Temporary Disconnect

Hi guys,

I´m afraid the blog won´t be updated for a while. We aren´t supposed to have them until Dec. 8th after swearing in. It´s a lot harder to be so far from home than I expected, so letters are going to be really valuable. If you happen to have a cheap calling card or feel like texting me, my new cell number is 011258 825 156 362. I probably won´t have it on all the time, but weekends in the evening are your best bet. I am six hours later than you guys (ie. 2pm for you is 8pm for me).

If you do by chance send packages here are some tips:
--write Educational materials on the customs slips, and undervalue everything
--write your favorite bible verse or "jesus saves," all over the packaging
--send things in padded envelopes instead of boxes
--don´t send anything valuable
--do not by any means write clothing, as this is the #1 stolen item
All of these should help avoid things being lost or stolen, and should decrease the taxes.

Love to all, and wish me courage and strength,

Laura

Hey, don't stop writing!!! I want to hear what's goin on and what it's like to live and study in Maputo. If you can't blog, then email! Everything is fine in C'ville. Liz and I are holding down the fort. Fall is here and like always it is crisp and succulant :) Ioana's talk of food made me do it.
