Billy Update 072010

Hi Everyone,

It has been raining here for days. Today we woke up and left at 8:00 am for Lubra school. When we got to the fork in the river, the swollen flooded river had eroded the path that we normally take to Lubra. We briefly contemplated fording the river and trying one of the other paths on the other side of the river but decided that there were too many variables. After we decided not to go we saw one of the teachers from the school and he reaffirmed our decision telling us that it was too dangerous and told us not to go. We will try again the day after tomorrow in hopes that the river may have subsided.
