Actually, it's the last San Cristóbal post for a while
Wow, what a busy day! Wrapping up all the loose ends, getting Chompita's paper work, teaching (the Lovely Mona had two flute classes at Instituto Episcopal San Cristóbal and I gave a lecture on how the Church in England became the Church of England to high schoolers at the same school). Cleaning up the office at la parroquia and giving final instructions. Later tonight I'll pack up the computer, move all the maletas into the living room, and we're off to the airport very very early. We should arrive at LAX around 5:00pm, and after getting Chompita through aduanas we'll rent a car and head for Fresno. I hope to see some of the San Joaquin crowd on Saturday. We'll be in Sonora from Saturday evening through Tuesday, then on to San José, where I hope to see some SJ bloggers and musicians and friends, plus my sister and her kids and my brother and his kids and the folks at St. Francis and all that. We head for Berkeley on International Worker's Day, for a month there. I hope to see Kirsten and I know I'm gonna see Susan S. and Mattty Boy, plus, of course, Miss Bebe. I hope to see Spocko, too! In June we're going to our place in the mountains, but we are working on a visit to the East Coast to see alla that bunch, thanks to the efforts of TELP.
Thanks to everyone who bought stuff at the Store of Love (which remains open during the sabbatical) and donated to our missionary fund and the great Refreshment Campaign of Madpriest and Revda. Kaeton.
So, here are some photos of the Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday at Parroquia San Cristóbal, the best Church in the world.
