It will come as quite a surprise to most of you to hear that this is my last day in South Africa. A couple of months ago, I was offered a Marie Curie post-doc at the University of Edinburgh, and tonight I’m boarding a plane back to the UK – this time to stay. Well, for a couple of years at least.
To be honest, I don’t think it’s sunk in yet that I’m leaving. Once my head has got round it all, I’ll probably be in a mood more conducive to telling you about my new research, the wheres and whyfores of my move, and some reflections on what I have got, personally and professionally, from my two years in South Africa.
