Well, I hope everyone has had a chance to check out the pictures I put up from Machupicchu. They’re worth the time.
First week back was interesting. It seemed REALLY long while it was happening, but looking back it wasn’t all that bad. The weekend was eventful – Alan had Lasik sugery on Friday, and his vision is a bit blurry right now, but it looks like it was successful. Thank you Alan for doing the trial run for me – my turn next! How can I say no – it’s about 1/4 the price it would cost back home, and it was invented down here – they have a pretty good idea what they’re doing.
Saturday a few of us went downtown for various reasons – some of us had shirts made for us (we get to pick those up next week), and I was looking for wedding present stuff for Jeff and Tanya. Just in case they check, I’m not saying what it is :) The eventful part of it was Robert getting pickpocketed – someone spit on him from a window above, and while he was dealing with mucous on his shirt he had his wallet swiped. I was close enough that I knew something was up before he lost it, but it all happened too fast. Here’s the interesting part though…I tried to follow one of the women involved in it up the street, but that didn’t work. While we were standing around trying to figure out what to do, one of the guys involved walked up and handed Robert his wallet. Yes, you read that right. His money was gone, but everything else was still in it. We were a little stunned, to say the least, and the guy took off down the street and hopped on a bus. Very, very odd.
Sunday we all got together at Alan’s so we could all show our pictures from Christmas vacation – some really great ones from both Alan and Zak.
That’s it for now, I’m heading up to Canada on Friday for Mallany’s wedding, so it may be a while until I post again – but when I do, there will be pictures!
