Wave adieu to Switzerland

The email finally arrived from Switzerland - and the answer was "thanks, but no thanks". My application "was not shortlisted at this time" or whatever that means. There's my answer to that prayer, and I'm relieved in a way. Like I mentioned in my last post, the corporate life was never where I wanted to end up in my career. And really, who believed I would actually wear heels every day?

There was a meeting tonight about the opportunity in Nepal, very informal in nature, but a few points were clarified. At the same time, many more questions were raised. The man coordinating everything for us with the organization is himself Nepali, and he has been a wonderful fount of knowledge when it comes to cultural questions and even telling me about the agency I might work with, as he helped found it many years ago. However, the internship program with this ministry is brand new, and while there are about 5 or 6 of us students interested in going with them, they don't have all the details worked out yet with placements and funding. So it's all a work in progress. We should be getting more details soon, but until then it will be a matter of "prayerful discernment", as one of my professors here is famous for saying.
