Well, I'm here! Have been for a few days, but arrived to an apartment with no sheets and towels, a broken washing machine, and no internet connection (and no nearby internet cafe)! Finally, a few minutes ago, the internet connection was solved. Oh, and yes, we have sheets an towels. And except for the young man from the Ivory Coast banging on the front door at 1 a.m. and shouting "Californie! Californie!", things have been pretty straight forward. More later!
