Anyway, Julie and I were in contact with friends and family back home via email, and I wrote down some of what I was experiencing in some long-winded newsletters. Some people who read them claimed to enjoy them, and encouraged me to write more. Since writing is hard, time-consuming work, I haven't written any more newsletters (even though I have notes and memories of funny experiences for a couple more, at least). Instead, I'm posting the three that I did finish, and maybe I'll get around to the others at some point.
