On Saturday, we volunteers were invited as guests of honor to the anniversary of the mini-cooperative (for students who didn't get into the student food cooperatives but still want to pool the money they have for meals). It was a generous privilege for them to offer us, not just because of the luscious porketarian meal shown here (con oca y camote también), nor for the fork, knife and plate we were given to use (normally we bring own bowl and spoon), but because we got to sit at a table! (The mini-cooperative is saving up their money for some tables. And then maybe chairs.) There was a little speech, plenty of good will, and happy full bellies. And yes the table was waaaay too high, as you can see, but it didn't dampen our spirits at all.

It's truly been a pleasure spending time reading your blog and getting just a glimpse (and oh how well-taken those pictured glimpes are!) of what has been filling your life recently. I've been without Internet for nearly 3 weeks and WIFI has just been installed in our dorm!!! Incredible this immediate connection to those outside this Park!!!

When do you plan to return to the States? I'm sure that you'll be extremely busy, but I just wanted you to know that I would love to host you here at Yellowstone, if ever you were able to make it out here before Grad School begins.

I leave the Park 15 August and embark for my journey in Korea (yes, I did say Korea, not China) on August 22nd.

Wishing you the best mi amigo carino!
