Since landing in Chennai (India) on September 5th, it has proven challenging to contribute online as usual, to support people, to answer questions, to manage communities, etc. while searching for a place to stay at for the next few months, opening (Non-Resident) bank accounts during the the holiday period, getting a reliable internet connection, meeting gigantic insects I'd never seen before (photo), capturing insects and lizards from inside the house and carrying them back into the garden, and studying for my academic exams fast approaching…
Still, September saw 21 posts, including 10 original contributions (i.e. little noticeable impact of my 'wandering' status).
