A Few Things

Hi everyone!
Well, it's been a bit of time, but I've been busy.
Also, it rains here basically every afternoon this time of year, and I can't really use a computer too well to post a blog entry, since many hosues here don't have breakers and we're worried lightning will fry our appliances. Which actually happens here, I guess. But in any case, it's a bit depressing because the whole morning, it's usually sunny, warm, and beautiful, but right around 3:30 (the time I leave work), it starts to rain, usually till 8 or 9. I feel like I'm in this short story we read in elementary school. It was called something like "Summer For A Day," and there's this classroom in a colony on the planet Venus, where apparently it rains constantly, except for one hour every seven years. So there's this girl (Margot, I think), and it's the day where there will be an hour without rain, but some dipshit bully locks her in the closet and she misses the sun, and will have to wait another seven years to try to see it again.
Um, so I guess I'm Margot, and my closets are my classes full of complaining kids. Let's go with that.
Anyhow, just a few things you might think are interesting:
--I went to Panama. I went with Angela. I had to renew my visa again. I'll put up a few pictures soon, but don't worry, there won't be a long-ass story like the time I went to Nicaragua.
--Speaking of Nicaragua, Primitivo died recently. If you remember, he was the old man in the pictures. When I got back from Panama, Samuel was gone, and they told me he'd gone to a funeral for his father-in-law. So, just in case you were following that story, I thought you might want to know.
--Also, I've been working more on . I don't have the wedding pictures yet, because I'm still waiting on a disc of pictures to be sent from the U.S. But that'll be next. For now, I've got some Costa Rica pictures from 2006 and 2007, as well as a "mixed bag" picture page. Check them out sometime if you get the chance. Who knows, you might be in there!
That's about it for now. Sorry I've not written anything recently, but things have been pretty busy.
Take care.

Hi Ryan,

good to hear from you again. I keep checking your blog and get quite disappointed when there is nothing new.
It is raining in Germany as well, so don't be too sorry.
Allways looking forward to the next

Hi Maj,
Thanks for the comment. I've probably over-documented my internet woes here, but suffice it to say, I certainly wish I had more access to post more things. I'll try to continue the struggle!
