Jadzia has been keeping a notebook of her adventures in Bolivia. She wrote the following for “the public” to read on the blog:
We went and visited Tia Eliza and Tia Lucy.
They shared a dog family. “Lucky” and “Oso” were newborns. The dogs’ mom bit Josie when she passed the family.
They had cable, so Josie, Joseph, Ludi and Lucky watched some goofy shows where robots danced and said “Eee oo ah oo” and other noises, The robots lost their teeth too. They walked like in the picture below (on Disney channel).
Jadzia and Ludi brought two harmonicas so they could both play harmonicas with Don Hector.
I shot some video and edited on the iPad. It’s sort of an experiment to see how much the iPad can handle (it’s 1080p video) and how long it takes to upload. The video was only a minute and a half, and the iPad was fine with it. Bt the u/l was quite slow. It did complete, though, so here it is. Enjoy!
We arrived yesterday after a long flight. Jadzia did well on both legs of the flight and in the airports. We were surprised.
When we got to Bolivia, Yoli’s mom and two of her sisters were there to greet us. Unfortunately after such a long trip, I don’t think Jadzia was ready for anymore new people or things. She cried for a long time. We eventually calmed her down and were able to nap a few hours (neither of us got much sleep on the plane, unlike Jadzia).
Since then, Jadzia has done well. She’s met her grandparents, some aunts and uncles, and some cousins. I can tell the weather is a bit warm for her, but she’s doing well.
An interesting note: In the U.S. almost everyone would tell us how much Jadzia looked like Yoli. Here, it’s different. They all say how much she looks like ME! Go figure.
I would like to write more, but this internet cafe is really awful and I’ve already lost this entry once and had to re-write it. When we find a better cafe, I’ll post more. Anyway, we’re safe and sound. Hope you are, as well!
P.S. I am pretty dumb. I left both my computer’s power cable and the iPod’s firewire cable at home. I’m not sure yet if I’ll buy replacements (or be able to find them)
