Dear Consolata! Your new baby has been born with a brisk walk yesterday. It has been cooling lately, and yesterday I felt the cold air in my face while walking. Today I am all sore. I'll try a little walk on Sunday. It kind of hurts. But I am happy I did it.

Love,

Jackie

Winter has just began

Tarija is located in the south border of Bolivia. We have two international borders, one with Argentina (the biggest) and one with Paraguay. La Pas, the Government site, is 1000 miles away, and Sucre, the Capital of Bolivia, is aroung 600 km away. Tarija is not very big. We only have 250,000 people. It is the most beautiful city of Bolivia, with 8 months of really nice weather and four months of winter with cold and short days, with hazy and humid cold that makes you shiver.

We have roses even in winter, so this city is beautiful even in cold times. We have beautiful crystalline rivers, some with fish (the bigger ones) some with small delicious crabs. All streets in my city have beautiful, big, very green trees, which are not found in the US, and most of them have colorful flowers. So, some years you can see all the city wearing red attires. In some other times you can see yellow, rose, lilac or purple trees all over. This is not only impressive, but very happy, just as the people here. Tarija is a place full of laughter and good times. People are friendly and there is always a party to go to in the weekends. Nightlife is not very exciting, as people like to celebrate in barbecues during the day.

The countryside is exciting, as we have the best vineyards that can be visited in a trail. In the Chaco we have 3 indigenous cultures that share the second natural gas reserves of South America. We have forests and incredible wild life. The most beautiful, colorful birds you have seen. Whenever you want to come, my house is open for you. I wanted to upload a picture but couldn't. I'll post something on my journal.

Warmly,

Jackie
