We made it through the wedding. It was a lot of fun. I am trying to get some more pictures uploaded through Kodak, but am having technical problems, so hopefully those will get worked out. The ceremony and reception was in La Nueva Concepcion, Gloria's hometown. My friend Kathy and her brother John flew in from San Francisco for the festivities. Here's some pictures....

Afterwards, we, La Mara, continued with the festivities in La Palma. More pics from the after party....

Directly after the wedding, a delegation arrived from Oregon of 25 high school kids. I spent the first three days with them, working 12+ hours a day until about 2 am Thursday morning when my body said "ENOUGH!" and began violently expelling fluids. So to say the least, I have not made it to work the last two days but am hoping to be able to join the delegation again this afternoon or first thing tomorrow morning. This delegation leaves on next Friday and then I have about 5 busy days (one of those actually a non-work day) before my delegation arrives on the 28th. Followed shortly, I'm certain, by some sort of collapse.
