Update: As some of you have guessed, this was my evil’s side playing with April Fools’ Day, thanks dudes.
I gave Washington DC and the USA almost a month and, honestly, this is not what I want.
I lived in other places before and I know this is all the time I need to test a new city. I tried, but the people, the habits, this is not a natural place for me to be. Job is fine, but nothing to do with what I expected. And the weather, you may think is not so important, but for someone coming from the south of Spain (where it is rare not to have a sunny day) and after living two years in Brussels (where it is rare not to have a rainy day) this dark and cold spring in DC is way too much, dude.
Life is short, for real, and we better work hard to get the most of it. So last week I phoned a professional contact I recently made, and I just got confirmation of a decent position in Cape Town, South Africa (!). I always wanted to live in Africa, and especially close to the Tropics, so this is sort of the perfect chance. Unfortunately I still need two months to do the paperwork, but starting June I will be happily based in the other side of the world!
I will only miss the squirrels.
