after schlepping too much luggage, we broke down and paid for a taxi from the airport straight to our apartment.  the minute the taxi got to the city i had a feeling i just can’t explain.   everything is different but it feels familiar at the same time.  i love our hood, it is just out of tourist range so we feel like we really are living with the locals.  got our phone number with sim cards working, wifi worked instantly (thank you scott) even my iPhone works, seems too easy.   took a nap on our hastens bed (comfy) then forced ourselves to get up and explore the city.  the bike thing is awesome.  love what everyone is wearing while riding.  i even found a ad in the heart of the city.  tomorrow we get bikes and ride to picnic to be trained.  i am heavily involved in helping with the speakers and they just announced paul is the 2nd photographer in charge!  here we go….
