Not much to report

A busy, but mostly boring couple of months...

Visitors and swine flu are my latest excuse for not writing. :)

Climbing Sica Sica

I didn’t realize till yesterday that it’s been more than two months since I last wrote. Mom said a few of you had asked about it, sorry to keep you waiting. Let’s see, where did I leave off?

We've had lots of visitors in the city. Some from Florida, Michigan, Wisconsin, Sweden and Germany.

Puerto Rican Party!

This coming weekend we’re off to Potosí. We’re going early on Saturday. I’m excited because it’ll be the first time I get to do some touristy things there. I’m going up with the Brits and Emily. On monday we’re going to a hot water spring that’s really deep, and they’re doing a tour of the mine...which I think I’m going to skip. Being trapped under a mountain riddled with carelessly dug mine shafts whilst dynamite goes off isn’t my idea of a good time.

I’m still in love with my new apartment, though it’s been a bit more crowded than it was at first. We’ve had a visitor, Jenny Golyer, for almost two months. Unfortunately Jenny got really sick. We thought it was a problem with altitude and her hypoglycemia at first. But I was getting really worn out being the main caretaker and dealing with other dramas, and got sick myself. Turns out the swine flu has been making the rounds here in Sucre. Let me tell y'all, it’s not fun. I lost almost three weeks, not sure where they went. We got a case of extreme cabin fever, as you can see from the pics below.

Other highlights include a puerto rican party and taco night, check out the rest of my pics on my FLICKR page.

Until next time!


  1. Visitors from Wisconsin...
    Would that have possibly been Jordan and Mandy Geisel?

  2. Nope, I don't know them...yet. It's a small city.
