Short Interim Report
So much to tell, so little time to write! The move was a major effort (not over yet). The trip to Montevideo and then our short jaunts to Buenos Aires and Punta del Este were fantastic and event filled. The children’s first days at school have been blessed and Tamara is entering into her important role in school while trying to make sure we have something to eat at night using a minimum of kitchen tools (not that I could name the implements she uses to do her magic – spatula? That’s the flat thing?)
A visual record of some of the above can be found on Tamara’s Facebook page (who needs to talk when you have Facebook?)
In my work, we are in high gear getting ready for the High Holidays. I’m also dealing with the local bureaucracy and in a strange twist of logic I went to get a tetanus shot in order to release our incoming container from customs. You see, I can only bring in a container (tax-free) if I’m going to reside here. If I’m going to reside I need resident status. In order to get resident status I need to have a clean bill of health. In order to have a clean bill of health, besides checking height, weight, blood-pressure, blood and urine and answering some health questions I need to be up-to-date on my tetanus shots. Ergo, I needed a tetanus shot to release my possessions from customs.
I hope to write in more depth about a lot of the above, but the sands of time are slipping through my fingers and I’m only sending this brief post to assure readers that we are still alive and very well in our unfolding adventure in the Southern Hemisphere.
Until the next report!
