I am doing a few weeks of voluntary work at an environmental learning centre in Central America. For gardening and teaching some local women some felting and other textile crafts, and to update the centre's website. It is a very interesting place, and the programmes are quite impressive. There are 8 volunteers here I think, two of us are twenty nine, and the rest are in their early to mid 20s.
The website does better justice to the huge undertaking this has been: http://www.learningcentercostarica.org/

My 25 year old daughter Erin and I are leaving for New Zealand on November 15 from Toronto, Ontario Canada. She hopes to find enough money to attend university in Wellington after Christmas: we shall see how that works out.
We will be meeting lots of relatives on my father's side for the first time! We are very excited to meet everyone first,(who looks like whom? How else are we similar?) then see what everyday life as a KIWI is like.. with some side trips thrown in too.
I am really looking forward to the days being longer than up here in the northern hemisphere this time of year.
