He emailed me yesterday and he sounded down and homesick. I think he felt trapped in the touristy areas and not able to get out and see as much of St. Maartin’s as he’d like. I guess it would suck to take your first trip to a foreign country only to find you were surrounded by people just like you. He should go on a trip with the Professor. I hear about her stories and it’s all “yes, we did this cheesy tourist thing, but then we ended up at this cool place and that lead to this other adventure.” That sounds more like the Butcher’s style.
Still, I have missed him. And the lawn needs cutting.
