I ran around today, looking for the items on my list and trying to seem organized. I managed to find a really comfortable pair of walking shoes in anticipation of those hikes we've heard about. And I went to the bank for financing. Did you realize that travelers' checks are almost history? Try to find a source!! My travel guides say that they don't use them while in Antigua and that careful banking will suffice. I hope so! I also picked up a copy of 501 Spanish verbs in anticipation of my Spanish classes. As well I picked up a carry-along card with useful phrases. I won't let that out of my sight for the first few days.
When picking up the medical supplies (Oh, I forgot. We'll be taking two suitcases with medical supplies normally discarded here in the States.), I "met" our hostess Ana in a photograph and saw some of the clinics to which these medical supplies will be taken. I hope Caroline has the opportunity to photograph these buildings. So very simple, so much needed.
