Photos # 1 – Not long after arrival

Thursday, March 30th, 2006

Here are some photos taken back in December, shortly after Deb’s arrival.

These photos are a bit large, but there is a lot of detail, especially in the background, that you may want to see. Hope you don’t mind!

Dec 7, 2005 – Deb at the door of her tukel. This was before its outside was redecorated, along with the others in the cathedral compound, for the arrival of the visitors from Missouri in February. At Deb’s feet is the roll-up solar collector that charges her satellite phone, camera, and PDA.

About that e-mail Address

Saturday, March 25th, 2006

Father Dan and I have given some thought to the question of posting Deb’s e-mail address. We decided not to do this as doing so on a blog often results in a lot of spam going to it. When Deb downloads her e-mail it is through the satellite phone, so there is a cost to do this. We don’t want to run this up by making her get a lot of spam. If you want to send her a message ask Fr. Dan or Ron and we will get the address to you. We also ask you to keep any message short and to the point. Please don’t send attached photos or documents, jokes, or long messages, however thoughtful. These should be saved for when she returns, when I’m sure she will have lots of thoughtful things to discuss herself.
