The blog is back AND Rob’s in Dallas, Texas!
Yes, I flew in yesterday for two weeks’ training to become an arts consulant, whatever that means!!


This is where I’m training/living. The weather is GREAT and, apart from the jet-lag, everything is going swimmingly. This is my second time in the USA – click here to read about my first visit in 2006.

What do you know about TEXAS???

I knew very little, but was expecting to see oil wells everywhere, but there are none to see in this part of the state. The texan flag looks like this, which I almost mistook for the Chilean flag:


Finally, the official state flower of Texas is not the yellow rose, as I imagined, but the bluebonnet, a member of the lupin family. Here’s what they (and I) look like:


That’s all for now. Thanks for reading. The blog is now back and Mali is on the horizon! Watch this space…

Welcome back to the blogosphere, and welcome to Tejas! Sorry you didn’t see any oil wells, but you may see the odd pump jack in the country (the ones that kind of nod up and down) and you’ll for sure see natural gas wells. They’re huge!
