The rainy season has started and since we continue to walk everywhere our umbrellas are getting a good workout. We did manage to get our exercise in. Susan made it to La Petxina and I made it to Neogym. On my way to the gym I stopped off at a computer repair shop and had them up the RAM on my MacBook Pro to 8GB. I am hopeful that doubling the RAM will make the computer run a bit faster. It cost me 57 Euros for the two memory modules and the installation. Installation is fairly easy. You unscrew the base of the computer, remove the old modules and slide in the new ones. It took all of three minutes. The Apple Store in town wanted 200 Euros for the RAM plus a charge for installation. I also would have had to leave the computer with them for two or three days.
We had lunch at home and relaxed for the rest of the afternoon. I had a CIVAC meeting where the topic for the evening was The Torn and Restored Card. There were several interesting presentations. Afterward eight of us went in search of a beer and a sandwich. We talked about things magical until 11:30 and then we headed our separate ways.
It appears that our ship will come in this week. For the last week or so we have been in constant touch with the moving company that will deliver our goods. It appears that they will arrive at customs on Thursday or Friday and once they clear customs they will be delivered to us. So next week we will get to stuff the turkey and un-stuff the boxes. It should be fun.
