Canada, Eh?

Those ten days went by so quickly!
The Project Mexico crew officially arrived in Canada at some obscure hour this morning. The Victoria crew caught the 9am ferry to Victoria and then Mark N, Peter Choi, Tony, Andrew, Gabe, and I made a trek to Tim Hortons to celebrate being in Canada again. Now I'm back at UBC and I don't think I've ever been so grateful to have electricity and hot showers, although I did really enjoyed the "simple life" in Mexico and I hope I can go back for a Project Mexico 2007 trip.

Many thanks to everyone who supported us, especially Mark and Kimberley for picking us up at the train station so early in the morning, and the Choi family for letting us take over their living room :)

Biss, last I heard I *think* he was going to the airport with Tony and Andrew and then crashing at Mark N.'s place, where Dan was also staying.

We will have a blog up with pictures soon, after we get accustomed to sleeping in beds at room temperature again. Also, plans are underway to have a video made up to show during coffee hour at the different parishes that were involved.

Thank you all for your prayers that have made the trip such a success and blessing.

I look forward to seeing many of you at the retreat this weekend!

Has Gabe been found? I'm just wondering. He was extremely relaxed and a little incoherent when we left him snuggled up at Peter and Judy's.

Somebody, anybody?... Gabe ....

Hope the rest of you are snuggling back into your respective homes. It was fun getting to witness the sleep deprived induced sillyness of the last leg of the journey.

Sound sleeps to you all!
Yeah the weekends going to be so enjoyable, Mira. Let us know if rides are indeed needed, and what time.

I managed to make it through English class yesterday, but then I slept for 15 hours!!! Wow, was that ever some good sleep.
