To Andrew, Winfried and João,
(Bowdani, Feniz and Ordland,)
After thinking about how to write about the missions in Chiquiti, I thought about the idea of just writing, on your behalf, stories from the foreign personnel in the missions about their experiences and duties, perhaps as letters home type-thing. However, since I know little about your respective Imagi-national cultures and backgrounds it would be not flawless to do this.
Therefore, I've written this briefing to provide you with some background should you choose to write about the experiences of your people here in Chiquiti. I hope you do: I'd be interested in someone writing about Utania from a non-Utanian perspective with all the comparisons people make to what they know from home, especially when explaining to family back home. Secondly, I'm keen to keep this story alive a little longer rather than just let it go once the teams arrive: it aint never over when they do, it's just the beginning.
It doesn't have to happen tonight ;-) in a couple of weeks is fine. Think about the possible shortages, problems, local skill lackings, etc... as things to write about; not to mention the recent criticism of the President's inviting your people here. :-)
Should you have ANY questions or want to run something past me, just email away! Let me know also if this is of zero interest - I'll try to write something sensible from you people.
But I would be very interested in hearing your perspectives.
PS; As a further heads-up, the Lonely Vexillium Guidebook for Utania is due out in the next few days, so that may be of some assistance.
