Saturday, July 9, 2005

This morning was just beautiful. I never got up to go running this morning because I actually got a great night's sleep last night. Tomorrow morning, I am going for sure, now that I know where there is a running trail. I also found a good gym just around the corner. Hopefully, I can find someone to whip me into shape. Lots of goals!

Anyway, work was tedious, as expected. Tons of meetings, including a meeting with an American woman who runs the Community Liason Office (CLO) who is from Rhode Island, 6'2, blond and blue eyed. She drives her own car with her two kids in tow and loves Colombia. An inspiration. I've been a little shy about going out after hours these past few days (can you all imagine that?).

I'm really glad today is Friday! It's been a hectic week. Unlike most Fridays in DC, I am home tonight :-) I just finished having my manicure and pedicure (yes, Danny V was right)and it only cost me $US8 and she came to my house to do it! It was the BEST manicure I ever had. It lasted two hours and she rubbed my feet for what seemed like forever. Anyway, I am trying to get settled in, but it's kind of hard without all my "things." Cable doesn't get installed till next Tuesday, so I am missing my morning CNN fix. And, yes....they have cable and high speed internet access here. It's about $US 70/month but, if you pay for 10 months (which I did), you get the last two months free. Not a bad deal. The good part about not having TV right now is that I am reading a whole lot more and trying to get up to speed on the new criminal code. It takes me so much longer to read things in Spanish. It gives me a whole new appreciation for those trying to learn another language.

After work and before my mani/pedi, I went to pick out all new furniture for my apartment. Yes, all new and made to order and the best part is I don't pay. Apparently the stuff in my apartment now is too old (3 years old) and needs a woman's touch! Well, they found the right one (no commnets from the peanut gallery, please!). I'll include some pictures of a dining room I am thinking of ordering. This is pretty cool!
Anyway, tomorrow I have my first official meeting with some supreme court judges. They are working on figuring out their new accusatory system. I think it will be a wonderful first experience, but I'll probably be up late trying to read all the materials.

Well, kind of tired. Missing you all and waiting to be your next vacation destination.

Love,
A
