Today was very overcast and unusually cool. It rained off and on, but mostly felt damp and chilly. Unusual for it to be that chilly during the day. Even with the gray overcast skies, people were strolling leisurely down the streets.
We are definitely making progress with what we are arranging, although some things are easier than others. For example, we are unable to open a J
EP account due to not having our Social Security cards available. They would not accept a letter from the Social Security Administration showing what we receive, it must be the actual card. If they are thinking that it is a picture ID, they will be in for a surprise.
There was success, however, when we were able to obtain Direct TV and on Thursday our internet service will be installed. The big news is that tomorrow morning we will have a van pick us and our luggage up from the home of our gracious hostess and will be delivered to our new home. We can’t wait to get there.
Heather has been a very gracious hostess who has gone far beyond what we would have expected. We appreciate so much all she has done for us and her help in getting our feet on the ground. However, we feel that two weeks is long enough and she needs to have here space back and get back to her normal routine. We have disrupted her life enough. Thank you Heather Peden for all you have done for us and more. Somehow, just saying thank you doesn’t seem to be enough.
Tomorrow we will celebrate July 4th in our new home where we will be able to view the fireworks shot off all over the city. Cuenca holds a big 4th of July celebration to thank the expats for all that they do for their communities and for making Cuenca their home.
Hope all back in the States have a safe and non-violent Fourth of July. Happy Birthday America! And a big Happy Canada Day to our Canadian neighbors. Until next time my friends,
Terri at the Drakes Nest
