And so it begins…

On the Ides of March, I left my job as a TV news producer in Washington, DC in preparation for my move to Kosovo. The day proved a little better for me than it had for Caesar as I left the office where I’d spent nearly seven years of my life and went directly to buy a new Macbook. I wasn’t entirely sure what was next, but I figured that was the right tool for whatever would come.

“Do one thing every day that scares you.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

Why Kosovo? (A question oft-repeated by friends, family, and colleagues… Along with: Where is that? It’s cold there right? Do they speak Russian?) My boyfriend – we’ll call him C – has been here for over a year for work so I thought I’d join him on this side of the pond and see what there is to see.

So far, this is a lot of what I’ve seen from the balcony of our apartment in Pristina, but I’ve spent a little time exploring the city too…

I also had the great fortune to immediately discover The Ideas Partnership, an organization focused on keeping children from Kosovo’s Roma and Ashkali communities in school. I got to meet the women who make Sa-Pune soap: one of the many ways the Partnership encourages new sources of income for this community.
