Hello from Bogota

Dsc01350_1Just a quick hello to let everyone know I've arrived safely in Bogota.  The staff at the Habitat office here is extremely friendly and helpful, and after only one day I realize how helpless I'd be without them.  (Ever tried to consult a cell phone manual in a foreign language to swap out a SIM card?)  They keep telling me how wonderful my Spanish is - which is a clue as to how kind they are - although they got a good laugh when I told them I was pregnant.  (Colombian travel tip #17: "embarrazada" does not mean "embarrassed")

I'll be working out of this office through Tue and then heading to the worksite in Sincelejo.  Stay tuned for an update on fundraising, more pics of Bogota this weekend, and then a detailed update from the worksite next week!

Saludos, -dave
