I will be most reachable in the morning and near the end of the day. (How to contact me)

With the Colombian President’s visit over, I’m working at home all morning. I need to stop and spend several hours planning the next few months: which big projects should be completed next, and what are the likely events we’ll have to prepare for. (One big event is next week, when the White House will issue what promises to be a devastating 2018 foreign aid budget request to Congress.) So I’m up to my elbows in project planning software all morning.

In the afternoon I have meetings with a journalist and with Guatemala’s military attache. This weekend I have to finish two academic articles about Colombia that are nearing their due dates.
