I’m back!!

I had a wonderful week in Costa Rica.  It was kind of rough, the showers were anything but hot, and I mixed concrete on the ground with a shovel all week, but it was an awesome experience.  The other people on the team were wonderful and I made some exceptional friends.  It was so beautiful and the people of Costa Rica were friendly and inviting and great.  And I got to do a zip line through the rain forest!!  It was amazing!

I can’t tell you how much the voicemails and emails meant to me when I got them yesterday, it made me feel so loved and special.  It is so awesome just to get a voicemail that says – I miss you and I just wanted you to know that.  I should call more people and tell them that I miss them. 

But really, if you want to chat I’ll be around the next couple of weeks.  I’m maybe making plans for this weekend, but I’m not sure.  We’ll see.  Right now I’m going downstairs to see what I can find to eat and then I’m going to watch prime time in the daytime.

Sidenote:  Not only was there no internet access, I didn’t see a television or a newspaper the whole week.  But Kallie sent me this – http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/8592305/ – Kusadasi is one of the towns in Turkey that Kallie and I visited last summer.  Apparently they are targeting tourists in the Aegean.  Which is terribly scary.
