Our address for September onward:
6260 Chennai Place
Dulles, VA 20189-6260
It's a U.S. address, so mailing stuff to us only requires whatever postage is to send to Virginia. Letters do not need 2 or 3 stamps, 1 will do. Really. And mail to and from Chennai will take approximately 2-3 weeks, though longer during the winter holidays.
Another important note... please please address anything to us either to my name or to Ian as Ian, -not- to David. We happen to be going to a post where Ian's boss will be David Hopper. The same David Hopper who received our consumables order last fall. Help us all out by using Ian's name. Unless of course you know the other David Hopper and want to send things to him... then please disregard this note.
We realized that our three years in Chennai (provided no wars break out or a pandemic or riots or whatnot requiring evacuation) will be the longest we as a family will have lived in one place. I know that's no record, but still, our oldest child is only 10 and we've moved houses 9 times between 4 states and 3 countries. Chennai will be country #4 and move #10.
It should get better from here on out, with typical assignments lasting 3 years each. Unless of course, we encounter one of those evacuation scenarios I mentioned.
