The British Virgin Islands

We went on a fabulous vacation January 1-9. Nate and I spent New Year's Eve in Chicago before boarding a plane to San Juan, PR at 8 am on January 1. We enjoyed the humidity in the San Juan airport before catching a small plane to Tortolla where we met up with the rest of my family - everyone was there!

After 2 nights on land and a few competitive volleyball games, we packed our catamaran sailboat and departed for 5 nights on the water. We had a wonderful time - lots of photography, reading, gaming (Bonanza! & Citadels), chatting and (of course) good food and drinks.

When we returned to the cold on January 9, we felt refreshed and ready to get back to real life.

Looking for a Ugandan Husband?

Last December, before Nate and I left Uganda, I promised two friends - Michael and Gordan - that I would try to help them find American wives. It's ridiculous that I have not posted their pictures yet, but here they are - 2 great guys in their mid-twenties. Email them if you want to learn more about them! Michael can be reached at and he can also give you Gordan's email address.
