Currently in Geneva with some friends.

Usual tourist thing, I wandered around the Old City, went to the Cathedral and walked along the lakeside near the Jet D'Eau

They are currently having some sort of referendum on immigration, there are posters everywhere, with bold imagery.

Anyway we of course ate a fondue, you have to have fondue when in Switzerland.

Hey Glen, I'm actually reaching out to you as a former expat from Qatar. I came across your blog while looking for outlets that had a natural synergy with my book HELLO, AMERICAN LADY CREATURE: What I Learned as a Woman in Qatar.

The book is written and I have a publisher, Greenpoint Press, but it's a small press. There is no advance. No marketing. No publicity team... And that's where I'm hoping you might be able to help. I'd be thrilled if you'd consider covering the Kickstarter campaign I'm doing to help launch this book in the style it deserves.

Please have a look and let me know if you'd consider posting about this. And keep up the great work on your blog!

Hi Lisa. I suggest you go to the Doha Mums forum or Qatar Living to get some Kickstarter support - those places have much wide memberships so you'll be able to reach out to a lot more people.

Good luck with the book.

Hey Glen, on it. But trust me, the skeptic audience is more my speed. Thank you! Cheers, Lisa
