3/3/10 - Hit the ground running!
We hit the ground running today, after getting to Father's House at about 11:30pm last night. No problems with immigration or customs, and our bags came right out! Go figure... And Rick came with Suzanne to pick us up, which was great.
Anyway... Today we rode a boda! Twice! (see the picture above of a woman on a boda in the mud... and picture Suzanne and me sharing one!) And lived to tell about it. On the way back to the tire store, the boda driver took us through the edge of the slums, down a muddy, narrow path, passing chickens and naked children... I just hung on and prayed we'd get where we were going!!
We arrived to no power - the transformer went out 9 days ago. Thank goodness for the headlamps I brought! One thing it means, aside from no internet, is LOTS of grocery shopping!
