After a long 20 hour trip, from Seattle to Dallas, Dallas to Santiago Chile, and finally Santiago to Cordoba, we are here in the hotel, in the city of Cordoba, safe and sound. All of my worry was for nothing concerning whether we were going to be able to get all the donations through customs. We had no problem whatsoever….the customs form even specifically said that there is no tax on or need to declare “used clothing or objects.” WHAT A RELIEF! We successfully got 300 pounds of donations for the elders into the country without any hassle. HOORAY! MISSION COMPLETE!

The flights went well, except the flight to Chile was a little late and we ended up only having a half hour before our plane to Cordoba left, and when we got to security for international connecting flights, Eason, the 16-year-old family friend traveling with us, realized he had left his passport in the seat pocket on the other airplane! So we ran back, they held the plane for us, got the passport and finally got safely onto our flight to Cordoba. It was definitely a close one.

The weather is like Seattle today….cloudy and cool, although no rain. We are 4 hours ahead so I’m about ready for a little nap because tonight we are having a welcome party for us at the Asamblea, which is a clinic where I first volunteered before being set up with the Geriatrico San Jorge when I was here last year. So hopefully all my friends will be there to eat empanadas, drink some yummy Argentine wine and beer, and of course catch up on what’s going on. Stay tuned!
