Early Christmas in Swaziland

2 packages from Mom come in the mail, basically Mom & Dad did a great job filling my order of needs. Nothing terrible important but many little things like computer dial up connection for laptop that doesn't have an old school phone line jack in it, carbiners for hanging stuff in my place, American snacks and lots of coaching type stuff plus a LA Galaxy t shirts, a Beckham jeresy and US World Cup soccer shirt. Plus Time magazines,zip lock bags.

A big thank you to MOM & DAD. THANKS.

Then I had a site inspection by PC Staff just seeing our places and an interview. I gave them a piece of my mind and opinion on a lots of things. I am finding that I am very critical the many methods of the PC here in Swaziland. They also delivered to me letters from home (a much delayed birthday card). And a nice one from Liz.
