We have arrived! It has taken a few days of intense traveling but finally we have an apartment and are not homeless any longer. Our travels began on Wednesday as we began waiting in for our flight in Detroit. We left Windsor quite early, knowing that we would have to wait at the US border as the assesseded our ability to enter the country. After about an hour wait for the border guard we made our way to the Detroit airport. We then somehow got our eminence amount of baggage to the checkin counter and made our way through security and to our gate.

Once we arrived in Manchester we had to wait for a taxi cab to take us to our hotel. I actually did not know if we would be able to fit all of our stuff into one cab, but somehow we made it.

We bought a baby computer program for Anya and she really enjoyed sitting on the bed in our hotel in Manchester and playing the game with her feet.

Aberystwyth is a cost town with a really pretty beach- Both yesterday and today we spent the walking around the town checking stuff out. Miss Anya enjoyed her time in her stroller, all fuzzy and warm.

Our apartment is up on one of the hills, with a really great view of the town and the ocean.

So far we are really enjoying it here and we are totally excited for the coming year. Stay tuned for many more pictures of Aberystwyth and other European locations.

Yeah, Pinette! It's me, the girl (now a woman) formally known as Sister Gillette. Found your blog by going to, then the mission website, and so on. Long story short, good to see you are doing well. Anya is adorable. I'll have to check back and see what's happening. Best of luck in Wales!
