Since resigning, I have received many messages of thanks and support from Somalia Report journalists, which I appreciated greatly. I have many wonderful memories of the job, and learned much during my four months as managing editor. I have no regrets about accepting the position, nor about moving to Kenya.
I'd like to express my thanks to the talented staff and reporters at Somalia Report, especially to Venetia Archer, Ellen Mai, Asiya Shidane, Aweys Cadde, JD, Mohamed Odowa, and Mohamed Mubarak, amongst others. My appreciation as well to Somalia Report founder and publisher Robert Young Pelton for having afforded me the opportunity.
I will be remaining in Nairobi until at least September, at which point I will reevaluate my situation. I absolutely love the city, and with my newly-found free time (and newly-registered car) I hope to finally get a chance to explore this beautiful country. My virtually mandatory (as a Nairobi ex-pat) sojourn in Lamu over New Year's was a mere scratch on the surface.
I'm (slowly) starting to explore a few avenues for my next project, but there's no shortage of interesting options in this part of the world.
