And I'm back...



Okay, as you may have guessed I have made it back from Sabalito. The first picture is from the VAC dinner. More about that below. The second picture I took on the way to Sabalito.

Sabalito was very nice and very relaxing. It was good to be able to talk to a current volunteer about their day to day stuff. I also got to participate in a senior's aerobics group with her. It was a lot of fun and surprisingly turned into a geriatric dance party. The Zona Sur is also extremely beautiful. I am hoping to get some pictures up soon, but it may be a while.

We also went to the VAC dinner Saturday night. We ate at a Lebanese restaurant and had the whole place to ourselves. The food was very good. We ended the night at "El Pueblo" which is a small village of tourist stores by day which turn to bars at night. It was a TON of fun, probably too much. But the best stories generally begin with the words, "You're not gonna believe this... " Let me just say that a houka (sp?) was involved, booties were shaken and the rumor mill is a buzzin'. Let me reassure that no laws were broken. :)

I also got a tip on my site assignment. Word on the street (La palabra en la calle) is that I will be placed in Puntarenas. I would be very, very happy with this assignment but I am not yet banking on it because things can change, and my director had indicated that that site was going to my buddy, Mike. I am also experiencing a little guilt for stealing his site, but hey, he'll get over it!! It does indicate some major beach time.

That's all for now...

And what is so wonderful about Puntarenas? What would you be doing beside basking on the beach? The pictures you posted are wonderful, just love to see you smiling like that (the Kelley I didn't get to know) Do you think there is a job for a civil engineer, construction manager and his very wonderful wife in Puntarenas? I think we could sacrifice. Love to ya, Godmother

It's been a long time - the magic pants are gone and you look fantastic!!! Hey out there - What makes the Americans different? This anxiety about nothing, the drama, the flashy consumer goods I think somethimes I have too much shit and I demand convenience - The only thing left is the manufacturing of others' misery! Picking bananas sounds great then I remember that's corut too.....Can I meet you on the beach! My head hasn't been clear since my gossip buddy is gone! You rock - tell us about the Kiss.
