaeli! I'm late to the party on this post--sorry.

That's great news since you can be close to Ben this way. Does the job use your nursing training? It doesn't sound like it does but I'm sure medical skills are in demand there.

It looks like you and Ben are going to be living a very low maintenance lifestyle. I love the colors that are being displayed in the room and I'm surprised there's Internet connections there on Vanuatu. Is it across phone lines, Yaeli?

Happy St Valentine's Day, lovely Yaeli. And to answer your question, kosher salt has bigger crystals and it's circumsized. No iodine either.
