Good News!

It has basically been the best week ever. Why you ask?

--Dad is home from the hospital and is on the mend!

--No more malaria!

--I ran for the first time in Africa! Feels good to be developing a rhythm of life here in Kitwe.

--I played Settlers of Cattan with my neighbors (don't worry Roberts and Tennant folks-- my heart will always be devoted to you)

--And the best part? I got a letter from my cousin and a package in the mail from my sister! Thanks! Tam, I've already eaten all the fruit gushers. This pic is of some of my co-workers admiring the package from home. Don't worry! I've shared.

Some of you have asked for the mailing address:
Carmen Goetschius
c/o The Director
PO Box 23054

If you are ever in Zambia, feel free to stop by.

Hoooraay for packages from home! We just got one a few days ago, however we are jealous of your Zoolander score. We (only) got nuts, chocolate chips and taco seasoning! Although, at the night market on Tues. we did procure HBO's "Six feet under" series. I'm sure it's all legal.... and cost a mere $8 for the entire first season. Glad to hear you're doing better. Great smile!

Oooh! I wanna send you a package. But I don't know how I will outdo Blue Steel. What are you craving? What can I send that will make it through the mail? How long does it take to get there?

Oh, you must be feeling WAY better - this is classic Carmen. I can hear you "speaking" every word in this post. No more Malaria - sweet. Next time we're in Zambia, Owen and I will swing in for a visit. Hehe =)
