Sammie and I have had two lovely days of combined rest and productivity. We have gotten our laundry done and learned a few key things about the lavanderia next door in the process! We re-did orientation and welcome documents for the team, ran (that is walked in order to do) several errands, saw several interesting sites and ate a good mid-day meal. Later on we met friends for delicious ice cream.
All this as our comrades travel here from around the United States and Canada. This year the states/provinces represented include Montana, Idaho, Colorado, New Hampshire, Tennessee, Minnesota, California and Quebec. Their rooms are ready for the teams arrival in the wee hours of tomorrow morning – Tamara will rise to meet them when a phone call notifies her that they have left the airport. Sunday will be a rest/sightseeing/settle-in day with a team meeting in the evening in preparation for working Monday morning.
