Arrived Safely in Bolivia

Kathy and I have now arrived safely in La Paz, Bolivia.  Guillermo, the president of the church put us up in a small apartment that he owns until we can get a place of our own.  The apartment does not have internet service, however.  So I am writing this from the hotel where Missionary Lorenzo is staying. Guillermo promised that he would get us set up with internet service soon.  The apartment also does not have a phone.  We purchased a cheap cell phone, but still have to get it registered before we can use it.  

Our first day of activities include:
  • Installing Wireless USB internet connection -- it is slow, but workable  
  • Registering our cell phone
  • Finding out that our residence visa paperwork will take at least one month to process
  • Receiving a personal guia (guide) from Guillermo to accompany us on all our errands to receive our visa
  • Meeting the lawyer who will be helping us get our visa
  • Making copies of passports, getting photos taken, etc... for visa paperwork
  • Meeting with the lawyer again to get started on obtaining the two required good conduct certificates for our visa
