Old Friends, New Friends...

...Short friends, Puke(ing) friends...

So last Saturday (14th) we went to the downtown metropolis to meet Rina, a girl I met 2 years ago here. She is in law school and we have been busy learning a foreign language and all, so last Saturday was the first time we had a chance to meet up. And what a reunion it was!

Here is Rina, me, and her younger sister posing in the mall where we rendezvoused- Both girls are beautiful! (and somewhat shorter than me too). The green box things hanging behind us are big versions of the ones made from palms that they cook rice in for their upcoming holiday. You can buy a light strand of them- like pumpkin lights at Halloween, or chili-pepper lights if you're from Texas...

This is us standing in front of, what used to be, the world's tallest buildings....until last year... (if you're a frequent visitor to our blog you may recognize it as a familiar site ==>)

And this is Anthony and Rina's little brother as we were taking a hop on a bus to a cheaper place to shop...the mall pictured above has, for example, a "Tiffany & Co."...that's a wee bit out of our price range.

Our new friends just arrived from the states yesterday to come work with the same sports company as us...

This is them, the "Kings," (as I have so affectionately nicknamed them). Don't they look great after 30 hours of traveling? I think so. The smile on Mr. King's face wasn't just because I was snapping his picture like a paparrazi. No. The real reason was because of this...

a sweetastic banner. Our boss's kids all call us "Uncle" or "Aunt"...they don't get to see their real one's that often. It's fun, though it did add a little tongue twisting as all their names start with "K" -and we already had 5 "K" neices and nephew...now we have 5 more. Our boss just numbers them "K1 - K5"...I believe K2 and K3 are holding the banner. Hopefully the banner will bring them comfort as they have already caught a mini-tummy bug (Hence the last piece of my introduction teazer)

Love the blog guys. Thanks for swinging by and catching up on my life too.

I was in the middle of a serious conversation with a friend on instant messager and cracked up when I saw the last picture from your Gila Week. Funny stuff.

sharon, this comment has nothing to do with your most recent blog entry (although i did read it); it is more of a response to your comment on my blog!
anyways, i wanted to tell u earlier that i give u and anthony props for using anything to get rid of the ants --even if it is glass cleaner. here we don't do anything. i just give them free-reign of the kitchen. if we don't want the ants to get something we just put it in the fridge!
last night i asked jacob, "where does your mom keep the cinnamon?" he replies, "in the freeze"---"OF COURSE", i say, "i almost forgot, we do live in PERU" if the ants don't get our goodies the humidity does!
anyways...as always i love ya'll's blogs and thanks for reading mine!
