Admittedly, coffee is best here when it comes from an expresso machine
where the water is heated under pressure - perhaps a lesson for PCR.
Well, thanking all the people on the list who have contributed is
about # 8 on my "to-do" list for today, but I'll jump ahead to
it now. We have also been amazed at the number of interesting
suggestions that have been posted and are very appreciative! The
PCR machine is somewhere between the US and Quito right now and
in a day or so we will start the process of getting it out of
customs (should a similar fate never befall any of you!). I hope
we can try out PCR at 3058 masl within 2 wks.
Again, many thanks for the suggestions!
