Here I am…a year on

by Adam

I arrived here in New Caledonia on the 22nd of October 2012.  Today is the 22nd of October 2013.  It’s a year since my arrival!

The place has changed a lot in the past year.  There are more rules, less Chinese people, construction is almost complete, meeting many people, learning a few words in French, seeing more of the island, finally got to see Noumea, the food here is getting better, and I’ve put on weight. 

I’m still thankful for the opportunity to be working here on this project, but dearly miss my wife, family, friends, colleagues, church, and life, back home.

I hope to put effort again to blogging my stay here Smile

Next week, I am going for my R&R, and I really do hope that I can still fit into my suit, as I will be attending a wedding dinner.
