Israel - No more...

"Dear Andrea,
We have received your application and noticed that your first and second choices of study institution are in Israel. We regret that we cannot assign scholars to or allow Rotary staff to travel to Israel because of the current political situatation there. The Rotary Trustees made this decision to protect Rotary scholars and staff. We therefore request that you send us two alternate choices. If you wish, you may rearrange your current choices to make the University of Sydney your first choice, etc. In any case, please send us two alternate choices to make a complete list of five. Other countries in the region to which we cannot send scholars now are Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Liberia, Sudan and Yemen.

You can just respond to this email to finalize your list. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. "

So now I'm thinking Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; Fukuoka, Japan; or Osaka, Japan. All cultural or international studies.

What do you think?

Sorry about Israel...but at least I'll be able to sleep at night without worrying about you being sold on the black market as a slave. I hear Japan is nice and Crocodile Dundee is from Australia, so really... who would want to go to Israel anyways?
