Ehsan, Dylan and I arrived safe and sound in Guatemala City at 6:25 this morning. All of our supplies made it intact, and we we're able to get everything through customs after giving the customs officials a demonstration of the OpenSocket.

We spent the rest of the day preparing, and staging for our work this week. This included a trip to Wal-Mart in Guatemala City for food, and some bedding materials. While Wal-Mart in the United States is known for low prices, in Guatemala the main clientel is upper-middle class families.

We crammed all of our OpenSockets, tools, food, and bedding into Jonathan's one-room apartment. Jonathan's apartment will be our main base of operations for the next few days.

For dinner, we grabbed some awesome Dominos pizza and Ice Cream.
