This is Alicia driving Karen's four wheeler back for the 2nd time ever in her life after steaming around midnight. This shot was actually captured only moments before she was pulled over by the Village Police Officer for carrying a rider on the front of 'her' machine (Karen)! Hilarious, this was a the first time any of us including Karen had ever been 'pulled over' in Quinhagak. It basically consisted of VPO Jerome slowly creeping up behind us then along side of us until we were forced to pull over to see who the crazy driver was trying to edge us off the road. Luckily she didn't receive a ticket, just a warning and reprimand for Karen to get off the front and climb on back. Oddly enough you can fit as many people as possible on the back of your 'honda' and not be in danger of getting pulled over. Even though every wheeler in town has a caution sticker posted visibly somewhere that reads: DO NOT RIDE ON REAR BARS OF ATV OR CARRY RIDERS OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT... etc I guess riding in the front is just pushing the envelop a little too much even for Quinhagak:)
Anyway it made all of us crack up at Alicia's expense;)
The Wacky Olympics were back by popular demand! Nice work Steph putting it all together. You can see the human pyramid and the musical chairs team unwrapping of a thoroughly duct taped object below as well. In the end Mrs. Z's Red Bulls walked away with first place (a nacho chips n cheese and sherbert ice cream party!) Yum.

What's left? I have to finish cleaning my house and packing. Beyond that I am T minus 48 hours. At that point Quinhagak becomes part of my past and is no longer my present. Ouch, that is a hard pill to swallow. But what a time is has been. I mean just look at these pics. My cup overflowth.
