Here begins a large adventure -- a year of study at the Elphinstone Institute at the University of Aberdeen, immersing myself in Scottish ethnomusicology and folklore. Although I don't actually leave the States until early September, there's a long list of to-dos before I can actually get on the plane.
Later this month, I'll apply for a student visa, so I need to have all my financial and other paperwork in order. I just paid the deposit on my postgraduate student housing dorm space, so at least I'll have a place to sleep!
