Are we going to the Amazone on diabetes duty for Government!
This is so different and exciting. Here is the poop.
The Goverment of Canada has some very learned people working for it.
They want to find out , how older diabetics do in their every day life, in tropical weather.
This group going there next month have also some other people on board with different diseases but they did run in trouble with the diabetes couple who had to cancel their participation because the man had a sudden heart attack. In the next 9 days before leaving on the Amazone Santana River Boat trip paid for by the Government, they must replace the diabetes couple by another couple.
It so happens that my son is high up in the technical field working for the Gov. for many years and rubs shoulders with the people involved with the Amazone trip. So when the problem did arise with the diabetes couple my son voluntered Johanna and I for the job as being ideal for the job mentioned.
I understand that we would have to leave by the first day of next month, a bit sudden if you ask me.
But to miss such an oppertunity would be sinful so we accepted. We will email you all the pictures we will make and then some. We will be a bit busy getting organized for the trip, luckily we have our passports in good shape, but anyway that could have been fixed soon.
Needles to say that we have no sleep at nights but have to be in good shape to make use of this sudden oppertunity. We are making long lists of what to do and what to bring before the first of next month
when we will be picked up by a government car. We are very excited by this all and so sudden also!
Will keep you informed if we get enough time to do so!
Johanna and John alias JB.
