Au Revoir, Jerusalem

This will be my last Saturday in the Holy City and the St. James Monastery, bringing to a close this month-long visit to the Armenian Patriarchate. During this past month, I have accomplished more than I expected. The environment, definitely conducive to total concentration and focus, has enabled me to move my PhD research forward. But I've only barely skimmed the surface. I have only three more days to complete reports, duplicate documents, and pack my suitcases. I look forward to returning home, but I will definitely leave a part of myself here. I will be back, and soon.

That's why I say "au revoir, hasta la vista, ts-tesutiun," rather than just plain so long.
