My grant proposal finally went through! The women's comitte of San Antonio, La Pastora got the money to build healthy kitchens! After over a years worth of work, i just got an email that they are building!

I know I accomplished ALOT in Peace Corps, even if this much sought after grant company never made my project possible, but it sure feels great to actually SEE a change in people's lives!

I just hope that everyone puts a plaque above their new kitchens with my name and face on it! Gracias Lilu!!!

Back in the USSA

So as I am now back in the US, I have been getting used to consumerism again. I bought this cookie jar at a flea market in DC.

I've also got an appointment to get my tattoo colored tomorrow. I'm really excited. Other than that, I'm just hanging at my mom's house in Kansas City. Anthony flies in this morning, and we will begin our visit to the midwest. I think in a few weeks we will be driving to Denver for a visit, and who knows after that. But so far...I've eaten all you can eat pancakes, a superdog, went to the Smithsonians, and visited Carnegie Hall. I'll post some photos a bit later.

Columbia or Busted

Hello all. I am now in the United States of America. I spent Christmas in DC with Anthony and his family, and went to NYC for New Years to spend some time with my ladies from Peace Corps. We had lots of fun and now I finally have some time to upload some photos from my vacation in Columbia.

We ended up visiting Bogota, Santa Marta, Tayrona National Park and Cartagena.

I seriously suggest Columbia for a vacation spot. We only had 2 weeks and I could've spent a whole month there! It rawked! We didn't have time to get to Ciudad Perdida or San Augustin. But we sure spent a lot of time going to various beaches, which was just fine with me. I worked on my tan and expanding my bathing suit.

Now I'm working on expanding my jeans. We plan on coming to KC around the 15th of January, and visiting Denver in Feb. We're gonna take Jeepster on a wild road trip throughout march, so lemme know if it's okay to crash at any and all couches!

p.s. click on the photo of me to see my pics on flickr!
