This is some random chiva that was at our stop while we were waiting for our chiva. Just so you know what one looks like.
This is the truck of a friend who was nice enough to bring up our stove, mattress and two weeks of food for us. This was right after Thanksgiving. He got stuck, but eventually made it out. Hooray!
In the last week we have had wonderful weather and it only rains a little bit every day, so the road is drying out and the transports come almost everyday. When it is not raining the climate is nearly perfect and I can't help but marvel at the paradise we are lucky enough to be living in. There was a rainbow on my birthday.
In Albrooke Mall many of the stores have mannequins and a fair number have impossible, gravity defying, ginormous, ... er earlobes. Apparently taking pictures is not allowed in the stores. One of the guards appeared and said, "No cameras." And I said, "but look it's funny," as I tried to show him the picture on the camera. He did not crack a smile. So we took the second one outside through the display window and took off when a different guard started walking our way.
I did a series of 11 drawings for a Peace Corp manual. Here are a few:
Peaceful reading Zeus.
Foy touches his tongue when he does this and I tell her not to. Its not his fault. We all look dumb sometimes.
Zeus helping me pack. Or maybe he just doesn't want to get left behind.
We will spend two years in this beautiful country and come back with a bunch of cat pictures.
