I reached a decision last night while having drinks downtown with my coworkers and supervisor. I am finding it stressful to try to maintain two blogs (plus the two professional ones–one for each of my ESL classes). But I am having fun with Border Cities Blooming. So I’m putting this one to bed, at least for the foreseeable future. I won’t take it down since people still refer to old posts, such as the recipe for Zereshk Polo, and how to reach Anatole Rybas.
The other blog is less personal and certainly does have a culinary focus, but it is also where I will document trips we take, museums and festivals we attend, movies I feel like reviewing and my habit of counting my blessings daily. I would love to see you over there if the idea of following a slightly less personal blog and those topics interests you. If not, I would welcome continuing my friendship with you via email. If you do not already have my email and want it, leave a comment on this post and I will reply.
