I promised to get my contact info out to my mom weeks ago, and also to some of you! So here it is,
(it looks US, and it is, but they have people coming from there so frequently that that's how they do the mail here! We do pay a bit to receive it, so please... if it weighs like a brick, it must be gold! ; )

email as usual: firstname.lastname@example.org
blog: clearly.... www.birdieamber.blogspot.com
phone: 0019545386110 ext: 3431 (that's my room #)
(it is a US number, so it's like you calling the States.
I can also call you, cause they sell us fairly reasonable calling cards here, just let me know when!)
We are I believe 6hrs now ahead of Alberta, since daylight savings.
Some of you have asked about donating and there is actually a very easy way, and it is superly appreciated.
If you do it through the website, you get a TaX ReCeiT! yay.
You just go to
--> donate now
--> donate to crew fees
--> Project #: 3253 (at some point it will ask you for a project number. If you quote my project number it helps towards the work that I am doing here. Once my costs have been reached, it goes towards the rest of the work here on the Africa Mercy. You can also designate it to other specific needs of your choice.) Thanks to all of you who decide to pitch in!
Just to give you a quick idea:
Monthly crew fees: We each pay to be here, around $700 per month to cover our living expenses on the ship.I will be here just over 3 months this time around.
Lost wages... we won't go there, cause that's not what it's really about.
