Really? Sorry, have I missed something? Are you relocating permanently or is this a temporary posting?

caroline: A seriously very orange building!! Thank you.

terri: Thanks! Perhaps I need to thank you for my getting the job?

Paul: It will be as permanent as any of my moves are. At least a year there.

I absolutely LOVE orange, so we are kindred spirits. For some reason, the older that I get the more I love the bright primary colors, but especially orange!

Better yet - you get to live and work in Amsterdam? I LOVE that city. It's so pretty and vital and diverse!

I'm so happy for you. Congratulations on yet another move, Nomad.

Do hope you'll be wearing orange the first day at the office.

XO Ex.

J. David Zacko-Smith: But I don’t love it even if it has dominated my life somewhat in the past few weeks!! Maybe I’m going to learn how to love it. :-)

frog with a blog: You should be getting nervous now that I’ll be closer to you.

ExAfrica: An orange shirt? I don’t think I’ll be able to do that. An orange tie, maybe.

xmichra: I honestly can NOT see myself in an orange shirt!!! Well, definitely not a truly orange one, maybe I’ll be able to manage russet or something.

It's not just your future that's orange, but so is your past. Opened recently opposite the entrance to our building (you remember the one...) is a new company, Orange Micro Loans. Go figure!

That is SO cool. My partner and I hope to travel to the Netherlands in the future. How's the Dutch. Afrikaans will help a bit. I was at the airport en route to Canada and could get by. It was so fun to hear Dutch. Alles van het beste. Prima! Ik zal al het nieuws lezen.
