So, I would like to express retroactively my apologies for not being able to blog for the last couple of months, and also to alert you all that you will not be hearing from me via this mode of communication until July. I am shipping off again for Patagonia to spend the next four months in the formation house of the movement in San Jose de Mallín Grande, to live again what I have just finished experiencing. It really is hard to put into words everything that we experienced, but I hope to write as much as possible before I take off on Tuesday, so as to justify and pacify anyone who has been estranged by my nonexistent missives.
I know this was short and probably not too sweet, but at least I can leave you with a few great photos from my time in the south. I have tons more, and Jer has tons more that are way better than mine, but unless you have facebook, you'll have to wait until July to see them. But here are a few.
|A shot of us with our tools in front of Puesto Blanco, the gaucho post where we lodged for two weeks. Zoom in for some good faces.|
|A shot of the mountains from near Guadal|
|Our group 'paseo' out of Guadal during missions|
|Nicasio Luna strumming at the final barbecue for the missionaries (lamb is roasting in the forefront)|
|Jer working his magic in the kitchen at Puesto Blanco|
|A view of the lake and the mountains from the road to Gaudal|
|Mountain view from Casa San Beda, the formation house|
|Jer and me during our Sunday afternoon paseo through the foothills|

So that's it for now, but I assure you you will get at least a few more lines of text before next Tuesday.
