Reasons why I havent updated...

1. Nothin new to say regarding the demo plot or garden.  Its business as usual.

2. I havent been anywhere different or interesting.  I did fall on a cactus up on the cerro, which fulfilled a desire I never knew I had to re-enact a Wile Coyote scene.
3. I had a medical check-up... OH THIS IS INTERESTING.  So I went to the dentist, and I will be the first to admit I am not always excellent at brusing my teeth.  I like to eat late at night and the water spicket is far away.  Theres a lot of bugs between my bed and the spicket, and Im not a fan.  So I was concerned about the dentist visit, as I have never had a cavity and would like to continue that streak.  No cavities!  But I did have to hear some weird stories about former patients of the dentist.  Apparently "Doctor/Patient Confidentiality" isnt a thing in Paraguay.  Out of all the stories he could have told me, he brings up this guy who was fat because he had a mental problem where he was "afraid to deficate." Oh the things you cannot unhear...

4. I havent cooked anything new, or bought any new foods.

5. I havent met up with any of the new PCVs in Ybycui.  Our schedules are all pretty different, so... Still kind of a loner.  But thats ok, Im more motivated to blog when I dont have anyone to talk to.  Because what this blog needs is more updates like this one where you get no beneficial information about my service.

Ok, so I AM working toward getting some interesting stuff going.  I am going to build a pig pen, Im getting a dog, Im going to be preparing for a half marathon.... So there WILL BE interesting stuff here.  Just not right now.  So enjoy this random meme and I will get back to you with something interesting.  Someday.  Somehow.   Thanks for reading!

I LOVE seeing the cerro when I open your blog. Makes me feel at home. :) I kinda miss those rolling hills of the interior, but this river sure is nice!

So, yeah, just wanted to say that I have also noticed that lack of patient/dr confidentiality, which seems to fall right in with the lack of universal precautions. I haven't heard a story quite as funny as yours, though hearing the doctors talk about their colleagues does get interesting at times. Glad you're still cavity free and that you don't have defecation issues. jajaja
