A quick coffee & breakfast. A stop at the post office to pick up the first letter delivered to me here in Vilcabamba. A very endearing card from my Sarah inside along with a picture of her and my mom. Plus a picture of me when I was much younger.

Slow bus ride into Loja. A stop in at the Immigration office and then on to the Notary.

Walked around oja for almost 2 hours waiting for the notary to come back to his office. People here take long leisurely lunches. Good for the digestion.

Shower and short rest before Thomas, Pat and I meet up with Alison at Cafe Cultura for asian fare. Mark is there with Josh and Irena. The meal is a delight to my palate, Alison is feeling under the weather and still great company.

As Pat and I walk back to the meditation we connect with Karen who is similarly not feeling well.
