Minnesota Again

After a long and mostly productive summer in Yemen, I’m back in Minnesota this fall. It’s been a month already, and I’m just settling into research for a new story. The month has been refreshing, but really, I’m ready to get back to work across the pond, but it will have to wait. I did a project called Waiting for Guantanamo in Yemen – it has so far been published in the Global Post and is on the docket for more. You can see the Global Post article here or check out the full edit on my website here.

I’ll be in Minnesota till December working on a story here,  heading somewhere new  January, and back to Yemen in February to cover the (hopefully) upcoming elections. Stay tuned.
