This country, town, and the Arteles facility are beautiful. So happy to be here. Finally starting to feel settled, a week in. Jet lag was (is) hard to shake, but getting better every day. Received one of two packages I mailed to myself thus far - they got stuck in customs separately. Fortunately I have plenty of materials (from my checked baggage and the first package) to stay productive in the meantime. Ahhh it is so great here, I feel so fortunate. I know I'll probably be ready to come home by the end of the month, and there is a particular person I'm already missing greatly, but I am really enjoying my time here. Big thanks to everyone who helped me make this work!
