Happy birthday Dad

Today is my father’s fiftieth birthday. Unfortunately, the circumstances of employment have placed us 5,000 kilometres apart, with my mother closer to me than to him at the moment. Hopefully, he and my brothers will be able to get up to something exciting in Vancouver.

All the friends of mine who know my father know what a unique and energetic individual he is. Whenever I am in Vancouver, he tries to recruit me for 6:00am hikes every other day. Hopefully, the near future will include a few of them, some wilderness canoeing, or another expedition like the one we made to Turkey.

In any case: mnohiya lita, joyeux anniversaire, and many happy returns.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.
