Not heard from you in a while! I hope you are well!

Let me know what you are up to and if you have anything new to add to the site that would be great too! ;)
Sorry I haven't been in a contact for a bit, I am in Geneva at the moment putting together good examples of education for disaster prevention to put on a disk for attendees at the IDRC conference in Davos next week....so it has been kind of crazy!

Both their and Japan are two places I REALLY want to visit and undertake research and education projects...I think I love volcanoes too much!
