The Hacienda

We just found a house to rent (we´ll post pictures soon) but we wanted to show where we were staying in the meantime. We stayed in the Hacienda which normally houses the Interns on our team and short term teams that come to Bolivia. It is up in the woods a bit so it is very peaceful and surrounded by many chirping birds. I loved getting up in the mornings and taking some time to read in the hammocks before the day started. Very peaceful. We are happy to settle into a place of our own but we loved being at the Hacienda and getting to spend time with Michelle, Jaclyn, Kristin, Justin (the Interns) and the North Park team that was here last week.
Here are some pictures...

The upstairs porch. I love the hammocks.

Our room. Yep, bunk beds.
Sorry about the delay in posts...(Dave) takes us a while to get them together. The other day I tried to upload some photos and waited about a half an hour but then it just failed anyway. It can be frustrating. We still do all our internetting (not a word?) from internet cafes. Once we get internet in our house it will be more frequent. I promise...we have a lot to share.

You better you remember where I live? I'll fill you in: Mason City, IOWA. I have to live vicariously through others. But good post! Keep up the good work.

Who got the turtles and stars blanket? That's the one I would've wanted. Love you, read my email.
