Still homeless

So we are still living living with Spies. We were planning on moving into our new house this past Wednesday but it got pushed back to Friday. So we show up at our new house on Friday with all of our stuff but unfortunately there were some problems between the owner and the past renter. Long story short, we ended up sitting outside of the house for five hours and weren't able to move in. Such is life in Bolivia. We are hoping to hear something on Monday and then we should have a better idea of when we can move in for real. We just hope it works out soon but maybe we should just hope that it works out at all. The Spies have been very nice to up with us for so long.

Last week we were able to go to the jungle for a night with our team. We went with the purpose of planning for 2009 and to get away from the worst days of Carnival. The thing about Carnival that is good to get away from is the incessant water balloons and water guns being directed at you when you walk anywhere in the city. So we went for a night to Chapare and had a good time with our team. Here are a few pics...


Matt and Lily Spies on the way there.

We had a little friend in our room when we got there. And the camera is zoomed so you can't really tell how big it is but it was about 3 inches long...no joke.

the water balloon thing cracks me up, i wish i could witness it. i'm sure it would get annoying after a while though! bummer that you didn't get to move in but at least you like nate and kate. and i'm glad you have some pseudo-nieces while you are there :) we miss you! gwen wants to talk to you every time we are at mom and dads. she resorted to talking to dada on monday.
