rain and the river

Wednesday, 2 Sep 2009 | Views [339] | Comments [4]

I heard the thunder before I left my house, but knowing I had to do a few things in town, I packed up my umbrella and took off. The clouds were already starting to roll in and the sky to darken. I rushed through town, did my errands, ... Read more >

Let me just send out one complaint.It is HOT and HUMID right now. I don´t know why I even bother with my bucket baths, when I am quickly sweating soon after. Just sitting around makes me sweaty. If only the luz was on all the time, then I would just ... Read more >

The last two weeks have been surreal, but nice. My two wacky cousins -Lety and Becky- came to wisk me away from work and into the beach life. I never want to leave it. I have not only been blessed with their company, but had full use of running water, ... Read more >

March has come and gone. Where do I start? There is so much to tell that I hope I can capture it all in a few lines. February ended with independence day, which is when all the real costumes and masks came out. It sort of reminded of Halloween. The ... Read more >

Looking for a home.

Friday, 13 Feb 2009 | Views [340] | Comments [2]

I was hoping to move into this cute little orange house near the beach once the other volunteer moved out, but now it looks as if I may be out of luck. The owner is looking into selling it, and I was too confident into thinking that I could easily take ... Read more >

Xmas Week

Monday, 29 Dec 2008 | Views [385]

This last week was spent on pigging out. So much food. No wonder people keep pointing out my gaining weight. On Sunday there was a xmas party with the Junta de Vecinos (neighborhood group) where I overloaded on food, while the others danced to classical ... Read more >

Around town. Computer class.

Added some new pictures of my walk around town. I managed to pull out one of my other brothers out of the house to walk with me. It was a miracle, since he hates to leave the house. He is attached to his playstation. Reminds me of someone back home...... Read more >

Laguna Limon.

Monday, 15 Dec 2008 | Views [331] | Comments [1]

Saturday’s fundraising trip out to the laguna was successful. It started off to a rocky start, as the bus hadn’t arrived by 8:30 as planned to take the members and their guests out to the laguna, and we couldn’t reach the driver. He has no cell phone ... Read more >

Random pictures, from the bites on my legs, to the cemetery on the day of the dead (nov 1), to thanksgiving and everything in between. 

Thanksgiving. Work.

This is something I had been working on, but my internet is not that reliable now, as it all depends on whether or not the guy in charge of the building is working and if we have luz, so it may be old news...but here goes: Normal ... Read more >

A few more pix

Thursday, 27 Nov 2008 | Views [286] | Comments [1]

Lucky me. I am in the capitol and so I have been able to upload a few more pictures. Not too many, but its better than nothing. Most of them are of either my new home, or my gua-gua ride into my little pueblo.

Moldy Me.

Wednesday, 26 Nov 2008 | Views [360] | Comments [2]

The other day I took out a pair of pants to wear and I found spots, little white moist spots. Mold. I hadn’t worn the pants in probably a month, and so they were molding in the closet. I had been warned about this, but my clothes ... Read more >
