FROM CHILE



This may not get out as internet connection is sketchy at best. I have heard myself called a cold-hearted bitch since my attitude is not horrified by what we have in Chile. I can tell you what they don't have. Kids losing limbs with gangrene since it took three weeks to get them. All buildings demolished. Chile has an earthquake building code since we get them nearly everyday. They don't have dump trucks filled with the dead heading to mass graves. It's rough here. Today we move to the coast with the tsunami damages.

I was asked about any problems with my yellow fever vaccine--I had flu-like symptoms fever aching muscles and a hard knot at the injection site that is still there.

No word on how much longer here.

Got bit by a green lizard on my arm. Have to take antibiotics. Try to read your blogs when internet works.

All of you take care. Hope to be home soon. Pray for no serious earthquakes causing another tsunami since we'll be on the coast.

One good thing their bitch of a president doesn't want us here any longer than necessary maybe she'll send us home.



For LOCI Fans--our Bobby does love fire.

Geez, who in their right mind would call you a cold hearted bitch after the horrors you saw in Haiti? Sheesh!

Hopefully you will be on your way home SOON!

XOXOXO

Wonder what the insulters would have made of Haiti. They just don't have a clue.

Fuck the insulters. Let them put their money where their mouth is.

You stay safe and keep your head up. I know you shy from praise but, you ARE a good person and don't let anyone tell you different!

Anyone who thinks you are a cold hearted bitch doesn't know you. And they should put themselves in your shoes.

Hope you're safe and and back home soon! Take care and know you have a lot of people thinking of you.

Considering what you've had to deal with recently, if anyone's a 'cold- hearted bitch' it's whoever called you one!

I wish you HOME, safe and sound, soon
