The flights went smoothly, we found everyone in Houston, and we met Samuel and Charity (and Baby Benjamin) when they picked us up at the airport. It looks like it’s going to be a great week!
Right now the laptop is propped on top of the washer and dryer, which is in a little open space between the two parts of the house (Kevin & I are staying in the “maid’s quarters”). The washer and dryer are in a dry area, but the area between the maid’s quarters and the main house is not roofed, and the rain is dripping in. Occasionally, a drip will splash up to my ankles. It’s rainy season, so we’ll be expecting rain showers every night. When we arrived, though, the weather was beautiful. It was dark already, so we haven’t seen too much of the countryside. Tomorrow will start with a site visit, and then we’re going to hike up the local volcano. There’s church and meetings with the board planned for Sunday, and then surveying and designing starts on Monday.
I’ll try to keep you posted!
