Not everyday is a good one

This will be very short...as I need to catch a bus in 20 min. Not every day is a good one...yesterday was very very hard.

I spent the day in a bus with great people...but it was 8 hours in a bus with not enough knee space and my ankles swelled up again (the 3rd day in a row and today promises the same).

I then went out to eat and the food was just ok, not as good as normal for my favorite restaraunt.

I then went to a movie and saw x-files....not a good film and the air conditioning was COLD...I think that they wanted us to feel the wintery setting of the movie.

I then went back to the hotel room with friends to discover that why we were out we had been burgled....my beloved camera, it´s special waterproof box, all of my rechargable batteries and the charger, and $60 were gone. In total we estimate a loss value of over $600 of small stuff. Not to mention that the thief also took my trust in my favorite hotel and some valuable photo memories with them. THe door had been locked and not forced, draw your own conclusions.

It was a hard day. I am ok, but thought you should know that while I do try to keep this blog on the upbeat side of life...there are hard days too. More at the end of the week when I know more. Thinking of you all today with a bit of homesickness....


PS:I am traveling to a town without cell phone signal so don´t be alarmed if you call to talk and cant get me. I will call you back.

I am so sorry that this happened. I know how much taking pictures means to you and hope that the thief got only the most recent pix. You have taken some wonderful photos. We will hope that both thief and camera can be found.
Love, Mom and Dad C.
