Yesterday we received bad news about our extended stay in Newfoundland: it’s not happening.

Marije had been looking forward to getting hired on a promising new scientific endeavour that would stretch out for at least 2 years, possibly even 4 years. Now, those hopes have fizzled to a sudden stop. The project, which at many times seemed like a sure thing, was suddenly cancelled.

It seems the economy has finally caught up with us and our immediate future is now unsure. We will weigh our options and hope to have a plan soon, we are here until June at least and after that, who knows!
