Today, in the constant stream of toing-and-froings, we said goodbye to Andrew from Iona. Andrew was my first room-mate here on the island and he’s quite an amazing young man (from Winnipeg, Canada – like two other colleagues on the island!) – intelligent, very personable, tall, athletic, adventurous, independent… and a good cook… and a brilliant musician… and with a great sense of humour (oh, and he’s also a wine connoisseur!)!He’ll be sadly missed by us all on the island.

PS: Andrew+I had somewhat different body clocks: Andrew would frequently go to bed after 1pm and wake up late (when he wasn’t on “early” kitchen duty), while I would go to bed reasonably early and get up 5-6am!
