Settling In

Cartegena Colombia - 10 24.5N 075 32.6W
Yesterday we played Tourist with our delivery crew, shopping for Emeralds, touring the old city, museums, & churches, and being hounded by pedlers of everything. Pictures will be added to the previous few weeks posts soon, so stay tuned, and don't forget to look back at our delivery posts. I also fixed the date issue we had so we are no longer predicting the future and there are two additional posts that got archived back to 2003. This morning Chuck, Jake, and Pete left early for the airport to head home to their wives, lawnmowers, and jobs and Bill and I tackled the work list. I basically now have the security system squared away. I still some finishing details to add like the inside motion detector and the dingy sensor, but he main parts are wired though I couldn't test the outside motion detector because the ambient tempurature was around 92 degrees by the time I couldn't take it anymore at 11:30 and I don't think there was enough difference between my body temp and the background. I will test tonight when it cools off and see if it works.
In the afternoon I set the hammock up under the boom awning and relaxed for a few hours, checking e-mail, restoring lost data, and some general web browsing. I have decided that this will be my primary location from 11:30 to 15:00 most days.

Luckily the wind has picked up and the sun has dipped lower, and it is now a much more reasonable 86 degrees.
