Heidi is settled down for another rest, setting a record for time on the hard. Dave and I arrived in Washington State last Monday late and have been busy trying to establish reliable, affordable cellular and internet communication since then – as well as checking out food sources, visiting the library, medical visits, and the like.
I am, once again, feeling a bit of culture shock from the volume of choices available in everything from food to electronics – and from the prices as well. No wonder so many people are anything but healthy. One has to have both the financial resources and the will to spend extra on healthy food. I have not really looked to see what is available on an extremely low food budget, but the things I really want are vastly outside my normal food budget – as in organic fruits and vegetables. Even the non organic are more expensive than I am used to abroad.
Still trying to figure out a schedule here. For those in the Pacific NW, please give me some idea of when we might be able to visit, as I’d love to see you if possible. (I’m currently based in Snohomish.)
Finally have decent internet here!! Better than in the Caribbean. Only about 3Mb/sec but by our standards, that’s good.
Cheers, Robn & Dave
