We made it safely to Asuncion, Paraguay last Tuesday.  Our initial impression is a positive one, although Paraguay is obviously different than the United States and will require some acclimation.  I have been offline for the past few days and have intermittent Internet access since I arrived.  I may not have access at home for about a week.  As it is, the Internet here is relatively slow with top speeds of 256-512 kbps (no, not megabytes, kilobytes).  I wanted to post a short entry to let you know that we’re alive and doing OK here in Paraguay.  I will try to write again soon.

    I’m sorry to hear about your grandmother  – the note you posted a few days ago. I hope you are in a situation where you can only grieve and not also be involved in the estate settlement while long distance in a foriegn country. Having the estate burden would be onorous while you greive. I hope nothing broke in the move. My parents always held their breath to find out what broke, not if something broke. Enjoy Paraguay. It’s not Bagdad thank heaven. Keep us posted.
