There's a little part in me that's tempted to throw a fit at this system that feels completely nuts to me, but after 5 months that part is (fortunately) shrinking day by day. My first thought was "WHAT?!?!?" My second thought, the one I vocalized, was "Yes, Lord." We'll take this as a blessing. There were a few little problems with moving in today after all, like the fact that they hadn't finished laying the parquet flooring, the closet system wasn't installed, we don't have a fridge yet, etc.
I think the housekeeper here at the SAM Guest House is a little miffed at the idea of having the yard overtaken with furniture for two more days. She has Tim on the phone right now calling other moving people. So maybe we'll have another update soon.
PS- That didn't take long. Tim found someone willing to come at 2 today. I'm not 100% certain this is actually going to happen, but I'm chuckling anyway. Another facet of the Peruvian "system": you can hire a moving van the day you want to move.
