Take off those sandals, too!

Take off those sandals! And the blanket.

I knew I had to take my sandals off, and my watch, and all those things to pass the security point at the airport. But I didn’t expect the same for Jadzia. Guess what happened when they took her blanket… Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! Yes, she cried a lot. But they found nothing harmful about her.

Jadzia did pretty well during the trip, better than me I think. It was a little hard on me though. The flight to Miami was oversold, so we could not get an empty row. But the flight to Santa Cruz was not full, so we were very comfortable. When we arrived at the airport in La Paz, we waited there for about 90 minutes. During that time there were janitors cleaning the plane. Jadzia had her own inspection, going row by row, making sure everything was all right.

Baby #2 was busy, too; kicking a lot, especially when Jadzia was climbing my belly. Jadzia has not eaten very much. But I hope she will get better. I bought her apples today, and she ate half of one.

Today I’m visiting my sister Eliza. Her family, Sara and my Mom are here. Later I will be baking a cake for my dad’s birthday and another for my cake decorating class at El El Jordán. I hope they will turn out well. I’m so used to doing things the American way that my Bolivian instincts aren’t working well. Let’s say that so far, I haven’t found an oven with a thermometer, so I’m glad I brought mine.

I’m already having cross-cultural shocks every 5 minutes. But I’m trying to be nice and not complain. Please, pray for us, and for lower temperature. I know it is not too hot, but I would love it if it were in the 70’s.

  1. It’s good to hear from you, Canela. I’m sure Jadzia is just a bit disoriented from travelling. I can’t wait to hear how she does with her cousins. 🙂

  2. Thanks so much for writing, Yoli! I can’t wait to read each day’s tidbits about your adventures! Please tell all of your sweet family we are wishing we were there,too.
