A Sabado Excursion

Today, was a well needed dose of familiarity. It maybe small, but we are feeling right now that there is so much that is drastically different than home, we really get excited about anything that vaguely resembles the US. I'm sure things will become more familiar here in a short while the more we get accustomed to the ways and expecially when we move to the jungle were we have to get used to that which is even less familiar. But, right now Arequipa is proving to be an excellent launching pad for us as our living situations because as we continually move to smaller and smaller cities we will have less that is familiar.

What I'm speaking of, is this morning's trip to Cuzco Coffee Company near the center of town. It was started by a woman from San Diego and felt very familiar to Starbucks. The coffee wasn't half bad, I recommend the iced coffee because it's twice the size of the hot. We met the 40/40's there and then toured through the near by 400 year old Santa Catalina Monestary. The day was quite relaxing and we absolutely love the 40/40's and each of them is a gem. God is going to use their gifts in tremendous ways.

Thank you all for your prayers, I am feeling much better, and my Ameba "La Chuga (that's what the 40/40's have named it)" and my gobs of bacteria are doing great. The visit to the "emergencia" was a memberable experience and proved to be a wise decision. I've never had a flue that didn't start getting slowly better after a few days which this never did. I'm very excited to report that I'm feeling much better. God is Good.
